    Sharon Hiett
    Sharon R. Hiett age 74 of York, died Thursday, Sept. 28, 2017 in York surrounded by her family after a courageous battle with cancer.

    She was born Aug. 17, 1943 in Holdrege to Claude E. and Willette (Stoll) Lansden. Sharon grew up in Fairmont where she attended Fairmont High School. She was married to Harold Hiett on Dec. 5, 1961. They were blessed with six children. Sharon was baptized at the First Christian Church in York.

Later she furthered her education and received her Licensed Practical Nursing Degree from Southeast Community College. She worked at Midwest Covenant Home, York General Hearthstone, and lastly at the Nebraska Women’s Correction Facility until her retirement in June 2007. She loved mountains, quilting, crocheting, slot machines but most of all family holidays, lake weekends, pumpkin patch parties, Easter Piñatas, and monthly birthday parties.
