Sr. M. Sharon (Mary Margaret) Goodburn, OSF, passed away Feb. 23, 2018, at Mohun Health Care Center, Columbus. She was born on Jan. 31, 1929, in Akron, OH to George L and Mary Goodburn of Columbus. Sr. Sharon chose to devote her life to serving God as a Sister of St. Francis of Penance and Christian Charity of Stella Niagara, NY, making her final profession of vows in 1951. She earned a bachelor's degree at Nazareth College, Rochester NY and an MBA at Xavier University, Cincinnati. Early in her professional career, Sr. Sharon worked in schools in New Jersey, New York and Ohio as well as the Education Office of the Diocese of Columbus. Sr. Sharon first taught at St. Francis DeSales High School from 1965-1969. In 1973, Sr. Sharon returned to St. Francis DeSales, where she found her true passion: teaching. An accounting, shorthand and typing/word processing instructor there for 25 years, she had the pleasure of teaching many future faculty members of DeSales. After retiring as a teacher, she continued on for 16 more years doing administrative services for the school she loved. Her life was dedicated to empowering young people to discover their God-given talents and to share those talents with the world. Sr. Sharon was preceded in death by her parents, brothers George L Jr. and John Goodburn and sister Roseann Babak. She is survived by brothers, Michael (Karen) and Paul (Marybeth) Goodburn; sister, Grace Hartman; sister-in-law, Sharon Goodburn; 25 nieces and nephews, numerous great and great-great nieces and nephews, and her DeSales family and friends.
