Sharon Kay Burnett

July 18, 1945 ~ September 11, 2023 (age 78) 78 Years Old


Sharon Burnett passed away September 11th, 2023, at her home after a battle with dementia. She was born to Ela and Leon Lane in Hinton, Oklahoma on July 18th, 1945; Her parents preceded her in death.

Sharon’s passions were reading, snow skiing, beach and cruise travel, and spending time at Grand Lake. In fact, it was her love of the water that enticed her to a job that allowed her to live on the water at Grand. She enjoyed the time there with her husband, Bruce, and the many friends they met during the almost thirty years they enjoyed lake time.

Her career included human resources at Leeway Motor freight in Oklahoma City, Hollytex Carpet Mills in Watonga, Cinch Connector in Vinita, 4 Star Trailers in El Reno, and retiring from St Anthony Hospital in Oklahoma City.  Her greatest career accomplishment was when she saw the need to educate women on the importance of dress and business etiquette, as well as offering a store to find career clothing in one location, when she opened the store Professional Image Tailored Womenswear, in Northwest Oklahoma City.

She was greatly loved by her husband Bruce Burnett who was her rock over the past 27 years and whom she loved very much. She is survived by one brother, Fred Lane, and her children; Shelly Soliz and her husband Gilbert, Shannon Legg and her husband Jerry, and Marcus Harris and his wife Angie; her step-children Andrea Kimzey and her husband Mike, and Brenton Burnett and wife Carla.

Numerous grandchildren and great-grands will have memories of their grandmother, they are: Victor Soliz, Dalton Soliz, Amanda Templeton, Cody Patton, Stephanie North, Patrick Welden, Tiffany Sharp, Reece Kimzey, Landry Kimzey, Bryson Burnett, Abby Burnett, and Camryn Burnett; Great-grands Cash, Crew, Ella, Cadee, Kali, Brantley, Karder, and baby Patton, who is due in December.

The family is thankful for Bristol Hospice for the wonderful care they provided during her final days, along with her daughter, Shannon. Also, special thanks to her caregivers Tamara and Meshlia who have taken care of her over the recent months. And to her friend and companion, Paula, who helped her enjoy life every day they were together.
