Obituary for Sharon Ann Villielm

Sharon A. Villielm, 74, of Center Road, High Falls passed away at home while in the comforting presence of her loving family early Friday morning, April 16, 2021.

She was born in Ansonia, CT on January 12th, 1947, a daughter of the late William and Lillian (Fischl) Fitzgerald.

Sharon was employed as a certified nursing assistant for the Ulster County Infirmary for several years before returning to the Kingston Hospital as an x-ray technician.

She loved dancing, especially Austrian folk dancing mostly associated with Schuhplattler, reading, baking, and flowers, especially roses. Most paramount to Sharon was raising and loving her family.

Several nieces, nephews and one cousin also survive.

In addition to her parents, she is predeceased by one son, Robert P. Villielm, Jr.

The family has entrusted the Gilpatric-VanVliet Funeral Home, 339 Broadway, Ulster Park, Town of Esopus, with the care and funeral arrangements for Sharon.
