Sharon Maria White Eagle "Wawokiya Wakan Win" (Helps the Elders Woman) was born January 16, 1939 at Cheyenne Agency, South Dakota to Charles White Eagle and Katherine Pretty Bear. She entered the spirit world August 13, 2013 at the I.H.S. Hospital in Eagle Butte, South Dakota.

Sharon grew up and attended school at Cheyenne Agency. She married Jimmy Handboy and to this union two daughters were born, Lisa Handboy Parish and Rita Handboy.

Sharon was an elderly caregiver for many years in Lemmon, Isabel, Eagle Butte and Pierre. She didn't do it to just make a living, she did it because she loved helping those who could not care for themselves. She had a big heart and would offer whatever she had to others.

In her spare time Sharon loved to sew, play cards and solve crossword puzzles. She will be dearly missed by all those who knew and loved her.

Those left to mourn her passing are her daughters, Lisa Handboy Parish of Suffolk, Virginia and her children, Christina Henry and Denise Richard and Rita Handboy of Rapid City, SD and her children Brandon Handboy, Jonathan Wilkins and Sheldon T. Wilkins; her only surviving sibling, Alma Tucker of Nebraska along with numerous nephews and nieces and cousins too numerous to list.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Ella Pretty Bear White Eagle and Charles White Eagle; her brothers, George, Vincent, Raymond, Darrell, Wayne and Maynard and her sister Cora.
