Sharon Marie Malnarick

Juy 14, 1958-Oct. 21, 2018

Sharon Marie Malnarick, 60, died on Oct. 21, 2018 surrounded by her family. She was born July 14, 1958 in Anchorage, where she was raised. In 1976, she met and married her best friend and love of her life, Steve Malnarick, who she adoringly referred to as her “Hun.” Together they raised two beautiful sons in the town of Homer. As a family, they spent their winters in Kailua- Kona, Hawaii, a special town near and dear to her heart.

Sharon was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses on Feb. 17, 1974 and served Jehovah God faithfully her entire life. She was well-known for volunteering her time sharing in Bible education work as she loved her Creator. It was something she enjoyed doing to help and encourage others, anywhere and anytime.

As the end of her life neared, she made it well known that she was not afraid and had full faith in the promise of the resurrection found at John 5:28 and Acts 24:15. The focus of her life was to serve Jehovah faithfully till the end, and she accomplished her goal.

“Throughout her life she was a very warm and loving wife, mother, grandmother, and aunt to her family. Her husband lovingly referred to her as ‘so sweet’ as this was a perfect reflection of who she was as a person to the core. She will be greatly missed from all who came to know her,” her family said.

Survivors include her husband, Steve Malnarick, of Anchorage; children, Tal and Lydia Malnarick of Anchorage and Kyce and Taylor Malnarick of Anchorage; grandchildren, Nalia and Knox Malnarick of Anchorage; and sister, Betty Metcalf of Anchorage.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Gail and Kathy Allred; her mother and father-in-law, Louis and Shirley Malnarick; and her sister, Donna Zastrow.

Memorial services were held for Sharon Malnarick at 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 3, 2018, at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 2301 Strawberry Road, Anchorage, Alaska.
