Sharmie Fraser

Sharmalee Marie “Sharmie” Fraser of Hermiston passed away on June 2, 2020 at her home at the age of 49.

She was born on Dec. 11, 1970 to the late Willburn C. Clark and Treva Sauers Clark.

She graduated high school in 1989 and went on to start a family in 1992. Sharmie did daycare for many years while raising her sons, watching after the children of her closest friends and neighbors. Later she would go on to deliver mail for USPS, work for the Army depot dismantling weapons until its deconstruction, become a prison guard at Two Rivers correction facility, and hold a supervisor position at Lamb Weston. She was a workaholic, both on and off the job, always busying herself with many home renovation projects.

She loved camping and fishing with her family and friends. She loved all members of her family, always staying up to date on the happenings with her many cousins and showing love and support at family gatherings of all kinds. She was an avid dog lover and owner, and cared greatly for her dog Samson, who reflected her happy loving personality.

She is survived by her three sons, Zachary, Tanner and Gunnar; her mother, Treva; her brother, Chuck; and her best friend and dog, Samson.

She was preceded in death by her father, Willburn C. Clark and brother, Willburn Clyde Clark II.

A celebration of life will be scheduled next year in Hermiston on the anniversary of her passing.
