Sharon Bretton Vuyuklakis, beloved wife of Konstantin passed away on April 24, 2020.
She was born in Brooklyn, NY to Leo and Evelyn Eisgrau. Sharon grew up with a brother Martin Eisgrau who is deceased.
After many years of living in Queens, she moved up to Woodstock, NY to the home she designed and built together with her husband Konstantin, and eventually retired there. It was her fairytale home. She always loved to see the animals and the birds right outside her window. But her absolute favorite animals were elephants and dogs. Her most favorite- her loving, loyal poodle Lucy.
Sharon is survived by her husband Konstantin - the love of her life, and her two children Tod and Tia, Tod’s children, Tia’s daughter, and her niece Robin.
She is predeceased by her daughter Jaime. May they together rest in peace.
Sharon was an artist, a painter, a designer and had a talent for all things fashion. She ran a few accessory companies at which her daughters Jaime and Tia worked with her. She loved to travel and explore, and found inspiration in everything. She always loved to laugh and nothing was better than to have a good giggle with her son Tod who she adored.
With childlike enthusiasm she loved ice cream, candy, sweets, snacks and most of all – her coffee!
There was always a little magic to Sharon. Like her favorite Disney character Dumbo, she was able to fly, and do things others couldn’t do as well. She soared as she designed, created new products, built businesses and painted a world for her family that was beautiful to live in.
Sharon was happiest when she was making others happy, which just came naturally. Her love was complete and unconditional.
She was special in that she would always be there to listen to others, she would always have sound opinions, and she would always give them with love. She was a magnet to people because they could see the good in her. It came out in her work and in her personal life and it drew people to her. Many of her friends were lifelong and feel their lives were richer for knowing her.
She taught her Granddaughter Kyra to be creative, to express herself and to give her best as she did with all of her children. They were very close and Kyra loved to hear her Grandmother’s excitement when she did something special. She relished in her family’s accomplishments and was very proud.
The dark night got a bright new star on April 24th. To those she loved- look towards the sky and shoot for the stars. That is where she will be watching with pride.
We love you mom. Light our way, and we will continue on in your memory.
With broken hearts, we will miss you.
