Sharon Weeaks


It is with great sadness that we announce that Sharon Weeaks, FNP, a noted family nurse practitioner, passed away on June 5, 2015 following a long illness brought on by COPD and Emphysema. Thank God’s mercy she no longer suffers from shortness of breath.

Sharon was born as a premature birth in Stockton, California on January 3, 1941. Her mother, Ruby V. Adams and father, Lt. Col. Lee P. Adams, preceded her in passing. Her mother often spoke of two weeks after birth, bringing Sharon home in a shoebox. Sharon was that small. She always thought that her lungs never fully developed because she was premature.

Sharon graduated from South High School in Denver, attended University of Colorado, Boulder, continuing her education at Arapahoe Community College and Metropolitan State College where she earned her Bachelors of Nursing and Family Nurse Practitioner degrees.

Her work career centered on helping people at Fort Logan retiring in 1998. Sharon then returned to “pay back” for her excellent nursing career by teaching fundamentals to CNA students at Arapahoe Community College for ten years spreading her passion to help others. Her retirement also gave her time to enjoy her favorite hobbies of reading, supporting the Colorado Rockies, the Denver Broncos and bird hunting with her husband of 54 years and their bird dogs.

As a member of Prince of Peace Lutheran Church on South Colorado Boulevard she took great pride in knowing and explaining to people how her father’s marble and tile company (Colorado Tile and Marble) donated and built the alter for the church and also a private (now open to the public) chapel at MacGregor Ave., Estes Park, Colorado on property owned at the time by long time friends and fathers business partner, Wayne and Elliot Stacey, who the daughter, Stacey, is named after.

Sharon travels to heaven leaving behind her husband, CWO Roy L. Weeaks, United States Army (Retired), a daughter, Stacey Weeaks, RN, and Dr. Jerry Hernandez, MD, who currently reside in Cordell, OK. And many friends who knew and loved her.

Please no flowers. Send a donation to your favorite charity or Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, 2400 S. Colorado Blvd., Denver, Colorado, in the name of Sharon Weeaks.
