We were saddened to learn of Sharon's passing and our sympathy and prayers go out to her family.
Sharon was a teacher at Alexander Ferguson Elementary while our daughters attended. She taught our now 30 yr. old daughter who blossomed under "Mrs. Mason's" gentle and learned teaching. Sharon encouraged Lindsay to strive to reach her potential in every way as she did with all her students.
We will continue to carry special memories of Sharon and are thinking of all of you.

Sharon was one of the first people I spoke to at Knox when she was looking for volunteers to play handbells. That was the beginning of several years of music making and friendship! I will always remember her cheerful, welcoming smile. Peace be with you all.
I did not know Sharon, but had heard about her from my friend Janet, she sounds like a wonderful person, sorry I did not get to meet her, "may she rest in Peace". My prayers and thoughts are with the family at this time of their need.

Condolences to Bert & family.
It was always such a delight to see Sharon's joyful face in the Knox choir loft. The Knox family grieves your loss.
Sharon was a very talented teacher & musician. I have known her for many years at Knox Church as an organizer of the Hand Bell Ringers, Junior Choir & a marvellous Sunday School Teacher. She was always very friendly, extremely kind & offered help to others. Her family was a very important part of her life.
May God Bless you all at this sad time.

Sharon was a gifted music teacher and always gave of herself to her students. Always a sparkle to staff and students, with kind words, thoughts and deeds. Sharon was a respected colleague of the Harold Riley Staff although her time with us was cut short due to health issues. Her picture in the Herald says it all..

Sharon was a lovely lady. I got to know Sharon by Donna MacCalder. Sharon will be missed. She was a lovely mother and a great grandma. She will be missed. Rest in peace Sharon.
Our condolences to you at the loss of Sharon. She will be missed, for sure. Heaven is rejoicing and Earth is sorrowing.
With love and prayers

I first knew Sharon as the friend of my friend, Donna Macalder but then I taught with her at Glenbrook. Funny how we ended up around the piano. I adored her sense of fun and talent with words, her intellect and her spirit. Special regards to Karen and Ralph. I hope that good memories, family and friends and time will bring you comfort. I bet she and Donna are having some fun at last and again.
Sharon could always make me feel like that I was exactly the person she hoped would walk though her door at that moment. Her friendly smile and cheerful disposition will always be remembered.
My condolences to her family.

I remember fondly how much Sharon cared for all the children she taught. We love her because her eldest son married our daughter. We love her contagious laugh. I remember how much she loved her cat King Charles. She had humour and sincere care for so many.
I knew Sharon in the 60's as the mom of my best friends and a wonderful neighbor. She was such a lovely person - so kind and welcoming and full of joy. My fondest memories are of standing around the piano in her living room listening to her sing songs from The Sound of Music and her Christmas cookie swaps! My thoughts and condolences to all the family. May the wonderful memories of her bring you comfort.
I remember Sharon as a very giving and fun living lady who was also so talented musically. I remember distinctly how with no hesitation she offered to teach my daughter piano lessons - she wanted to share her wonderful gift of music and we were so thankful. She brightened the room with her smile and laughter. Thinking of all the family as they grieve this special lady.
Sharon was my husband`s cousin. She was a wonderfull person. I first met her many years ago, when my husband [William Edwards} , myself Fran and our two children Karen and Robert [Bob}, went to Calgary for the Calgary Stampede. The first day we attended the parade and after went for lunch, on the way "Bill" twisted his ankle tearing some of the ligaments in it. A taxi took us to the hospital, a walking cast was put on and crutches given to him. He was not to walk on it for 48 hours. Bill found it very difficult to use the crutches and we debated whether we should just go home. Then Bill thought of his cousin Sharon and contacted her, she took over our holiday. She drove us to the two events we had tickets for at the Stampede and then took us around to various sites in Calgary, all the while entertaining our children. Our holiday week was saved by this wonderfull fun loving lady. It was the first time I had met her and she just blew me away. We have many memories of our times with her and her family.

I sang with Sharon at Knox for some years. And sometimes Jim would sing with us too! My sympathy to Jim & the rest of the family
Sharon must surely have been awesome in her prime because she still displayed great wit, charm, and formidable Scrabble skills when I first met her in her assisted living home. My mom and I enjoyed numerous Scrabble matches with her and Janet and we were sorry to see them have to end. May she rest in peace. Love & condolences to our friend Janet and all Sharon's family.
Sharon was always armed and ready with a smile, a whimsical song, a poem, or just beautifully encouraging words. Such a joyous person and such an inspiration! Her poetry writing was magical. With just moments notice, she created funny, quirky, sentimental rhymes for any occasion, with the sole purpose of making people smile. She touched our family in many ways and we are so lucky to have known her. I see her now in the spirit of her wonderfully creative and brilliant children and grandchildren. Thank you Sharon for blessing your community with your loving, generous spirit.
I taught with Sharon at Clem Gardner. She had the most incredible wit....and we shared many laughs together.My sympathy to the family. Kay James. ( Collins )
Sharon was like a grandmother to me as well. My fondest memories of her are of the times I would pick her up at Janet's place to drive her to choir at Knox. Rest in peace Sharon, you are a beautiful soul and in gods hands now.
Mrs. Mason is the teacher I have the most and best memories with. She taught me Chess, took our Chess Club to tournaments, read Judy Blume books aloud in class (with voices!), sang beautifully and I believe she even played piano and helped compose our school song. She made me feel so loved and I will never forget it! Mrs. Mason, if Alex Ferguson was the greatest little school in town, it was because you were there. Thank you so much for everything you did. We were such a lucky group of students.
Sharon touched many lives with her indomitable spirit, infectious laughter and kind willingness to reach out and help. My prayers and thoughts are with your family - that you will be comforted with many wonderful memories.
Sharon Mason was pure joy. My sister Jane's Mother in Law formally, but to me she was a grandmother to all. Whenever we visited Calgary we were welcomed with smiles and songs and chipper attitude. We will all remember her so fondly.
To me Sharon is known as Mrs. Mason, my third grade teacher at Alexander Ferguson elementary in 1991. I have many fond memories of music class with her as well. You could always tell she enjoyed her job and loved teaching. It was sad to hear of her passing but I know there have been many students of whose lives she has touched.
