Shari Storm Rollin: 1950-2017

Aug 16, 2017

Shari Storm Rollin passed quietly in her sleep on July 15. Shari was born May 20, 1950, in Berkeley, California, and grew up in her family's home in Lake Tahoe, Nevada.

As a teenager, Shari lived in New Delhi, India, where she had the opportunity to experience a different culture and develop her strong sense of independence.

Shari returned to the United States to finish her formal education. She received her degree in dendrology from Columbia College in California.

Shari owned and operated her own press clipping service in Reno, Nevada. She was actively involved in the business community.

In 1985, Shari moved to Edmonds to be closer to her family. Shortly after, she joined the staff of the Edmonds Library. Her service, at the library, continued for 27 years, until she retired due to illness.

During Shari's tenure at the library, she developed lasting relationships with staff and patrons alike, becoming an ardent supporter of the Friends of the Edmonds Library.

Shari was, and still is, a unique personality whose quick wit and determined independence embodies her individualism. She will be missed by many. Shari is survived by her brother Randy and sister in-law Erin.

A hosted celebration of her life will be held 5 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 31, at Bistro 76 in the Perrinville neighborhood of Edmonds.
