Sharon Elizabeth Swick, age 62, beloved partner, sister, aunt, and friend passed peacefully on July 8, 2020 in Manhattan, New York. Sharon was born in New York, New York on August 14, 1957 to Richard and Jeanette. She was raised on Long Island with her “little” brother, Andy, and gained a sister in-law Kelli, with whom she grew very close to. She met her partner Gino over 20 years ago, with whom she shared many wonderful times together. Sharon’s incredible friends were always there for her and she in return. Sharon was a New Yorker at heart and loved living in the city. She was a dedicated Yankees fan, especially Derek Jeter. Sharon had a heart of gold and spent most of her life creating lasting memories with her three nieces who meant the world to her. She was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 45 and was in remission for 17 years before the cancer returned. Sharon’s strength and unwillingness to give up the fight was an inspiration to all who were lucky enough to have met her. Her parents, Richard and Jeanette preceded her in death. She is survived by her partner Gino, brother Andy (sister-in-law Kelli), her nieces Manya, Shayna and Rai and her furry niece and nephews, Bella, Russell, Johnny, and Frankie.
