Sharon Ann Behrendt passed away unexpectedly on November 9, 2022, in Tigard OR. She was born Sharon Ann Parker in Oakland CA. September 14th, 1944, to Earl Parker and Agnes Macedo-Parker. At age 11 she met Robert “Bobby” Behrendt while learning to roller skate at Alvarado Park Roller Skating Rink in Richmond CA. Their lifelong romance led them to be married on May 4, 1962, in Rodeo CA, and they were inseparable for 61 years. Sharon and Bobby had 2 children, Tod and Rodney, which led to 5 grandchildren, Courtney, Rachel, Dean, Danielle, and Tyler, and 4 great-grandchildren. Sharon was employed with Kihei Physicians/Maui HI, Oaks Park Roller Rink, Portland OR, and for 30 years she helped Bobby run their family business “Bob Behrendt's Floor-decor” in Maui HA. Hawaii is where Sharon and Bobby rekindled their passion for competitive roller skating and achieved multiple national titles and induction to the Roller Skating Hall of Fame in 2018. Sharon’s exuberant personality, passion for the sport, and her extensive knowledge allowed her to coach and produce many national champions as well. She was a devoted wife, mother, coach, and mentor and lived life to its fullest, and what made Sharon unique was her “cheerleader” style of support for everyone, and her friends became friends for life. Her greatest achievements were her 61 years of marriage, and her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Sharon was preceded in death by her parents, Earl and Agnes, and a sister Aileen Ivance. To know her is to know that just at the moment when someone said “she is gone” there are other eyes watching her coming and other voices ready to take her up with glad shouts of “here she comes!”
