Sharon Ann (Chapweske) Wilson of Glendive, formerly of Miles City, passed peacefully at the Eastern Montana Veterans Home in Glendive on January 6, 2019. Sharon was 77 years old.

Sharon was born on May 27, 1941 in St. Paul, Minn. She was the oldest of four children born to Kay and John Chapweske. In 1955 the family moved to Miles City where she attended Sacred Heart Catholic School graduating in 1959. Sharon worked as a car hop at A&W and was a waitress at Red Rock in Miles City. Sharon met her soul mate and best friend, the late Larry Paul Wilson. They were married December 31, 1960. To this union three boys were born, Larry Paul Jr., Ricky Joe and John William. Sharon spent most of her days as a stay-at-home mom spending time with family and friends. Many days were spent at Spotted Eagle and going to garage sales. Sharon was a Princess House Crystals representative and saleswoman. The family lived in Miles City until 1980 before moving to Glendive when Larry began working in the oilfield. In Glendive Sharon worked a short time as a waitress at the Rustic. Sharon enjoyed decorating her house during the holidays and keeping up the yard. She loved being outdoors and could always be found watering, weeding and sitting in the sun by her pool.
