Sharon “Sweet Shari” Luanne Becker
December 8, 1939 – December 29, 2018
Sharon Becker passed away in Lakewood Colorado December 29, 2018 due to natural causes.
Sharon was born December 8, 1939 to her parents Vera Annabelle Garbe and Merle William Garbe in Denver Colorado. Sharon, in her youth, was in the Pep Club. She worked at Mountain States Telephone CO In the Directory Dept. and Sales Clerical Unit. Sharon was also a nurse’s aide at Lamb Memorial Hospital. She then went on to hold a file clerk and accounts payable position until she found her passion job working in Blackhawk at the Isle of Capri Casino. She was at home there for 8 years until she retired in 2007.
Sharon always had a lot of friends and enjoyed dancing. She even belonged to the USO in her youth along with her sisters, Pam and Nancy. Sharon and her sisters used to also love to go to Teddy’s Lounge and dance to the oldies music there. She loved spending time with family, going up the hill to the casino playing slot machines and as her all time favorite, the Christmas season. Sharon loved decorating for Christmas; she always had an impeccable Christmas tree and loved driving around looking at Christmas lights every year. Sharon was also an avid sports fan. Broncos were her #1 team, but in the summer time she had the Rockies games on more often than not. Winter it would turn to Av’s games if the Broncos were not playing. Screaming at the TV during a game was a Becker home sport.
Sharon married the love of her life Stephen Becker on March 28th, 1992. They both loved going to the casino and watching sports (Sharon yelled at the TV more than Steve). Sharon took care of Steve for many years, as he suffered from MS until he passed on December 30, 2016.
Sharon is survived by her Brother William Garbe; sister Pam Stevens; daughter Tina (Gerald) Hodge; son Anthony Crowder; grandson Brandon Hanz; step-grandsons Cody and Corey Hodge; 2 nephews Chris Garbe and Edwin Garbe; 6 nieces Becky Garbe, Cindy DeWolfe, Anna Straley, Gretchen Stevens, Jennifer Stevens and Paige Patron. Sharon is preceded in death by her Husband Stephen Becker; daughter Antoinette Crowder mother Annabelle Garbe; father Merle Garbe; sister Nancy Garbe; sister-in-law Lorraine Garbe.
A Memorial Service will be held on January 15, 2019, 10:00 am at Unity Spiritual Center Denver 3021 S. University Blvd., Denver CO 80210.

Memories Timeline


  1. My dear Aunt.. You showed me so much love, you were there for me like a second mom always. I love you so much, so much. It’s hard to think that you are gone from us now but you will always stay in my heart forever. I will miss you so much and cherish all the moments we had together , so many wonderful memories I was blessed to have you in my life. Rest in peace now my sweet Aunt. I love you

  2. My loving Aunt Sharon,
    I wish i had more memories of us, though i do not remember much of my childhood, I will always remember your loving embrace and your sincere smile. You have a love that everyone can get comfy to and im sad to have lost time with you but any time i have gotten i will cherish the most. Though it is tragic to see you go, I know now youre one of our Guardians protecting the family where angels like you belong. Earth is hell. And youre free of any pain and suffering now. I love you. I always have and I always will. May peace be with you eternally, Auntie. You will always be in my heart and thoughts.💙

  3. Shari,
    I told you once, not long ago, that I didn’t know how to be without you. And now I’m hating every minute of being without you. I know that I was so lucky to have you for a sister throughout my life and I will be eternally grateful for that. I really miss coming to see you all the time, even though, most of the last year of doing that was for taking you to your treatments and doing whatever else I could to help you. I would gladly do it all over again if I had to, but I’m very glad you no longer have to deal with pain, fears, confusion or any other discomfort that someone as wonderful as you should not have to deal with.
    I’ve thought a lot, lately, about sometimes when I looked at you and you had a very sweet smile on your face and I could feel so much love coming from you. Thank you for all the warm fuzzies, all the help you gave me as we were growing up and just being my wonderful “Big Sister” as I referred to you a lot in the past few months. I will miss everything about you every day of whatever is left of my life and will look forward to being with you again one day. Until then, I love you with all of my heart.

  4. My deepest condolences to the friends and family of the Sharon. May your treasured memories bring you joy, and may ‘the God of all comfort’ give you strength, along with a measure of peace for your grieving hearts at this most difficult time.
    2 Corinthians 1:3
