Sharon J. (Lugli) OreskovichJuly 14, 1944 ~ May 30, 2017 (age 72)
Sharon Josephine Oreskovich, age 72 of Embarrass, died peacefully in her sleep on May 30, 2017 at Thedacare Medical Center in Appleton, after a brief struggle with cancer. She passed as she lived life, on her own terms.
Sharon was born on July 14, 1944 in Copper Cliff, Ontario to the late Guerrino and Mary (Frattini) Lugli, who emigrated from Italy. She grew up with a deep love of family along with her brother David, her late sister Reta, and late brother Fred. Sharon graduated from high school and went on to earn her degree in nursing. While in college, she became an accomplished pianist and enjoyed teaching. After living the southern California lifestyle for a while, she moved back to Canada where she worked at the Copper Cliff Hospital. Sharon spent many of her 72 years caring for others. She had a chance encounter in 1966 with a hockey jock, Mathew J Oreskovich, whom she fell in love with while going to his hockey games. They were married in 1968 and moved to Clintonville in 1970 where Mathew became the administrator of Pine Manor and she practiced caregiving to the elderly as a R.N. for 20 years. They quickly started a family thereafter, with Sharon focused on all the hard work as evidenced by her giving birth to four children in four years and continuing to work professionally while also teaching her kids until they went to kindergarden. When Mathew decided to open his own restaurant in 1991, Sharon partnered with him by providing the office manager and cleaning duties for over 20 years. Most recently, she received the 2015 Forgotten Man award for all the service she provided to others throughout the year. Sharon was also an avid curler and a member of the Clintonville Curling Club. She, along with husband Mathew, LaVerne Sell & the late Lyle Gluth, won the 1988 Green Bay Summer Bonspiel by defeating the defending national champions. Sharon was a member of St. Rose Catholic Church in Clintonville where she served as a lay person and also served as a scout den mother. A vivacious reader and avid gardener, Sharon would easily finish a thick paperback or ebook in a day or two. She loved fiction, especially crime novels and mysteries, which is where she learned how to drop the occasional colorful language. In her prime, her rose and flower gardens were the standard by which others were compared which is why the family greatly appreciates all the volunteers that recently weeded and planted her gardens bringing them back to life!
Sharon is survived by her husband, Mathew; sons Steve (Pia), Matt (Amber) and Andy (Allison); grandchildren Erica, Max, Aaron, Emma, Sabastian, and David; her brother David (AJ); and numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives, and close friends.
Sharon was preceded in death by her parents, an infant daughter Susan, brother Fred, and sister Reta (Gino).

Jack Mullarkey & Deacon Lincoln Wood officiating. Friends may call at the church from 9 AM until the time of the service.
