Sharon Pioch, 70, passed away on July 31, 2017, in Deerfield Beach, Florida, of natural causes in the comfort of her home. She lived a simple life and loved South Florida and spending time with friends. The thing that Sharon enjoyed most in life was the relationship she had with her son Paul, whom she gave up for adoption at birth.
Sharon went to Valparaiso University and graduated from the University of Miami with a degree in Education and worked as a teacher. Her parents were Bob and Shirley Pioch and she was born and raised in Jackson, Michigan, along with three sisters and a brother. Her parents moved to Ft. Lauderdale in 1971 and Sharon joined them shortly thereafter. Sharon took care of her mother for several years after her father passed away in 1975. She is survived by her son Paul Larsen, her grandson Nick Larsen, her sisters Margie Campbell (Ann Arbor, MI), Barbara Beyer (Columbus, OH) Beverly Pioch (Columbus, OH) and brother Bill Pioch (Asheville,NC) as well as nieces and nephews.
There will be a Memorial Gathering on September 30th at 11:00am with a small lunch afterwards at Zion Lutheran Church in Deerfield Beach, Florida, for her local friends and church family. There will be a Memorial Gathering for family at a later date at Clark Lake, Michigan, where her family spent the summers enjoying life on the lake boating and water skiing. A portion of her ashes will be committed to the Atlantic Ocean and the remainder to Clark Lake. We look forward to seeing Sharon again in Heaven with Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Dear Sharon, Can't believe you are gone from us with no time for goodbyes. How do I put into words 45 years of precious memories? Remember all those Christmas cookies we made every year. You are in my heart everyday. In God's Heaven there is no more riding buses, or insulin needles, or stretching pennies, or figuring out cell phones. These struggles are behind you. Deepest sympathy to all of your family and a special hug for your beloved grandson. In God's time I will see you again. With a world of love and tears, Linda

I remember my cousin Sharon as always being happy and funny! I have fond memories of trips with my parents and brothers going to Clark Lake and Jackson, MI, Toledo, OH and trips to Canada for the fishing trips at the cabin there with my grandparents. Remember the family reunions at Clark Lake and having fun on the lake. Margie and Sharon would jump in their boat and ski (something I could never do!). Later, after Uncle Bob passed, remember Aunt Shirley and Sharon coming up to NY to visit my parents. We went to New York City with them to see the sights and had good times. Living in NC now, I regret that I didn't take the time to visit Sharon in FL. Time passes by so quickly! The fond memories will never go away. It is very sad that Sharon has passed and I will miss her. With love, Cousin Joan

I first met Sharon in the early 1970's. We became friends and I am proud to call her my friend. We had so much fun at Southport Raw Bar drnking beer skipping work and sailing the seas. Sharon loved to sail. Her Body may be gone but her spirit will last for all of eternity. May she rest in peace and I'm sure she is in heaven. God Bless!

Being with my Uncle Bob, Anut Shirley,and my Michigan cousins are among my earliest memories. Sharon followed me into this world by only five months. I have many pleasant memories of Sharon: with my parents, brother and sister celebrating many a Chistmas time at Grandpa and Granda Pioch's house in Toledo and the Bloomfield house in Jackson, summer fun at Clark Lake, the fishing trip at Lake Wabatonguishi,visiting our grandparents in Fort Lauderdale, and exploring New York City. These loving memories will never fade. I am very simply sad Sharon has departed. With Love, Cousin John
