Sharon Star Rainbow, was born on June 12th, 1973 and went to her sacred home in Heaven on Sunday, April 21, 2024. She passed away at St. Aloysius Hospital in Harvey, ND at the age of 50.

Sharon Star was the daughter of Norma (Lambert) and Julius Rainbow Sr. She was raised in the Crowhill area of the Spirit Lake Nation. She attended several different schools including the School for the Deaf in Devils Lake, School for the Blind in Grand Forks and the State Developmental School in Grafton but none seemed to fit her needs. She then stayed at home until she was 19 and became a resident of the Jackson Home in Harvey ND. This was the perfect fit. She was a resident there for 27 years.

Sharon's job was to shred paper. She loved listening to music, especially Pow-Wow music and anything that was up beat. She loved her Koosh balls, painting and was thrilled to go for rides around the area with the Jackson staff. Sharon loved the staff, all of them so much. As Sharon's family we are very thankful for them and the loving care they gave her through the years.

Sharon is survived by her precious family. Her sisters Janice Cavanaugh (Vince), Margrette Cavanaugh, Connie Rainbow (Ron), Tammy Littlewind (Richard) and Angel Bergrud (Daryle); godparents Linda Lawrence and Dennis Corbine; many dear nieces, nephews and cousins.

She was preceded in death by her parents Norma and Julius, maternal grandparents Grace (Young) and Charles Lambert, paternal grandparents Carrie (White) and Bernard Rainbow.

Pallbearers will be: Dane Cavanaugh, Jeremy Rainbow Sr., Addison Lenoir, Mitchel Lenoir, Bernard Rainbow, Russell Cavanaugh and Myron Lambert Jr.

Honorary Bearers will be her nieces: Mary Cavanaugh, Michelle Cavanaugh, Katlyn Cavanaugh, Norma Robertson, Markie Robertson, Julie McKay, Gwyn McKay, Jolene Bergrud, Jill Bergrud, Ashley Lenoir, Cher Rainbow, Brittney Rainbow Littlewind, Naomi Littlewind, Ivy Redman, Cassandra Cloud, Kristie Thompson (Kojak), Jonelle Charboneau, Rose Lenoir (Jerry), Karen Lambert, Kaylean Lambert, Ricky Rainbow, Autumn Rainbow.
