March 27, 1944 - July 23, 2020
Sharon Faye Hennig went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Thursday, July 23, 2020. She is survived by her husband of 54 years, Arthur Hennig. Sharon was born on March 27, 1944 in Wadena, MN, the child of the late Raymond and Esther Guetzko. Sharon grew up on a dairy farm, attended a one room elementary school, and graduated from Perham, MN High School. She earned her BS degree in Education at Concordia University, Seward, NE. Sharon began her teaching career at St. John Lutheran School in York as a called worker in 1965 and taught for 45 years, longer than anyone else in its history. She also served as a Sunday school teacher, choir member, youth counselor, interim principal and director of the before and after school care program. For a number of years she conducted a very successful summer camp program at the church and school. Students remember her, not only as a caring Christian teacher, but also for her interesting classroom, filled with plants and animals. Over the years, Sharon enjoyed skiing, especially trips to Vermont and the Canadian Rockies, playing cards, reading, walking and crossword puzzles. In recent years much time was spent caring for and helping her grandchildren and great-grandchildren whom she dearly loved. In addition to her husband, she is survived by a daughter, Pamela of Felton; grandchildren, Jaime, Gregory, Joseph, and Daniel; and great-grandchildren, Breana, Neairah, Elijah, Brooklynn, Austin, Isayah and I’yanna. She is also survived by sisters, Lucinda Wegener of North Dakota and Kathy Hanson and her husband, Donald of North Dakota; sister-in-law, Carol Kern of Minnesota and a number of nieces and nephews. She was pre-deceased by a brother, Michael and step-father, Ed Kern.
