Sharon Wixo

October 12, 1943 — June 18, 2021

Sharon Marie Wixo, 77, peacefully passed away June 18, 2021, at Eventide Care Center in Moorhead, MN. She was born on October 12, 1943, to Marie and Otto Sveom, and lived on a farm outside of Kent, MN, until her dad passed away when she was six. After moving to Wahpeton, ND, she graduated from Wahpeton High School in 1961 and studied at NDSCS for one year. Sharon worked at Stoudt Motors and First National Bank in Wahpeton.

In 1970, she married H. Elroy Wixo. They made their home in Leonard, ND, and welcomed four children. They moved to Wahpeton in 1992 where she had a house cleaning business and worked at Red River Human Services for eight years beginning in 2003. She moved to Twin Town Villa in 2017.

Sharon was a wonderful, nurturing woman and enjoyed the simple things in life, like coffee time with family and friends. She will be missed most by her children and grandchildren; Son Paul (wife Lisa, children Brandon and Brooke), son Troy (wife KelLee, children Zayne, Kennedey, and Ty), son Corey (wife Nikki, children Paige and Parker), and daughter Kayla (children Alexis and Kayleigh). Spending quality time with family and friends meant the most to Sharon and she even beat cancer to make more memories with those she loved.

She is now reunited with her parents, her sister Linda, and many other relatives.

Visitation will be held on Wednesday, June 23, 2021, from 10:00 am to 11:00 am, followed by her funeral service at 11:00 am at Bethel Lutheran Church in Wahpeton.  A live stream of her service will be available on the funeral home's website.  A burial will be held for immediate family at Emmanuel Lutheran Cemetery in Abercrombie, ND. Arrangements have been entrusted to Vertin-Munson Funeral Home.
