Obituary

Sharon Marie Hemmen, a longtime resident of Sterling Heights, Michigan, died peacefully surrounded by the love of her family on March 13, 2019. She fought a courageous battle and now has won victory with her Lord and Savior. She was 61 years of age.

Born on October 5, 1957, in Dearborn, Michigan, Sharon was one of six children to Walter and Sophia Zonca (Zapawa). Growing up, she was always ahead of the times and very bright. After high school graduation, she pursued and achieved a Bachelor’s degree in accounting from Walsh College. This is where she met her beloved husband, David Hemmen. They were united in marriage at St. Anastasia Catholic Church of Troy on June 15, 1991. The couple made their home in Sterling Heights in 1996 and was blessed with two beautiful daughters of whom she loved and cherished. Sharon had a successful career as a CPA. She held the title of First Vice President of Accounting and Finance at Flagstar Bank.

Sharon was a woman who led a life with love and compassion. She always put her family first and was very active in her daughters’ lives. She was a mentor and role model to her girls by living life by example. She and David bought property in Boyne, Michigan, so she could downhill ski, sit by the fire and relax with an Irish coffee. Sharon also enjoyed snowshoeing where she could just let her mind be at rest. She loved music, especially Classic Rock, and was known to many as the “Concert Queen”. She loved her Polish heritage and loved to cook. Quite often, she put the two together, and not only had a great party but the most fabulous polish feast.

Being strong-willed and focused, nothing could stop her. Sharon was a strong advocate for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. She, along with others, formed a team and were one of the top fundraisers in 2009. Due to these efforts, she was recognized as a Hero of Breast Cancer and won a philanthropy award through Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute. Above all, she loved her family, loved her husband and especially loved being a mother to her two beautiful daughters. Though we grieve her passing, we know that Sharon has left us for a better life free from all pain and care. We are all eternally thankful for our Sharon who taught us to be more loving and genuine people by the life she led. Her light will continue to shine in our hearts forever.

Sharon is the beloved wife of David; cherished mother of Amanda and Sarah; dearest daughter of Sophia and the late Walter Zonca; loving sister of Gerry Zonca, Darlene (Elias) Zeitoune, Daniel (Diana) Zonca, Laura (Terry) Booth and Sandy (Tom) Bernier; and by many dear nieces and nephews.

Visitation will be held at Faulmann & Walsh Golden Rule Funeral Home, 32814 Utica Road, Fraser, on Friday, March 22 from 2pm – 8pm with a 7pm Scripture Service. A funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Lawrence Catholic Church of Utica on Saturday, March 23 at 10am with additional visitation starting at 9:30am. Sharon loved flowers but would want in lieu of flowers, memorials to Susan G. Komen Foundation in her memory. Share memories at www.faulmannwalsh.com.
