Sharon Kay Allen Obituary
ALLEN Sharon Kay Allen, "Kay Kay" or "Shari Kay", 53 years old of Chubbuck, Idaho, formerly of Columbus, Ohio and Ketchikan, Alaska, passed away at home due to complications from diabetes, on Tuesday, July 24, 2012 with her husband and faithful dog Joey by her side. Shari was born on November 1, 1958 in Columbus to William and Margaret (Stiner) Lint. She married in 1978 to one of her true loves, Brad Westhoven, giving birth to her two wonderful children Lisa (1979) and Josh (1982). She and Brad divorced in 1990 and Shari had several adventures in love and life, leading her to live and visit many wonderful places in the US including Boston, Dallas, Houston, New Orleans, and places in New Hampshire, Arizona, Hawaii, California. Her life eventually took her to Ketchikan, Alaska, where Shari met her other true love, David Allen. They married in 2005 and moved to Chubbuck in 2007. Shari was a uniquely artistic individual who held a wonderfully childlike view of life and the beauty found in this world. She was very artistic and created pieces in oils, watercolor, sculpting, poetry and even wearable art. She was also a talented chef and pastry chef. Shari was equally comfortable at an elegant dinner party or fishing off the Alaska waters on a cold, drizzly day wearing coveralls and Extra-Tuffs. She had an exceptional capacity for unconditional love which she applied to everyone she met. Shari was preceded in death by her sister Melanie. She is survived by her husband, David; her children, Lisa and Josh Westhoven; her step-children, David Allen II, Travis (Theresa) Allen, Tyler "TJ" Allen and Libby (Brandin) Steiner; granddaughter, Jessalynn Steiner; her parents, William and Margaret; and her siblings, Gary (Connie) Lint of Mesa, AZ, Timothy Lint, Gayla (Vernon Carter) Lint, Eric "Rick" (Brandi) Lint, and William "Bill" Lint; and many beloved nieces and nephews. She will also be missed by her dearest friend, Heidi (Roger) Nelson of Seattle. Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday at St. Elizabeth Catholic Church, 6077 Sharon Woods Blvd., where family will receive friends one hour prior to Mass. Interment Pioneer Cemetery. Arrangements by HILL FUNERAL HOME, Westerville. Shari had a unique presence in life and will hold a special place in our hearts forever.
