Sharon (Ott) Robles

December 31, 1950 ‒ October 13, 2020

Delaware, Ohio

Sharon A. (Ott) Robles, 69, of Delaware passed away unexpectedly Tuesday afternoon, October 13, 2020.

She was born December 31, 1950 in Columbus to the late Elvin “Al” Ott and Lillian (Chadwick) Ott and later graduated from Rutherford B. Hayes High School.

Sharon enjoyed animals, especially her feline companion Rosa and other stray cats.

Left to cherish her memory is her sister, Sue (Michael) Roesch of Delaware; brothers, William (Sue) Chadwick of Galloway and Robert (Mandy) Chadwick of Blacklick; 2 nephews, cousins and friends including close friends, Rick and Joyce Caldwell, Jim Heffner, Laura Hill, and Anita Barney.

The family will receive friends on Sunday, October 18, 2020 from 4 – 6 pm at the Snyder-Rodman Funeral Center, 101 Valleyside Drive at W. William Street, Delaware. Committal services will be at 11:00 am Monday, October 19, 2020 in the mausoleum chapel at Sunset Cemetery, 6959 W. Broad Street, Galloway, OH 43119 with Pastor John Foster officiating.

The death certificate will say Sharon died of a heart attack. In reality, her addictions were the cause of death. Sharon always said she used the drugs & alcohol to make her feel “normal”. At the age of 42, she was diagnosed as being Bi-Polar. The drugs & alcohol stopped when medicine started. That addiction was replaced with Nicotine, Caffeine & Sugar. Year after year her consumption of these were greater & greater. So, in the end, her body shut down.

Mental health & addiction affect the entire family, trying to deal with someone who cannot help the way they are. If you or someone you love have these issues. A good resource would be Helpline, they could help start the journey to being “normal”.

She had little peace on earth so I hope she finds it in heaven.

The family would like to thank the Delaware Police and Medics for their assistance and compassion during this time.

Following her love of cats and in lieu of flowers, contributions in Sharon’s memory may be made to the Humane Society of Delaware County, 4920 State Route 37 E, Delaware, OH 43015.

The Snyder-Rodman Funeral Center is honored to assist the family.

  • Mrs Ott and Sue,
    I just read this in the obituaries. I am so sorry to hear this. I lost track of Sharon after she moved back to Ohio from Atlanta. I should have kept closer. We spent many hours and times together from Freshman years in high school till she moved to join me in Atlanta.
    When she moved back, we lost touch.
    I should have looked her up when I moved back to Ohio, but so much time had passed and I figured we had gone different directions. I should’ve been there for Her.
    Again, I’m so sorry.
    Mary Lou McDonald Gnade
