Sharon was born to the late Ambrose C. and Barbara E. (Topolski) Schmitz on Feb. 2, 1953 in Chicago, Ill. She attended St. Augustine Catholic School in Chicago until the eighth grade. She then moved to Coleman in 1967 and was a 1971 graduate of Coleman High School. She was a 4-H member and competed in horse shows and events in the northeastern Wisconsin area. Sharon moved many times and made a lot of friends along the way before settling in Medford and marrying David Roiger at Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Whittlesey on April 27, 1991. She was a member of Holy Rosary Catholic Church. Sharon loved being a mom and had a huge heart. She often opened her heart and home to anyone who needed some love or guidance. She was a social butterfly and a natural giver, and her favorite pastime was helping others. She also enjoyed traveling, music and dancing.
