Sharlene was born September 1, 1945, in Quincy, Massachusetts, to Olive and Richard "Chubby" Robertson. She is survived by her husband of 41 years, Raymond, daughter Kelly, mother Olive and six immediate siblings, Susan, Dianne, Cheryle, Larry, Jeff and Ricky. Sharlene is also survived by a very large extended family, each of whom she cherished deeply. She now joins Chubby and her sister, Kim, in all of our hearts.
Sharlene was one of eight children born and raised in the South Shore of Boston. After marrying Ray and giving birth to their daughter, Kelly, the family's adventurous spirit moved them to several locations including Massachusetts, California and finally to Sharlene's beloved Vermont.
Sharlene's love of travel brought her adventures around the globe, always encouraging others to join her in fulfilling that passion.
What Sharlene will be most remembered for is her sense of humor and dedication and devotion to her community, especially children. Sharlene worked in the Ludlow School System for 21 years, touching the lives of the kids, fellow staff and parents. Sharlene also volunteered as a friend of the elderly at Gill Terrace Apartments. Sharlene adored all in her life and positively affected each life she touched. She was incredibly grateful and moved by all of the outreach, love and support she received over the last six months.
There will be a celebration of her life at 210 Preedom Hill, Ludlow, VT 05149, at the house of Heidi Baitz and Michael Normyle this Sunday, June 10, at 1 p.m. Guests are asked to carpool.
Adams Funeral Homes is assisting family with arrangements.
