August 29, 1952 – March 4, 2016
Beloved daughter of Ernie and Judy Carrat, Shari passed away on Friday, March 4, 2016 after a courageous battle with cancer that she had first beaten several years earlier. Born in Chilliwack and raised in Hope, she was an eager and avid student and decided to pursue a teaching career after graduating from Hope Sr. Secondary. She received her post secondary education at the University of British Columbia where she earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Education. After a brief stay in Salmon Arm, Shari returned to the Tri-Cities area and began teaching at Pitt Meadows Secondary with a focus on special needs students. Always up for a challenge, Shari decided to take a leave from teaching and began a very successful career in real estate. Shari spent much of her last years caring for her late sister, Janice, who was diagnosed with ALS. While in Hope, Shari was a driving force behind the Care Transit Program as well. Shari is survived by her mother Judy and her brother Greg and will be deeply missed by her family and many friends who had the pleasure to know her. The family wishes to thank the doctors, nurses and all other medical staff involved in her care. Service to be held at the Grace Baptist Church in Hope, BC on Saturday, March 12, 2016 at 1:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, the family would greatly appreciate any donation made to the charity of choice.
