March 1, 2024 | 5 comments

Sharon Elizabeth Spaulding, 76, of Onalaska, WI, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, February 28, 2024, at Bluffview Memory Care in Holmen, WI after a long illness.

She was born on November 14, 1947, to William and Charlotte (Larson) Hauser. She was the first of eight children. She grew up on the Hauser farm in Onalaska, WI. She attended Holmen High School and later attended Western Technical College for bookkeeping. Her love of numbers was an integral part of every job she ever had.

She married Dan Spaulding on December 19, 1975, in an intimate ceremony in Janesville, WI. A few months later they were blessed with their only child, Elizabeth. Together, Dan and Sharon traveled all over the US and Canada (in the semi and for leisure) taking in the many sites and enjoying time together and with their friends from all over North America. Sharon also enjoyed many movie nights and dinners over the years with her daughter. In her spare time Sharon enjoyed watching old westerns, tending to her flowers, reading, and cooking. Her homemade chicken noodle soup was a favorite of her husband and daughter.

She is survived by her husband Dan, her daughter Elizabeth, and her ever faithful ginger cat, Punkin. She is also survived by her four brothers, two sisters, and many nieces and nephews.

Thank you to Bluffview Memory Care and St. Croix Hospice. They were both a constant support during this time.

In lieu of flowers please donate to your local animal shelter. Sharon would have saved all shelter dogs and cats if she could have.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Wednesday, March 13th at the Holmen American Legion, 419 1st Ave W, Holmen, WI, from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm.

    I am so sorry for your families loss. She was such a nice person. She will be missed by many. I thoughts and prayers are with you.

    My cousin Sharon was a great person and we grew closer the more time we were able to spend together and found that we had in common that we even thought! We had many great times at the farm when we were younger, spent some time together in Sheboygan and then had a lot of time at the “Great Circus Parade” in Milwaukee. I am so sorry for what you had to go through and feel that you have now found peace. I also know that with your leaving, your family has a large hole in their heart and that they miss you so much, as do I. I am so sorry that they had to loose you twice. Miss you Sharon, Love you, Judy

    Dan and Liz and the Hauser family…I worked with Sharon at Ace hardware in Onalaska. She was always professional in her job as bookkeeper. We all loved working together and kept the days interesting with lots of humor. I tried to find Sharon a few months back to no avail. I was shocked to see her picture in the obituary. Remember the good times Dan and Liz and Kathy. Hugs to you all. I will try to attend the celebration.

      I am sorry to hear about Sharon’s passing. My memory of Sharon is a bright, happy and funny person. My sympathies to all those that loved her.

      (I wish I was able to attend the Celebration of Life as I was out of town when I heard of Sharon’s passing.)
