Sharon Sue Giroux, age 68, of Quincy, died Thursday, October 1, 2020, at 12:10 pm in her home.

Sharon was born December 21, 1951 in Quincy, Illinois, the daughter of Charles and Ada Frances Schrepfer Adler. She married Michael Giroux on August 7, 1971 in Quincy. He survives

Sharon worked as a Registered Nurse at St. Mary's and Blessing Hospitals for over 30 years. After her retirement, she taught at the CNA program at John Wood Community College. She also served as the Director of Nursing at St. Vincent's Home. Sharon's life was spent helping others, even when it came at the expense of her own health and rest.

Sharon loved spending time with her family, including her dogs, especially if they were going out to eat or going bowling. In her spare time, which was rare, she enjoyed reading, solving puzzles, listening to music, and playing cards.

In addition to her husband, Mike, survivors include: two sons: Aaron Giroux of Canton, MO; and Stephen (Nancy) Giroux of Camdenton, MO; three grandchildren: Stephen and Airel Giroux, and Brittany Hemmingson; two great grandchildren: Atlas and Annorra Hemmingson; her sister, Charla Jo Walton of Quincy; and several nieces and nephews.

Sharon was preceded in death by her parents; her sister, Franny K. Ensor; and two brothers, Floyd and Bill Stanbridge.

Such a great Lady and RN. She knew how to take care of the patient and the family. She made the shift fly by and we had a lot of happy shifts. She made float staff feel welcome to the floor. You will be missed. Sharon was one of the good guys in nursing.

Grandma and I share a birthday and it is always so special !
I used to always look forward to our sleepovers with grandma and how she would braid my hair tight before bed so it would be curly and beautiful when I woke up.
She was always so knowledgeable and supportive and always willing to help ! She liked to dance to the crazy pop music that we listened to .

She taught me how to cook and make a Texas sheet cake which is still a family favorite , I often would call her up as an adult and ask for a reminder of how to make it!
I love her and I’m glad I have special memories of her .
