East Wenatchee, WA

Sharon Elizabeth “Liz” Owyen, of East Wenatchee, WA, passed away on January 21, 2014, after a long battle with cancer. She was born in Spokane, WA on July 24, 1952, to Jean Boughton Berry and Albert Marks Berry. Liz graduated from Eastmont High School. She married Mark Owyen on January 21, 1992. Liz was a Teamsters Local Union Business Agent until her retirement in 2009. She was very passionate about fighting for the workers in her community. Prior to that, she had worked for Tree Top for 18 years, and Tektronix for eight years. Liz loved riding her Harley up and down the Coast. She also enjoyed crafts of all kind, from clay molding to wool felting. She was also an accomplished glass bead and jewelry maker. Liz was talented enough to have her beadwork featured in the Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center display, Tribute to an Artist with Cancer.

She is survived by her husband, Mark Owyen; her daughter, Dorri Kollmeyer; her brother, Douglas Berry; three sisters-in-law; four brothers-in-law; multiple nieces, and a nephew; her beloved Min Pins, Moon, Star, River and Comet; her parrot, Gypsy Rose; and her three best friends, Booby, Shelly Belly, and Kelly.

She touched so many lives that all who knew her will dearly miss her.
