Born March 20, 1964 in Washington, DC. A truly spirited, generous, and humorous mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend passed away Thursday, August 2, 2018 after a three year heroic battle with chordoma cancer. She is survived by her husband, Dave Hagar; two children, Brian and Tommy Katula; her father Thomas J. Egan; and five siblings: Tom and wife Suzie, Mike and wife Jeanne, Bill and wife Liz, Jim and wife Tita, and Kate, and her 13 nieces and nephews and six cousins. She also leaves behind a large and cherished community of friends from Chevy Chase and Sherwood Forest who actively and lovingly supported her and her family throughout her three year struggle with brain cancer.
Born in Chevy Chase, Maryland, and graduating from Blessed Sacrament School in 1978 and Georgetown Visitation Preparatory School in 1982, she spent much of her summer childhood amongst family and friends in Sherwood Forest, Maryland. She continued to spend her summers in Sherwood throughout her adult life, sharing her love for family gatherings and her joy in spending time with life-long friends.
Sharon was an accomplished and lifelong athlete, inducted into the Georgetown Visitation Athletic Hall of Fame and a member of the Dickinson College Rugby Club. She graduated from Dickinson College in 1986 and continued her education at George Washington University Law School, graduating in 1995 with a Juris Doctorate in Law and then eventually becoming a partner at the family law firm, Stohlman, Beuchert, Egan & Katula. She was devoted to her clients, passionate and committed to furthering DC Catholic Archdiocese programs and initiatives, with a special interest in strengthening educational opportunities and institutions for young people. She was active in her local communities and with national charities. She supported the Brendon Sail Training Program, served on the Board of Directors for the Summit School, and was an active supporter of The Chordoma Foundation among others.
She was adored by family and friends, her loving, funny, and supportive spirit felt by all.
