Anne was born on Aug. 14, 1936, at Sagle, Idaho (in a shack between two trees) to Alphonse and Edna (Larson) Turcotte.
Anne was raised by her mother, Edna, and stepfather, Clarence Gottberg. As a child, she lived in California, northern Idaho and Spokane, Washington, where she graduated from high school. She married Boyd Sharp in Spokane on June 24, 1956. The couple lived in Spokane, Baker City, Pendleton and Klamath Falls before moving to Umatilla in 2000.
Anne loved her family dearly and enjoyed every moment she had with them. She enjoyed giving Hallmark Christmas ornaments to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren annually. Taking photos of family to create photo albums and to update her wall collages was important to her.
She enjoyed hosting family reunions and get-togethers. She was an excellent homemaker, kept a spotless home, was a talented cook and loved caring for her husband and children. She also enjoyed gardening, planting her flowers, working in her yard and traveling.
She was preceded in death by her parents; and a brother, Billy Gottberg.
Survivors include her husband of 61 years, Boyd; sons, Rocky Sharp and Mike (Jo) Sharp; daughters, Deb (Joel) Underwood, Sue Sharp and Barbara (Mark) Lizotte; 13 grandchildren: Cindy, Shane, Rachel, Aaron, Anna, Andrea, Joe, Stephanie, Leah, TJ, Chantal, Josh and Bella; and 12 great-grandchildren; and two brothers, Roy and Leon.
The family suggests memorial contributions to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital or to Boys Town.
