She also enjoyed sewing, knitting and helping her family in their floral business.

Sharon had a great respect for education. She studied at Bowling Green State University and Toledo University, majoring in music and psychology. She fell in love and married James Paul Fleck on Oct. 7, 19950, in St. Mary Church in Tiffin. Tragically, in l952, she became a widow with two infant sons. In 1959, she met George Ember and in the following years had three daughters. They lived in Joliet, Ill., until they moved to California in l962.

After moving to San Fernando Valley, Calif. as a single mother of five children, she began a successful real estate career in the mid-1960's and in the mid-1970's she pursued a second career in escrow, until she had a stroke in l991, 18 years later.

Preceded in death by her husbands, James Paul Fleck and George Ember, and her grandson, Spencer Christian Engstrom, Sharon is survived by her sons, David Fleck and James Fleck, and her daughters, Cynthia Engstrom, Tracy Tapia and Jeribeth Ember, and her grandchildren, Jared, Selena, Maria and Cara.

Sharon will be remembered most for her fighting Irish spirit, her hope and determination to survive, her humor and laughter, her generosity and open-hearted acceptance of others, and her unconditional love to those who mattered most, her children.

A Celebration of Sharon's life will be 2:30-4:30 p.m. Thursday, May 16, at Hoffmann-Gottfried Funeral Home. A funeral Mass will be at St. Mary Church at 2 p.m. Friday, May 17. She will be laid to rest alonside her husband, Jim Fleck, in Tiffin.
