Sharron (Sharri) Jean Knusel (nee. Gardner) passed away peacefully at St. Monica’s Senior Living on Thursday, February 11, 2021 at the age of 80 years old, having lived a full life. Sharri was born and raised in Milwaukee, graduating from Washington High School in 1958. She attended Marquette University for a degree in dental hygiene which she practiced for 8 years. Then in mid-life Sharri returned to school and earned a degree in nursing which she practiced until she retired. Her favorite job was working with a geneticist because she was fascinated by the science. Sharri was always very curious and loved to learn new things by taking classes, listening to lectures, watching PBS, and traveling. She and her late husband, Jack, traveled all over the world including the Soviet Union, Europe, Mexico, Canada, the Caribbean, Hawaii, and Iceland. Her favorite trip was to Australia and New Zealand. Volunteering was an important part of Sharri’s adult life. When her son and step-children were young she served as a Sunday School teacher and parish worker in her church, as well as a Girl Scout leader and treasurer of the PTA. Later, she worked with Interfaith, taught life skills to Hmong immigrants, and was a Chief Inspector at the polls. Sharri was a loving and thoughtful mother and friend. She was also a fiercely practical, called-it-like-she-saw-it, confident person with a good sense of humor and a great laugh. A very creative person. Sharri loved painting, writing poetry and gardening. She will be greatly missed by her son, Todd V. Lucas, her chosen daughter, Kaye Glennon (Julie Day), and her many friends. A huge thank you to the staff at St. Monica’s and Compassionate Care Hospice for your gentleness, care and compassion with Sharri. Sharri will be interred at Wisconsin Memorial, but there will most likely be no service. Please lift a glass, share a laugh, or donate to a worthy cause and remember her.
