Longtime Sonora resident Patti Lynn (VonStetten) Sharrard died Feb. 25 at her home surrounded by her family. She was 54.

She enjoyed crocheting, sewing, shopping at secondhand stores, playing bingo and helped raise her two granddaughters.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Carol Nute, of Columbia; Juanita and Harold Dutra, of Standard; and great-granny, Daisy Duarte, of Columbia.

She is survived by her sisters, Kim Davis, of Sonora, Tamera Nute, of Texas, and Eileen, Hagen, of Texas; her brothers, Donald Nute, of Columbia, and Michael Nute, of Sonora; aunt Janet Carrera, of Soulsbyville, and other aunts and uncles of Tuolumne County; her daughters, Andrea (Gosney) Kulp, of Jamestown, Isabella, of Sonora; her sons, Sean Starett, of Willow Springs, Anthony VonStetten, of Sonora, Thomas VonStetten, of Sonora, and Tristan and Gregory, of Sonora; and two granddaughters, Khloe Kulp, of Jamestown, and Zoey Kulp, of Jamestown.

There will be a celebration of life for Patti at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 30, at the Willow Springs Clubhouse.
