Sharon A. (Veir) Zamansky, passed away Monday, Feb. 11, 2019 at the age of 74. She had been a resident at the Good Shepherd Lutheran Home for the last six years.   

Sharon was born in Rushford to Stanley and Alta Mae (Bremmer) Veir on Sept. 10, 1944. Sharon graduated from Rushford High School in 1962. She worked for Tri-County Electric in Rushford for five years. She then left Rushford in 1967 to attend Weaver Airline School in Kansas City and later accepted a job with United Airlines in Chicago. 

Sharon supervised different department within UAL, enjoying her work supervising the Hawaiian Desk and the Help Desk that assisted travel agents. Sharon was named United Airlines Supervisor of the Year in 1976. Sharon was able to supervise and befriend the staff that worked for her developing lifelong friendships after she retired in 2003. 

Sharon married Philip Zamansky in 1975 at the Coco Palms Resort, Lihue, Kauai, Hawaii. Together they enjoyed traveling and staying in touch with family and friends throughout the world. Phil passed away in 1999.

Sharon loved her family and friends and would do anything for them. She enjoyed her flower garden, lunch with friends, entertaining, traveling, and, of course, shopping. Sharon was an avid Bulls, Bears, and Cleveland Browns fan, but her favorites were the R-P teams where she cheered on her nephews, Eric and Wade, and their teammates.

Sharon is survived by her sister Susan (Brian) Thompson, Peterson; nephew Eric (Jessica) Thompson, Chatfield, Minn., and their children Aubrey and Ethan; nephew Wade (Sarah) Thompson, Sunfish Lake, Minn., and their son Oskar; stepchildren Cal Zamansky, Berkley, Calif., and Pam (Fred) Goldman, Scottsdale, Ariz.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Philip Zamansky, and parents, Stanley and Alta Mae Veir.

 Sharon was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2007 and met the challenges of this terrible illness with grace, faith, and support from her family and friends. She also received love and care from the wonderful staff at the Good Shepherd Lutheran Home and St. Croix Hospice. 

In lieu of memorials, the family encourages readers to send flowers to someone they love. Sharon enjoyed giving and receiving flowers and always believed that flowers should be sent to someone that can enjoy them that day. 

Private funeral services will be held at later date with burial being at North Prairie Lutheran Church, Lanesboro, Minn.
