SHARON DEE CLEGG MUIR"Adieu! Adieu!
1950 ~ 2016
(Editor's Note: Again, we just received this information. Sharon passed on or about 3 April 2016)
thy plaintive anthem fades
Past the near meadows,
over the still stream,
Up the hill-side;
and now 'tis buried deep
In the next valley-glades:
Was it a vision, or a waking dream?
Fled is that music: ---
Do I wake or sleep?"
For her former students, every time they open a book, Keats' Nightingale returns on the wings of Sharon's enduring gift.
After a long illness that she faced with great courage, Sharon passed peacefully with family by her side bidding her adieu. She was born to Dee and Dorothy Clegg, attended Skyline High School, and received degrees in education from the University of Utah and Utah State. At the two universities she met a cohort of colleagues who became fast and life long friends. For over twenty years she taught at Muir, Franklin, Mountain View and Rowland Hall Elementary Schools and tutored until she no longer had the strength. Helping children discover the magic of reading brought her joy beyond measure. She loved taking walks with dear friends, sharing a good book, and shopping for shoes and eyeglasses that complimented her natural beauty.
Sharon and Prescott shared a wonderful life of 44 years filled with memories to assuage the pain of her loss. She is preceded in death by her parents Dorothy and Dee Clegg, aunt Arlene (Warren) and is survived by her husband Prescott; brothers Darrell (Shauna) and Ralph (Kristin) Clegg; daughter Adria (Geoff) Swindle; son Luke (Meridith); and five precious grandchildren Ella, Lilly, Luke, Evan and Ryan. Nonna, you're "a flowery tale more sweetly than our rhyme".
A celebration of Sharon's life will be held at the Salt Lake Country Club. Interment at Mt. Olivet Cemetery.
ROBIN WINBURN WOLL
(Editor's Note: This information just came to us by way of Laura Horiuchi, one of our classmates. Robin passed December of 2014)
We have lost the gracious, compassionate, and generous presence of Robin Winburn, who passed away peacefully on December 16, 2014.
Robin shared a long love affair with her husband Bennett Woll. She was deeply loved by her sister (Lauri Winburn Taylor), brother (David Winburn) and step-children (Ilan Woll and Dena (David) Woll Raminick and her grandsons Noah and Shelby). Her extended family, Robert and Monika Woll, Wendy Woll and Bill Binenstock, their daughter Sacha, Ron and Tammy Woll were very important to Robin and loved as well.
Robin was born in Salt Lake City, but left that world behind for San Francisco, a city she loved with all her heart. She may have left Salt Lake but her strong family ties to art, music and love of nature only grew stronger.
She graduated Magna cum Laude from the University of San Francisco College of Professional Studies in Human Relations and Organizational Behavior. She put this to good use with a job she loved-writing policy for the Levi Strauss Corporation. However, if you asked her occupation she would have replied, "Artist." Creating one-of-a-kind art books was a passion that never dwindled.
Robin married Bennett in 1984. In addition to finding her one true love, she embraced his passion for Judaism, as they studied with Reb Zalman. She went on to become a Bat Mitzvah and afterwards continued with Hebrew studies and Torah study.
Robin found joy in every aspect of her life. She loved to cook, especially for friends. She had a quick and ready wit and loved puns. She took great joy in beautifully organizing every compartment of her life. She experienced joy in music and art: the symphony and museums were a big part of that.
She loved learning new things, and a really good day involved new words and new concepts.
Her family and friends were the most important part of her life. Her strength, compassion and wisdom touched many people. Her bright energy, quick wit, huge smile and thoughtfully considered opinions were a gift to anyone who received them.
Services Fernwood Cemetery in Mill Valley.

Dane Olsen We're sorry to have to convey more sad news to you. Our friend, Dane Olsen, passed away April 19, 2012, from a blood clot.
It was unexpected. Dane's wife, Esther Makiko Olsen, unfortunately discovered him at home after not seeing him all day.
Dane didn't have a history of heart problems, but evidently his father and grandmother did and Makiko says the past few years have been difficult for Dane since the loss of his parents.
Our sincere condolences go out to his family.
