Sharon Elizabeth Cox Lang, 83, a resident of Gardnerville, Nev., for the past five years and former resident of South Lake Tahoe for 37 years, passed away March 2, 2006.

Sharon was born July 14, 1922, in Spirit Lake, Idaho, to Elva Bowers and Dale William Cox. She graduated from Mills College in Oakland, Calif., in 1943 with a degree in psychology and married Peter Wall Lang April 16, 1946, in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Sharon was a real estate broker and she and her husband owned Lang Realty & Rentals in South Lake Tahoe for more than 20 years. She was a superb bridge player and played in South Lake Tahoe several times a week for many years and recently in Gardnerville.

She was a member of Barton Hospital Auxiliary and South Lake Tahoe Cancer League and was one of the first members of the South Lake Tahoe Women’s League.

She was active in the community and enjoyed snowmobiling, jeeping, outdoor activities and traveling with her husband and family. An avid reader, she always had a book in her hand.

She will be deeply missed by all whose lives she touched with her compassion, warmth and love.

She is survived by son and daughter-in-law, Stephen W. and Joyce Lang; son, Robert W. Lang; and daughter, Nancy Lang, all of Gardnerville; granddaughters, Kathleen, and her husband, Arno Lambert, of San Francisco, Calif., and Corinne and her fiancé, Ryan O’Donnell, of Scottsdale, Ariz.; brother, Dale William Cox, and his wife, Patricia, of Palos Verdes Estates, Calif.; brother-in-law, David Lang, and his wife, Betty Jane, of Corona del Mar, Calif.; several nephews and a niece.
