Sharon Nicholas Green entered into rest in Monterey, California, on September 1st, 2021, following a short and valiant fight against cancer. She knew how much she was loved, as she was surrounded by her three children.
Sharon was born October 2nd, 1942, in Los Angeles, California. She was raised in San Leandro Valley with her two brothers and sister. She graduated from San Leandro High School in 1960. She then went on to attend University of the Pacific, Monterey Peninsula College, and Washington State University, where she received her Bachelor’s Degree in Education. She pursued teaching in southern California. She was an avid snow skier and joined a local ski club. This is where she met Rod Green and they married in 1965. Rod served in the Air Force and was deployed to Europe. This is where they welcomed their first son, William, in Germany. After a few years in Europe, they returned to the Los Angeles area. This is where they welcomed their second son, Jeffrey. Upon leaving the service, Rod took a job in Northern California and this is where they welcomed their daughter, Jennifer.
Sharon pursued her passion for Real Estate in the early 70’s. She attended several Real Estate classes at Shasta College in Redding. She was a substitute teacher in Shasta County and continued her passion for Real Estate and attained her license. She went on to start her career as a Real Estate agent at Coldwell Banker First Shasta Realty. She joined the Shasta Association of Realtors in 1977, and served on the Scholarship, Grievance, Pro Standards, Program, Finance, and Legislative Committees. She was elected to the position of President of the Association and led the membership through the uncertainty of Y2K. She also was a California Association Director, representing private property rights in the north state. She continued to excel as she moved on to Coldwell Banker C & C Properties and at this office she retired at the top of her game. She loved to mentor many associates and those getting into the industry.
Sharon enjoyed the outdoors with her family. They spent a lot of time snow skiing, water skiing and camping. She also loved tennis, reading, painting, needle point, golf, traveling and a good meal. She always had a kind heart and opened her home to many people who needed a hand up.
Sharon went back to her roots and her love of the ocean, and had two residences in California. She had one in Redding and one in Pacific Grove. She enjoyed getting out of the heat and spent a couple weeks a month in both places. Her love of the ocean and cooler climate finally won out, and she sold her residence in Redding a few years ago and moved to Pebble Beach full time. She enjoyed golfing, painting and socializing. She volunteered often and one of her favorite places to volunteer was the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
Sharon is survived by her partner, Steve Adams, son Bill and wife Tammie, son Jeff and partner Tina Fryer, daughter Jennifer and husband Nick Vilvandre, granddaughter Lindsey Green and grandson Billy Green, sister Leslie Ford, brother Rob Goldring and several nieces and nephews.
Sharon was preceded in death by her mother Dorothy Goldring, her father John Goldring, her mother Shirley Goldring and her brother Johnny Goldring.
