EDINBURG - Shari Beth Libby Leveille slipped peacefully from the arms of her loving family to the waiting arms of her father in heaven on March 6th, 2016 after a short illness. Shari was born June 29th, 1964 to Carlyn Michaud Libby and Ralph Wesley Libby in Lincoln Maine.
She grew up and attended school in Howland, Maine, graduating from Penobscot Valley High School in 1982. She was an avid sports fan and participated in soccer, basketball and softball and coached Jr. High girls basketball for a few years. The youngest child and only girl with three older brothers who adored, protected and (as she was quick to mention) often tormented her she grew up strong, happy and accomplished. Shari went to work for the State of Maine in 1982 quickly moving to Worker's Comp Commission where she spent her entire career. In 1983 she married her childhood friend, Scott Leveille. Even though the union did not last they remained friends
and while they were married they produced two beautiful daughters who survive her, along with three beautiful granddaughters.
Shari is survived by her mother, Carlyn Libby of Edinburg with whom Shari and her daughters had lived for several years; daughter, Ashlee Leveille, and significant other Stanley Williams; daughter, Jordan Leveille and fiance Jacob Madden; special and adored granddaughters, Isabelle and Aliyah Williams, and Willow Jean Madden; brothers, Gary Libby of Edinburg, Keith Libby of Edinburg, and Darryn and Linda Libby of Newburg; several nieces and nephews; and too many friends and extended family whose lives were touched and inspired by her zany humor, courage and determination. She was predeceased by maternal and paternal grandparents and father, Ralph W. Libby.
A celebration of Shari's life will be held at 2pm Wednesday, March 9, 2016 at Clay Funeral Home, 7 Lee Road, Lincoln, Maine, with the Rev. Leslie Nesin officiating. Friends and family are invited to join in the celebration. Interment will be in Edinburg Cemetery at a later date.

One precious unto us has gone,
The voice we loved is stilled.
The place made vacant in our hearts,
Can never more be filled.
Our Father in His wisdom call
His tender love hath given
And though on Earth the body lies
The soul is safe in Heaven.
