(nee Rous)

Born: September 2, 1912

Died: December 31, 2009

Peacefully in Greenwoods at age 97, after a full life.

Nora grew up in the Ottawa Valley, one of the beautiful Rous daughters. Her life changed dramatically when she met and married Flight Sergeant Marshal Sharp from Vancouver in 1938. As an airforce wife she travelled the country with him, bearing five active children. They took early retirement and moved to Salt Spring Island in 1960 where they continued to raise their children, create gardens, build rock walls and sail the coast in their boat, Sonsy. Marshal died in 1973, and Nora continued the manufacture of flint and steel survival firelighters and providing copies of his photos (now in the Salt Spring archives).

 Nora is survived by her five children, Betty Taylor (SSI), Bob Sharp [Clara] (Whitehorse), Don Sharp [Gail] (SSI), Diane Sharp [Bertrand] (Qualicum Beach) and Brenda Timbers [Bob] (Ship’s Point), nine grandchildren, eleven great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild.  She will be deeply missed by her sister Dorothy Jessiman and her family in the east.
