On the morning of November 18, 2019 Sharon Stewart Finney passed away at St. Joseph Medical in Polson, Montana following several years of failing health. Sharon was born in Helena, Montana to John and Violet Stewart in 1943 the third of their children. She enjoyed early rock & roll, alpine and water skiing, travel, and mischief in general before graduating from Helena High School. Sharon attended college at University of Montana in Missoula where she was a member of Angel Flight. She studied Radio & Television Broadcasting requiring theater classes where she met the love of her life, Wayne Finney. After marrying, the young couple lived in New Mexico and then Texas for Wayne’s USAF pilot training where their daughter Shannon was born. Shortly after buying their first home in Great Falls, Montana, Sharon gave birth to her son, Jay. Once the children started school Sharon became highly involved with the PTA. She became the state president, then a member of the national PTA board allowing her to visit many interesting cities across the country. As an adult Sharon enjoyed travel, working in sales, hunting, fishing, shopping, vintage cars, cooking, and reading. After the children graduated from college and Wayne’s retirement from the service Sharon and Wayne moved to Somers, Montana for the next adventure owning and operating the Osprey Inn Bed and Breakfast; both Sharon and Wayne became real estate brokers in the Flathead Valley. After 15 years of living on the northern shore of Flathead Lake the Finneys retired to Polson, Montana where Sharon lived for more than 15 years before her passing.

I was saddened to read about Sharon's passing. We go back many many years. I was their babysitter since Jay was a baby. Sharon and I became friends as she just lived down the street from us, and as a teen I could really talk to her. For 4 summers I went with them to Lake Mary Ronan to help with the kids, but also was allowed to have my own time and create many wonderful memories. Over the years we kept in touch through social media, but I had no idea Sharon was so sick. I want to send my condolences to all the family. I know she will be missed.

Wayne and family,
My very deepest condolences to you and yours. This truly is the toughest part of life.
If I had an address, I would send a card.
I remember our family fun days at MANG. Such good years.
Roger has been gone 17 years, life is just not the same without our "soul mates".
Hugs to you all.
Bonnie L Larsen. ❤😘🇺🇸

Sharon was a wonderful woman! Years ago I helped her with her and Wayne's 50th wedding anniversary invitations when working at a local print shop in town. She was so funny and kind. Sharon reminded me a lot of my grandmother, not really how she acted as much, but how she spoke. I've seen her a few times over the years while working at the credit union, as well as the Mission Valley year sales. Although, I don't think she remembered me, but she left an impression on me that will last for years. I'll be praying for her family and friends. Godspeed
