In memory of
Sharon Demitruk Jun. 25, 1955 - Oct. 08, 2016 SOUTH BEND - Sharon Jean Demitruk (Derrick) passed away Saturday, October, 8, 2016 surrounded by her loved ones. She was born June 25, 1955 in Waukegan, Illinois to Jim Derrick and Jean (Rules) Derrick. She was a graduate of Miami Beach High School, class of 1973. On September 10, 1977 Sharon married The Man of her Dreams , Ricky D. Together they celebrated 39 wonderful years of marriage and had two amazing sons, Brandon (Jamie) and Kyle which were Sharon's pride and joy. Sharon also loved her two grandchildren Lucas and Michelle dearly. They were the light of her life and she loved sharing their stories to all of their friends. Sharon enjoyed many things in life; but vacationing in Ludington, Michigan, reading a book in the boat while Rick fished, and watching the Chicago Cubs and Green Bay Packers were tops on her list. She also never met a stranger, as she could carry on a conversation with anyone. Sharon will be missed by many friends that she treated as family over the years. Sharon was preceded in death by her father Jim Derrick, and father-in-law John (George) Demitruk. She is survived by her loving husband Richard (Rick); sons, Brandon (Jamie) and Kyle of South Bend; grandson Lucas; granddaughter, Michelle; brother, Brian Derrick of Florida; sister Jami Warfel of New Carlisle; mother, Jean Derrick of Port St. Lucie; and mother-in-law, Marilyn Demitruk of South Bend.
