Sharon Ann Nolan, 76, of Rochester, Minn., passed away Thursday, Oct. 3, 2019, at Mayo Clinic Hospital. 

Sharon was born May 9, 1943, in Prairie du Chien, to Dorothy (Woods) and Francis “Ding” Smith. 

She attended St. Mary’s Catholic School and graduated from Prairie du Chien High School in 1961. Sharon married Gene M. Nolan on Oct. 21, 1961, at St. John’s Catholic Church in Prairie du Chien. Sharon and Gene lived in southwest Wisconsin before settling in Rochester, Minn., in 1969. Sharon was an avid reader, especially of religious and political content. She loved tending to her flowers, listening to music, had a lifetime love of boating on the Mississippi River, and enjoyed evening happy hours with her husband. Sharon’s love for her family was as big as her love for the Lord. 

She is survived by her husband of 58 years, Gene; her son, Kevin (partner Vicki); daughters; Patti (husband Paul), Bridget (husband Scott); two grandchildren, Connor and Abby, who were the apples of her eye; her beloved siblings, Patty, Peg, Larry, Tom and Lori; and a gaggle of adored nieces and nephews. 

A Mass of Christian Burial will be Friday, Oct. 11, at 11 a.m. at St. Gabriel’s Church of the Holy Family Parish, Msgr. Charles Stoetzel officiating, with burial in the Calvary Cemetery both in Prairie du Chien. Friends may call at the church on Friday from 10 a.m. until the time of Mass. The Garrity Funeral Home of Prairie du Chien is assisting the family.
