We have some wonderful members here at the Ouray Hot Springs Pool. One of my favorite ladies is Sharon Sward. She comes in every day with her contagious smile and always has something nice to say. She attends our morning classes 3 times a week and the rest of the week she’s here every morning doing laps and soaking for a while.

Sharon was born in Illinois and has lived in few places before coming to Denver then on to Ridgway. She was a university professor at several Colleges such as Cal State LA, Univ. of Georgia, Univ. of Tennessee and Red Rocks Comm. College Denver.

Sharon has been married to her husband Larry for 54 yrs;  her son, daughter and grandchildren are the apples of her eye. She enjoys golfing, swimming, cross country skiing and walking. A couple of her favorite pass times are playing bridge and sudoku.

Sharon’s favorite pool would probably be the shallow pool (been doing her laps here this winter) or the lap lanes in warmer weather. Her favorite time of the year is fall in mountains. Sharon’s favorite thing about the pool or anywhere in Ouray are the fabulous views!

Thank you for just being so pleasant and making my day a little brighter when you are my first member of the day!
