  • Share this obituary:

Sharon K Eckles Bradley was born in Provo, Utah. She attended Brigham Young High School and then Brigham Young University. She was always very industrious, starting at a young age working at many different jobs to support her mother, including several management roles. She married her sweetheart, Bruce Bradley, and together they had three children. During their 46 years of marriage, they welcomed eight grandchildren, all of whom she adored. She taught them, nurtured them, and made every effort to cheer them on at their many performances and games—rain or shine.

Her love for children didn’t end there. She worked for several decades at Dilworth Elementary School as a computer lab teacher and testing administrator, where her kind and gentle teaching manner touched the lives of thousands of students. She lived and breathed service, whether in her volunteer capacities for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, or during the countless hours she spent crocheting many hundreds of hats and blankets for local hospitals and charities.

Sharon had a great love for the holidays that she instilled in her entire family. This was often expressed through annual traditions that included pumpkin-carving parties, Easter egg hunts, and a year-long preparation for Christmas that ensured each child and grandchild received not one gift, but many, with every present reflecting Sharon’s thoughtful attention to each individual’s specific personality and interests.

In the rare moments she wasn’t serving others, Sharon enjoyed driving her jeep with the top off and music blaring, watching British mysteries with her husband, and stopping to notice every beautiful moment of nature’s grace that she came across—hummingbirds were one of her favorites.

She passed away October 11, 2018 after a brief but intense battle with cancer. In accordance with her long-standing instructions, a private graveside service is being held.

  • No words can really express how I feel about Sharon.
    She is a “Salt of the Earth”, type of person.
    She is a Great Wife; Mother, Daughter; Sister-In-Law; and Friend.
    She went out of her way to make me feel welcome in the Bradley Family those first years of marriage.
    One great memory is when Mark and I were coming back to Salt Lake City after getting engaged in New Jersey. As the bus drove up we saw Sharon and her children with a big sign. The sign said “congratulations” on it. She’ll never know how much that meant to me in those days❤️. I really looked up to Mothering Skills. I was blown away with her children the first time I met them. I remember thinking “I had never seen children that good, happy, fun, loving and talented. I left saying, “I want to be like her when I become a mom”. She has so much talent in her little finger. She is the one who taught me to use “Pam Spray” she gave it with my pumpkin bread trays that I still have and use to this day.
    I love her so much and I will miss her pressence in my life, NEVER will I loose her INFLUENCE!
    I love you Sharon.
    Thank you for loving me as me and accepting me❤️
    Love Always,
    Tammy Bradley
