Yeah, reading the old posts and speculation. It's really weird how wrong people were, and how crass they seem in retrospect. I just read an article yesterday about more details surrounding Steve Irwin's death, and I thought, wow, everyone was so wrong about the way he died, etc...
I'm still wondering, though, what happened to Sharie. Was it cancer? Was it something else?? And, does anyone know if she was married or had kids? Not that it matters, I suppose. But, I would like to think she had someone special to help her out near the end.
RIP
I believe she was married to Dave Vinton of OC16, who also had a short stint at KGMB as their sports anchor/director.

Hey CHS Alum,

Thanks for the response. Although, I read that they divorced in early 2000's. It seems she died alone. That's really sad. Although, I guess most of us will die alone.

Anyways, if anyone knows how she passed. That would be interesting to know. Hope she went quickly.

Dave Vinton must be an A$$. You hear nothing from this person who was married to her. They got married so he must have loved her at some point. He should at least make a statement about the good times they shared together. It must have been an ugly divorce- too bad, so sad.

Now she is sadly dead, but the cause is not revealed. Celebrities seem steadily more often to die young or relatively young, often due to strange cancers or other strange incidental events. And I know from things I can see and hear about in my neighbourhood that the same things happen to ordinary people. There is something very disturbing going on in the societies of today.

Ironically people this happens to are usually those behaving politically correctly in all ways, those following all advices from doctors and other autrhorities, those taking all their vaccinations and so on.

I knew Ms. Shima before she as a very talented news personality. Was shocked to hear of her passing last night. Into thy hands we commit the spirit of Sharie Shima; watch over her as she passes through the gates of Mortality to live eternally in the heavens....

OMG - let's just call a spade a spade - shall we ? If It was cancer - there is nothing to be ashamed of. Even the beautiful Farrah Fawcett had the courage to stand up and tell the world she had anal cancer. Who ever heard of that ? Not me - that's for sure ! The rumors are that this lady was a meth head. Why keep it so secret ? That drug ruins lives and kills people. Is that what did her in ? Shame on the family for not telling the truth. Addiction is nothing to be ashamed of. It is a killer and no one would even know that except for the ones brave enough to share their stories. How sad is it that you can't even share what was going on with you after you have left the planet ? No wonder that poor girl never got the help she needed while she was alive !

Sharie and Dave used to come in as a couple, to a restaurant I worked at. It was towards the last few years of their relationship. One of my co-workers served them one night and told me that Sharie lost her shit at the table. It was a very hole in the wall restaurant, they were regulars and we're pretty cozy with our customers. My friend told Sharie she thought she was very pretty (she didn't know who Sharie was and is just naturally very envious and complementary that way) and Sharie snapped at Dave and said, "SEE! SHE THINKS I'M PRETTY!!!!" My friend wasn't quite sure what she had started or walked into. It wasn't long after that they split. A couple months later, I saw Dave in the parking lot of Mililani WalMart with a very thin, athletic, youngish looking girl--MUCH younger looking that Sharie.

I've hear people say Sharie looked thin, that she had an eating disorder. I've seen her weight fluctuate. I can't help but wonder if it wasn't because she was influenced by the opinions of others rather than her own happiness.

Respect her last wish about the circumstances surrounding her death and just focus on the many positive things about her. I always enjoyed watching her on the news. She was a class act. Let her rest in peace. Amen

Went to college with Dave..he is extremely arrogant and vain. Once told me that I should date him so that I can say that infamous lame quote, " I knew him when".... Barf. Needless to say I stopped speaking to him. He constantly looked at himself in anything that showed his reflection.
