Sharon A. Dueysen, age 77, of Sandy Hook, Connecticut, passed away on Saturday, May 9th at Danbury Hospital from complications of the Covid-19 virus. She was the beloved wife of the late Robert A. Dueysen and loving mother to her son Bryan A. Dueysen. Born in Ventura, California on August 10th, 1942, Sharon was the daughter of Chester and Hazel Fording of Ojai, California.
Sharon attended Nordhoff Union High School and graduated with the class of 1960. This year would mark a 60th year reunion she shared with so many lifelong friends from the Ojai Valley. Sharon worked at the local Bank of America Ojai branch in the late 1960s and 70s as a New Account representative. It was there that she met Robert Dueysen, who had recently moved to the Ojai Valley from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Bob and Sharon dated for several years until their marriage in June of 1970. Sharon left the bank to assist Bob throughout the 1980s and 90s in running their Western Auto / True Value hardware store, which Bob had inherited from his parents Arnold and Twila Dueysen. After retiring from the hardware business, Sharon worked as receptionist at Ojai Eyes Optometry until her retirement in 2016.
In July of 2017, her son Bryan moved her to be closer to him in Connecticut where she became a resident of Masonicare Home & Health Care (now Newtown Rehabilitation & Health Care). Over the last three years Sharon enjoyed meeting the many loving nurses and aids who staffed the nursing home where she became a surrogate mother to many of the younger people who looked after her. Bryan and his partner, George Loscalzo were able to take Sharon on visits several weekends each year to their upstate New York weekend house in the Adirondacks where they would entertain her with activities such as trips into Vermont, fireside dinners, and annual Loscalzo family celebrations and holidays. Sharon especially loved sitting by the fire with her little Yorkshire terrier, Jingles, who had traveled with her from California and who was looked after by George and Bryan. Jingles would visit Sharon often at the nursing home up until the Covid-19 lockdown in early March.
Sharon will be deeply missed by all those whose lives she touched. Survivors include her son Bryan A. Dueysen and his partner George A. Loscalzo. Sharon was preceded in death by her husband Robert A. Dueysen and parents Chet and Hazel Fording.
A memorial in Sharon’s memory will be announced at a later date in Newtown, Connecticut, followed by one in her hometown of Ojai, California where she was loved by many lifelong friends. Sharon will be taken to her final resting place beside her husband Robert, with a Lutheran Funeral Service, at Adams Lutheran Church and Cemetery in Argyle, Wisconsin. Honan Funeral Home, 58 Main St., Newtown is entrusted with funeral arrangements. To leave an online condolence visit

I was a nurse at Masonicare/Newtown Rehab until 1/2020. Sharon was friendly and always smiling. I will remember Sharon fondly for the chats we had especially those about her favorite daytime soaps. Patty D.
