Sharon Behrendt Obituary, Death – On November 9, 2022, in Tigard, Oregon, Sharon Ann Behrendt passed away for reasons that were unknown to anyone. In Oakland, California, she was given the name Sharon Ann Parker at birth. Earl Parker and Agnes Macedo-Parker had their first child on September 14, 1944. She was 11 years old when she first encountered Robert “Bobby” Behrendt at the Alvarado Park Roller Skating Rink in Richmond, California, where she was learning to roller skate. They had a love affair that lasted their entire lives, and on May 4, 1962, in Rodeo, California, they got married. After that, they were inseparable for the next 61 years.
As a result of having two children, Tod and Rodney, Sharon and Bobby were blessed with five grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Their names are Courtney, Rachel, Dean, Danielle, and Tyler. Sharon worked for Kihei Physicians in Maui, Hawaii; Oaks Park Roller Rink in Portland, Oregon; and for the past 30 years, she has assisted Bobby in the operation of the family business, “Bob Behrendt’s Floor-decor,” which is located in Maui, Hawaii. Sharon and Bobby’s love for roller skating competition was reignited in Hawaii, where they also won multiple national titles and were inducted into the Roller Skating Hall of Fame in 2018.
Because of Sharon’s vivacious personality, her intense devotion to the game, and her extensive knowledge, she was able to coach a large number of athletes who went on to win national championships. She was a devoted wife, mother, coach, and mentor, and she lived life to the fullest. What distinguished Sharon as a person was the “cheerleader” style of support that she provided for everyone, and her friends remained friends for the rest of their lives. Her most notable accomplishments include the children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren she raised over the course of her 61-year marriage.
Sharon’s parents, Earl and Agnes, as well as her sister, Aileen Ivance, passed away before she was born. When one knows her, they are aware that just at the moment when someone says, “she is gone,” there are other eyes watching her coming and other voices ready to take her up with glad shouts of “here she comes!” On February 25, 2023, there will be a gathering to celebrate the life of the deceased at the Oaks Park Dance Pavilion.
