Sharon Hallett Carter passed away Wednesday, February 7th 2018 after a courageous battle with cancer. Her last breaths were witnessed by her daughters and husband as they held her hands after listening to her favorite song and hearing her sister say, “See you later.” She left the world peacefully, held in loving arms. She is survived by loving husband Dean Carter of Rocky Hill, CT; devoted daughters Jaime Carter Green (Jonathan) of Austin, TX, and Kimberly Carter of Newington, CT; grandchildren Jackson and Jaiden Green; loyal sister Gale Hallett Deming (Donald) of Windsor, CT and brother Kenneth (Ken) Hallett of Ithaca, NY. Sharon was born on a Wednesday, April 30th 1947 to the late Russell (Russ) Hallett and Shirley Purnell Hallett of Windsor, CT. She spent her childhood in Windsor being a tomboy, playing sports and climbing trees to escape her little sister. She attended UCONN before going to work at Aetna in Hartford in 1967. In early 1977 she met Dean in the parking lot of their apartment building when he helped her carry her laundry. They married soon after in the summer of ‘77 beginning a marriage that would span 40 years and be defined by shared humor and loyalty. Out of that marriage came two daughters who were her pride and her comfort. After retiring from Aetna in 2001, Sharon got bored and so began her next chapter working at the Bloomfield Board of Ed. From Aetna to the Bloomfield B.O.E. to even the dentist office and deli counter at her local grocery store, Sharon made friends and left an impression with her wickedly quick wit and loud, joyfully infectious laugh. Although a career driven woman with a strong work ethic who “failed” at retirement so completely that she began a second career, Sharon’s focus in life was her family. She enjoyed a close friendship with her mother and sister and later with her daughters. She took an avid interest in the wellbeing and activities of her grandchildren. Above all, Sharon took care of her family, even through her multiple battles with cancer. She was more than a daughter, sister, wife, and mother - she was a best friend whose courage and strength inspired, whose calm practicality soothed and reassured, and whose quick humor delighted and surprised all who were privileged to know and love her. The family would like to acknowledge with gratitude the excellent work done by the Harry Gray Cancer Center, Dr. Peter Schauer and Christine Calheno during Sharon’s battles, and Hartford Healthcare at Home and in particular Jodi Beaulieu and Maria Matos for all of their support and assistance during Sharon’s in making Sharon’s final weeks as comfortable as possible. A memorial service will be held for Sharon on Saturday, February 17th at the Carmon Poquonock Funeral Home at 1816 Poquonock Ave., Windsor CT 06095. Visiting hours will be from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM with service to follow directly at 2:30 PM. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to Hartford Healthcare at Home (https://hartfordhealthcare.org/donate/donate-now) in honor of Sharon.
