In loving memory of Sharon Gano: June 13, 1945 — May 30, 2023


Sharon R. (Cresap) Gano passed away peacefully at home in Battle Ground, Washington, from her battle with lymphoma. Sharon was born in Vancouver to Thomas and Lillian Cresap. Sharon was a lifelong resident of Battle Ground. She graduated from Battle Ground High School in 1963. She married Ron on May 15, 1965. She loved reading books about American history, following the Cresap society genealogy, listening to country music, going to the movies, and taking care of her flower gardens. She worked as a lunch lady for the Hockinson School District for a few years. She was a loving wife, mother, sister, grandmother and great-grandmother to her family. 

Sharon was preceded in death by her two brothers, Larry and Michael Cresap. 

Sharon is survived by her husband Ron, her sister Linda, sister-in-law Nancy, her daughter Laurie, son-in-law Jeff, son Shawn, granddaughter Kirsten, and great-grandchildren Isabella and Evan. She is also survived by her nephews and nieces: Dennis, Eddie, Daren, Susan, Andy, Debbie and Richard. 

We will miss her smile, laughter and kindness she always had for everyone. She will be cremated and laid to rest at the Venerborg Cemetery.
