Sharon "Shoey" Ann Kearns Huber

June 27, 1959 - March 13, 2024

Sharon “Shoey” Ann Kearns Huber, 64, passed away on March 13, 2024. Shoey was born on June 27, 1959, in Redwood City, California to Raymond and Diane Kearns.
She lived in Redwood City until age two when the family moved to Winnemucca, Nevada. She attended school in Winnemucca, graduating from Lowry High School in 1977.
Sharon’s nickname (Shoey) was bestowed on her at an early age by her younger brother who had difficulty pronouncing her given name.
Shoey was how she was known by everyone her entire life. She even used it on her old Nevada blue license plate throughout her driving years.
Shoey married Vincent “Red” Huber in May 1981. They were blessed with two children and four grandchildren.
She was enormously proud of her children and attended many of their activities as they were growing up.
She worked many jobs over the years, including gas stations, cleaned motel rooms, waitressed, in the health food industry and at the title company.
In the early 90’s, Shoey and Red partnered and built the Pennzoil Service Center. It was a remarkably successful business that she enjoyed immensely which led to a lot of great relationships with customers and friends throughout northern Nevada.
In 2017 she decided to retire to spend more time with family and her many unique interests.
Shoey was always up for an adventure. She was an avid runner and participated in numerous marathons over the years.
These marathons took her to Chicago and San Diego, which were turned into family vacations.
She enjoyed painting, writing poetry, playing puzzles on her tablet, watching old westerns, taking her beloved dog for walks, exercising with kettle bells, volunteering at the Poke and Peek, visiting with friends, keeping her home neat as a pin inside and out, gardening, and she also helped establish the Winnemucca Gold Diggers roller derby team.
She had a keen sense of what was right and would share it with all and was extremely talented with the ability of painting a clear picture of the issue at hand, whether it was a bank, vice president, or a difficult customer.
Shoey was very strong-willed and stuck up staunchly for her friends and family. She will be missed immensely by all, but especially her family.
Shoey was predeceased by her parents and her brother, Michael Kearns. She is survived by her husband of 42 years, Red Huber, her children Hayley Huber, and Jared Huber (Aaryan), her grandchildren Aiden Huber, Jacob Myers, Oakley Huber and Jett Huber, her sister Sandy Cipra, her brother Mark Kearns (Anita), and numerous nieces and nephews.
An incredibly special thank you to all those that helped Shoey along her journey including her sister-in-law, Fran Lee, her brother-in-law Jude Huber and her close friend, Desirae Brunick. Services will be at a later date.
