SHARI BOSLER April 21, 2018
Shari Bosler, 73, died peacefully in Fort Collins, Colorado on April 21, 2018 after a lengthy battle with stomach cancer. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, June 2nd at 2 p.m. at Christ United Methodist Church in Fort Collins, Colorado.
Shari was raised in Columbus, Ohio and graduated from Miami University in Ohio with a Bachelor’s in Education. She impacted students through her teaching in Virginia, New Mexico, and Vienna, Austria. In addition to teaching, volunteering was an important part of Shari’s life. She was an active member of the UN Women’s Guild and often helped at the American International School in Vienna, Austria. While Shari was undergoing her own treatment for cancer, she continued to volunteer for the UC Health Cancer Center, Friends of the Library and Zach Elementary School.
Shari’s biggest legacy is her love for family and friends. She married her beloved husband Gene in 1966. Over the next 52 years, they built a life together in Charlottesville, Virginia, Los Alamos, New Mexico, Vienna, Austria and Fort Collins, Colorado. Their love is one that is forever! Her contagious energy, vibrant smile and sense of hospitality brought many friends into her life. She prided herself on selfless actions and never turned away a person in need…or a guest for dinner.
Shari is survived by her loving husband Gene, her daughters Jennifer Bosler and Lara (Brent) Bristol, son Peter (Natalie) Bosler, and four grandchildren (Tahlea and Asher Bosler and David and Ellie Bristol). She is also survived by her sister Coleen (Jay) Bradfield and sister-in-law Ann (Bill) Eichhorn. Shari was loved by many and is also survived by numerous close friends all around the world who were considered extended family.
In lieu of flowers, Shari requested that memorials be sent to McCurdy Ministries Community Center, 362A S. McCurdy Road, Espanola, NM 87532. Shari taught at McCurdy for almost ten years and continued to support McCurdy by speaking about the difference McCurdy made as a school and will continue to make as a community center.
