Sharon Kay Loiseau was born to Lyle and Reva Smith on October 26, 1948 in Pipestone, MN. She grew up in the communities of Pipestone, Minnesota and Flandreau, South Dakota, graduating from Flandreau High School.
On April 4, 1968, she married William Loiseau, the love of her life, in Flandreau, South Dakota. The couple were graced with 3 children and 6 grandchildren. The couple moved to Pipestone, Minnesota where ‘Bill’ worked for Lange Manufacturing. In 1969, they moved to Watertown, South Dakota where Sharon took great joy in raising her family and working from home.
Sharon’s greatest joys in life were her love of crafting, her grandchildren and spending time with her friends. Sharon had a great gift of making the most beautiful crocheted afghans. She was extremely talented, and attending craft fairs was a love both her and Bill shared. She would make her crocheted items and he would make his leather goods.
Grateful for being part of Sharon’s life are her 3 children: Kim (Keith) Van Well of Watertown SD, Tracy (Leon) Heyn of Harrisburg SD, and Todd (Joy) Loiseau of Fargo ND; one brother, Gary Smith of Delano, MN; and six grandchildren: Elliot Van Well, Sydney Van Well, Madisyn Heyn, Michaela Heyn, Johanna Loiseau and Erin Loiseau.
She is preceded in death by her husband Bill Loiseau on September 27th, 1997, her parents Lyle and Reva Smith and her sister Linda Johnson.
