Sharon Mcbride Hodson

February 17, 1936 — October 7, 2021

Sharon McBride Hodson passed away from acute myeloid leukemia on October 7, 2021. She was born in Fillmore, Utah, on February 17, 1936, to Charles L. and Dorothy S. McBride. Her ancestors were native of Scotland and Ireland, a heritage of which she’s proud.

Sharon has had the most amazing career in architectural design all over the country. She has designed over 11 million square feet of medical, hospital, and research space, as well as universities and public buildings. She was instrumental in orchestrating the design of the second Salt Palace arena, opened in 1969. She was a partner in the architectural firm of Edwardian and Daniels in Salt Lake City. Sharon capably built relationships professionally and was ever striving for perfection. She had many, many friends in California (Orange County was her epicenter), and all over the country.

She leaves behind three children that she has loved very much; Shari (Mitch) Gillins, Shawn (Leslie) Mulholland, and Roy (Covona) Olpin, who have all been kind caregivers. She also leaves behind beloved grandchildren; Adam, Tara, Brady, Cory, Sheena, and Mitch, many of whom also served graciously as caregivers. Sharon also had the joy and blessing of 13 beautiful great-grandchildren. All of these individuals were very important to her legacy!
