WINTERPORT — Sharon “Auntie” Morrill LaSota, 71, passed away peacefully Sept. 19, 2022, at her sister Barbie’s home in Winterport. She was born Dec. 2, 1950, in Bangor, the daughter of Nancy Newcomb Morrill.

Sharon worked in the restaurant industry as a waitress for many years, including The Homestead Restaurant, The Pit Stop, Jordan’s and Chocolate Grill. Her most treasured time was when she worked with her mother and sister running Prout’s Dog House in Hampden.

Sharon went on to meet her husband Steve while working at Jordan’s. They married in 2001. Steve predeceased her in 2008. She most recently worked in the cafeteria at EMMC.

Auntie became involved in the Monroe Rebekahs of Maine Lodge 92, where she became president in 2017. She was also an associate member of the Stonington Lodge 16. One of her favorite trips with the lodge was wreath-laying at the tomb on the unknown soldiers in Washington, D.C. Her new favorite pastime was spending a month at Camp Neofa in Montville as the Arts and Crafts director, which was right up her alley.

Sharon is survived by her sister Barbie Doyon and special brother-in-law Roger of Winterport, niece Stacy and husband Fred Brown of Winterport, and nephew Joey Doyon and wife Holly of Frankfort. Auntie is survived by her special “boys,” nephews Trey Brown and significant other Riley Martin, Grayson and Jacoby Cox, and Cole and Kayne Doyon, as well as special friends Kenny Treadwell, Diane Young, Joyce Young, Muriel Elkins, and the Doyon and Brown families.

The family would like to thank everyone with their help the last few weeks with Auntie so she was able to stay at home.

For those wishing to make a donation in Sharon’s memory, please consider Camp Neofa so a child who may not be able to afford camp can attend.

A celebration of Auntie’s life will be held Sunday, Sept. 25, at 2 p.m. at Winterport Riverside Riders Snowmobile Club, Pine View Drive, Winterport.
