Frankfort – Sharon Ann (Martin) Fields, 71, went home to be with the lord October 23, 2020. She was born May 11, 1949 in Bangor, the daughter of Charles and Arlene (Kingsbury) Martin.
Sharon graduated from Hampden Academy and the Central Maine General Hospital school of Nursing RN program. Most of her career she worked in labor and delivery where Sharon assisted in the births of many souls. Before retiring, she worked in home health with a special little boy and became known as grandma Sharon.
She married the love of her life Wayne in 1970 and their beloved daughter Michelle was born in 1972. Soon after Michelle was born, they spent many happy times camping and fishing with family and friends. That tradition continued for many years with the addition of 3 much loved grandchildren.
Being with her grandchildren brought her the greatest happiness along with spending time with family and friends. Laughter at outings or playing games brought joy to her life, particularly the trivia night group.
She was predeceased by her father, Charles Martin and sister-in-law, Valerie Martin.
