The beloved Sharron K. (Oliver) Magnuson, 73 years of age, of Beatrice, formerly of Lincoln, Nebraska, passed away Wednesday, March 4, 2020 at Beatrice Community Hospital and Health Center in Beatrice after a courageous battle with cancer. Sharron entered this world on March 20, 1946 in Lincoln to Elmer and June (Shasteen) Oliver and was a graduate of Lincoln Southeast High School in Lincoln. She proudly devoted her career of 48 years to the Nebraska Department of Roads. On November 29, 1991, Sharron and Edwin “Ed” Magnuson married in Lincoln and celebrated 28 wonderful years of marriage together.

Sharron touched the lives of all those who were blessed to know her. Her fiery personality, combined with her zest for life and the deep love she shared with her husband Ed and her family made a love for her contagious. The family would like to take this time to thank her physicians, hospital staff and most especially her visiting nurses, hospice care staff and her bath aide for loving her and caring for her with great dignity and respect; your actions provided Sharron, and  her family much peace.
