Sharon Knafel

July 31, 1962 — August 10, 2022

Sharon, 60, of Copley, Ohio passed peacefully on August 10, 2022. She grew up in Boston Township, now the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, and attended Woodridge High School, class of '81.

Sharon is survived by her husband of 40 years, John, twin sons Matthew (Kendra) and Andrew (Jennifer), sister Cathleen Kornuta (Paul), grandsons Zachary and Evan, and stepmother Maggie Boodey. Sharon was preceded in death by her father Carl Boodey, mother Shirley, and grandson Joshua Knafel.

Sharon battled an illness for 37 years, and despite her circumstances, she's always maintained a positive attitude and never complained. She resided at Copley Health Center, and the family would like to extend a gracious thank you for all their care and compassion. Sharon's life was an example to many. She was a kind and caring person who one could turn to, a loving wife and mother. She went home to Jesus with family at her side.
