Private family services will be held for Sharon.
Memorials may be made to the family for future designation.
Biglin's Mortuary in O'Neill is in charge of the arrangements.
Sharon was born on Feb. 17, 1945 in Tilden to Jerome and Helen (Rodgers) Velder. She attended Valentine Public Schools and O'Neill Public Schools before graduating from O'Neill.
Sharon met Gary Zakrzewski in O'Neill and the couple married on Jan. 29, 1965. To this union four children were born Michele, Meleony, Milissa and Jeremy.
Sharon enjoyed and was very talented at keeping things running smoothly. She juggled many tasks with grace and grit. From raising children to dispatching, and from cooking to bookkeeping – she did it all. She wore many hats, and wore them all incredibly well without expecting any sort of recognition.
Sharon enjoyed crocheting, reading books, watching western TV shows and playing slot machines at the casino. Her greatest pride and joys however, were watching her grandchildren and great-grandchildren learn and grow.
Sharon is survived by her husband of 58 years Gary Zakrzewski; four children Michele (Charlie) Babl, Meleony (Troy) Wright, Milissa Zakrzewski and Jeremy (Carly) Zakrzewski; nine grandchildren Adam and Christopher Babl, Allison, Travis (Megan) Wright, Reagan Smith and Cody, Hannah, Blake and Case Zakrzewski; four great-grandchildren; and one sister Connie Velder.
She was preceded in death by her parents Jerome and Helen (Rodgers) Velder, an infant son Gerald and one brother Merlin.
