Obituary for Paulette Diane Sharp (Grant)

Paulette lost her battle with cancer on July 17, 2018 surrounded by loved ones. She was born in Ione, WA on January 11, 1954 to Donald and Jean Haugen, the middle child between brother Jim and sister Barb. She grew up in Metaline Falls, graduating from Selkirk High School in 1972. She spent several years in Anchorage, AK where she gave birth to her daughter, Amber Pichette in 1977. They moved back to the Metaline area where she began her 31 year career in Human Resources at Seattle City Light Boundary Dam, retiring in 2010. She spent 18 happy years with her partner, Bill Grant, many in Metaline before they moved to the Spokane Valley in 2010 to be close to their grandson, Liam Thurman, whom she absolutely adored.

Paulette loved every dog she met, was a meticulous and organized keeper of the household, enjoyed yard sales and embraced the many friendships she had. She was a kind, considerate and warm gal who loved her family and would bend over backwards to help when needed. She especially enjoyed spending time with Liam at the Northwest Train Modelers. She will be greatly missed.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Donald and Jean Haugen, brother Jim Haugen, stepdaughters Kim Grant Rice and Katherine Grant Maupin. She is survived by her partner, Bill Grant of Spokane Valley, her daughter Amber Pichette (Ben Thurman) and grandson Liam Thurman of Spokane Valley, stepson Russ (Michelle) Grant of Ione, grandchildren Kayla Zerck, Trevor and Levi Grant, Mykenzie Maupin, sister Barbara (Bruce) Feuerhammer of Spokane, nieces Emily (Shane) Rawley of Spokane and Mary (Jesse) Cahill of Bonney Lake, WA, cousins in North Dakota, Colorado and Oregon and many wonderful friends. The family would like to extend heartfelt thanks to Joan Dawson for her invaluable help the last few months.

No service will be held per her request, however, a celebration of life will occur at a later date. Memorial donations in her name can be made to the Spokane Humane Society at
