Sharon Lee Ormosen Obituary

Sharon L. Ormosen was born in Merrill, Wisconsin, to Raymond and Beatrice Ormosen, and died January 22, 2014 in Yuba City at 70 years of age.

Sharon spent her early years in Beaver Dam, WI and graduated from Beaver Dam High School in 1961. In 1963 she moved to California with her family. Sharon loved water skiing and quickly became an expert teaching her friends to ski even if they didn't know how to swim. She also loved snow skiing, competitive swimming, cycling, and in later years, power walking.

In 1964, Sharon was hired by United California Bank in Marysville as a teller. She went on to earn BS and MBA degrees from Chapman College, Beale Campus. She retired from First Interstate Bank as Branch Vice President after a 25 year career. Sharon loved to fly, so after retiring she earned her private pilot's license and joined the Ninety-Nines, Inc., International Organization of Women Pilots. She also earned a teaching credential and catering/ food handling certificates and spent many years pursuing these subsequent careers. She was a member of the Sons of Norway and worshipped with many local Christian churches.
