Sharon “Sheri” Jones Knutson, 67, of Laurel, MT went to be with her Lord and Savior on February 16, 2019 peacefully in her sleep at home of natural causes. She was a homemaker, CEO of the Knutson household and love of our lives.
The most important thing to her was family. She married her high school sweetheart, Leonard (Len), at 17 yrs. old and they recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in September, 2018. Together they have 3 children: Kristin, Trent and Kimberly of whom she was incredibly proud and called “the heartbeats of my life.” Her grandchildren and great grandchildren gave her immense joy, fun and love. She was an avid reader, music lover, political aficionado, writer and a connoisseur of the Bible. She was intensely witty and could tell a story better than most authors.
She wished to be remembered as follows: “I want people to know my first love was the Father, the second your Dad, the third you three kids/grandkids…my grandchildren some of the brightest stars in my universe. And I hope that at some point for a few minutes I was able to make people forget their hurts, stresses, and problems and laugh with me as we remembered the silly and goofy things we all eventually did and someone was always there to witness and tell the rest of the family/friends about…lol”
She is survived by her cherished husband Len, children Kristin Mueller (Gary) of Laurel, MT, Trent Knutson of Anchorage, AK and Kimberly Knutson of Phoenix, AZ; brother Bill Jones (Jennifer); sister Pam Krische (Jim); grandchildren Jordan Mueller, Ryan Mueller, Laura Holloway (Adam), Chris Mueller (Khira); great grandchildren Madeline Holloway, Harvey Holloway, Ella Mueller. She was a beloved daughter-in-law, sister-in-law, aunt and relative to numerous loved ones. She is preceded in death by her mother Frances Knight Jones; father William Jones Sr. (Janet).
A celebration of life service will be held Saturday Feb. 23, 2019 at New Life Foursquare Ministries at 201 1st Ave in Laurel at 1:00 pm. To honor her, she requested in lieu of flowers to have donations sent to New Life School of Light at New Life Foursquare Ministries in Laurel.
