Kolacz, Sharon Media Photo BWSharon (LeMaigre) Kolacz of Caro, passed away unexpectedly on Friday,
December 30, 2016 at Caro Community Hospital. Sharon was born October
30, 1948 in Detroit, the daughter of the late Maurice and Bertha
(DeBoever) LeMaigre. At the age of nine, Sharon’s aunt, uncle and
cousin (Clara, Floyd and Lillian LaPratt) would come to Detroit to
visit and to take Sharon back to Caro to stay the summer until
September 29, 1967. Lil married my buddy, Jerry Guild, that summer and
Sharon met her husband-to-be, Dave Kolacz. She worked at an
architectural firm in Detroit until their wedding on July 25, 1969.
Sharon and David settled in Caro, and she soon had the misfortune of
being afflicted with R.A. that she struggled with for the rest of her
life. Sharon had to give up a lot of her dreams, but the love of her
husband, children, grandchildren and friends helped her cope with her
disabilities. Sharon enjoyed collecting Hallmark Christmas ornaments
and Precious Moments figurines. She loved spending time with her
husband, Dave, collecting Hot Wheels and going to Hot Wheels
conventions, as well as spending time with family. Sharon loved
sports, watching her boys and grandchildren play. She loved football,
especially MSU, the Chicago Bears, the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the
Detroit Red Wings hockey. She liked to listen to oldies on the radio
and was an avid Elvis fan.
Left to cherish her memory are her husband of 47 years, Dave; two sons
and their wives, David and Pamela of Cass City, Daniel and Katie of
Davison; six grandchildren, Keagen, Payton, Hailee, Brady, Braxton and
Brooklyn; special cousins, Lil and Jerry Guild, Julie Bartay, Lori
Mitchell, Marylee Gardner; and special friends, Denise Gusek, Joyce
Howell, Effie Randall and Mary Ann Papp. Sharon’s parents,
grandparents, and brother, Robert, will be welcoming her home.
A Memorial Mass will be held at 11 a.m. on Friday, January 6, 2017 at
