Sharon Letha Enge passed away April 14, 2022, in Tehachapi, California. She was born January 29, 1932, to Alfred and Letha Kaiser in Portland, Oregon. She spent most of her formative years growing up in the Northern Oregon area with her brothers, Richard and Neil, and sister, Linda, including the Oregon coastal community of Rockaway which she used to talk about fondly.
The Kaiser family moved often and ultimately settled in Southern California in the late 1940's moving to Oxnard, California. She attended and graduated from Oxnard High School in 1951. While in High School she met, and later married, a handsome devil named Tarald Joseph Enge. Together they brought into the world and raised their five children in Oxnard, California and Tehachapi, California.
She was an excellent Homemaker/Mother and worked as an Office Secretary. She was very proud of her typing skills and shorthand. She worked for many years in civil service and enjoyed her subsequent retirement. She had recently moved back to Oregon in 2012, and enjoyed being there very much, however, health issues compelled her to move back to Tehachapi to be closer to her family there.
