WATERVILLE -- Sharon A. Greene, 65, died Saturday, Nov. 17, 2012, at Inland Hospital in Waterville, after a long illness.

She was born on March 18, 1947, in Waterville, the daughter of Duane and Marie A. (Linteau) Bilslend.

She enjoyed crocheting beautiful things, sewing, praying with friends, listening to the loons at the lake and reading, especially about Native American cultures. Sharon was a very giving, loving, forgiving person.

The family would like to express their thanks to Dr. Thompson, Dr. Stapley, and all the nurses in the intensive care unit and on the medical-surgical floor at Inland Hospital, for their loving care and support.

A graveside service will be held at a later date at the convenience of the family.

In lieu of flowers, friends wishing may make donations in Sharon's memory to the Maine Breast Cancer Coalition, 499 Broadway, PMB 362, Bangor, ME 04401-3460.
