Sharon Marie (Louks) Young, age 53, of Rochester, passed away Jan. 17, 2018, at Saint Marys Hospital, of complications with the flu.

Sharon was born to Julie (Bergerson) and Roger "Butch" Louks on Dec. 27, 1964, at the Owatonna Hospital. Sharon graduated in 1983, from Hayfield High School.

Sharon loved her husband, Jon Michael; her children; little dog, Tank; all of her grandbabies; music; and all of the kids she has worked with over the years. Children brought her such joy. Her last job being a paraprofessional at Rochester Beacon Academy. Working with special needs children was her passion her entire life.

Sharon also enjoyed music, shopping, adventures, and trips around Minnesota. She loved a good nap, but her most favorite being her joy of Christmas, that was spread across her community. She was always involved in outreach programs and donations needed. She was always the first one to lend a helping hand to anyone even a complete stranger. Sharon leaving us will leave a large hole in many hearts, as she touched many lives.
