Sammons, Sharon K.
Jan 24, 1938 – May 9, 2020

Sharon (Shari) Sammons, 82, passed away peacefully at the La Vida memory facility in Mission Viejo, CA on May 9th  with family at her side.

She is survived by her husband of 54 years, Don Sammons; four children, Kari Johnston, William Sammons, Laura McIntosh, and David Sammons. They have ten grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren. Her brother, Robert Lohman, survives.

Shari was born in Springfield, MO to Dale and Anne Lohman. Her father was a noted country-western musician with many famous bands, and in her youth traveled extensively within the United States with her parents on band trips. She graduated from Kansas City High School and attended UCLA.

She was a homemaker, and after the children were adults worked as the assistant director of the South Shores Church Preschool in Dana Point, CA. Shari was active in her church, also in the Christian Women’s Club in San Juan Capistrano, and had a wide circle of friends.

She was an avid sports fan, especially baseball and the Angels. She and Don traveled widely over the years including summer Olympic Games in the U.S., Europe, Asia, and Australia, plus all major league ball parks.

Shari was a vibrant soul, loved by all, and will forever be missed.

Memorial services will be arranged for a later date.

  1. Shari was such an inspiration to me and encouraged me as I was going to college to earn my ECE Certificate. I loved working with her at S.S. Pre School… she always made me smile! I loved her sense of humor. RIP Shari  I will see you in Heaven 

    Shari was such a wonderful friend and “sister”. I will love her forever in my heart. We had children at the same time and they turned out to be friends to this day. Shari I will miss you and I love you.
    We knew what the other one was thinking. Laughed until we cried. We worked together at South Shores Christian Preschool and we worked together at Christian Woman’s club, and we worked together raising our families. We traveled and no mater what we did, we laughed and cried and got through it together. Hold a place for me and I will see you there.
