Pauline “Pete” Gertrude Hoge Sharpley, 84, of Dahlgren and Keswick, VA, departed this life on Monday, September 23, 2019, in hope of glory, being ushered into the presence of God. She will be fondly remembered for her constant smile, laughter, joy, friendliness, encouraging words, and boundless energy.

She graduated from King George High School in 1952 and went to work for the Navy Base in Dahlgren before moving to Virginia Beach where she met and married the love of her life, Ronald Lee Sharpley, in 1961. Shortly after, she became a mother and homemaker, raising her two daughters as they moved around the country, residing in Vienna, VA, Liberty Lake, WA, and Charlottesville (Keswick), VA. For 22 years, she was a secretary in the guidance department at Walker Middle School in Charlottesville; after retiring in 2000, she returned to her family home in Dahlgren. Pete is preceded in death by her parents and her beloved daughter, Janna Rhae Sharpley.
She is survived by her husband of 58 years, Ronald, her sister Margie Gallahan, her brother and sister-in-law Gene and Lorraine Hoge, her daughter and son-in-law, Paula and Paul Werme, her grandchildren Timothy, Jennifer, and Emily Werme, and her many cousins, nieces and nephews.
