Sharon Marie Juopperi-Dasko


IRON MOUNTAIN, Mich. — Sharon Marie Juopperi-Dasko, 59, of Iron Mountain, entered God’s loving arms on July 15, 2017, after a long illness.

She was born in Ontonagon on April 11, 1958, first born daughter to Roger and Laurie Lou (Beck) Juopperi. A graduate of Ewen-Trout Creek High School and Gogebic Community College, she moved from her hometown of Bruce Crossing to Iron Mountain and started her career in medical transcription at Dickinson County Hospital, where she remained for over 30 years. From the hospital, she moved to a small private surgical practice, where she remained until her retirement in December 2016.

Sharon met and married her true love and best friend, Richard Dasko, on Sept. 5, 2010, at Our Savior Luther Church in Painesville. They made their home in Iron Mountain and together enjoyed countless summers camping and fishing at Way Dam Resort.

She always had a special place in her heart for animals and spent her entire life caring for and loving her horses, cows, dogs or cats. Her most recent fur babies, Tori and Buddy, provided endless hours of enjoyment to both Sharon and Rick. She was a loyal Detroit Lions fan, loved NASCAR racing, was an avid reader and looked forward to planting her favorite flowers — geraniums — every spring.

Sharon loved her family deeply and adored her nieces and nephews, who in turn adored their “Auntie Sharon.”

Preceding her in death are her father, Roger Juopperi; paternal grandparents, Hubert Juopperi and Helen Juopperi, of Bruce Crossing; and maternal grandparents, Arthur Beck and Irene Beck, of Ontonagon.

She is survived by her mother, Laurie Lou Juopperi, Hurley, Wis .; sisters, Cindy (Chris) Stanley, Harshaw, Wis., Theresa (Bruce) Buccanero, Upson, Wis., and Sandy (Rick) Pertile, Hurley; brothers-in law, Larry Dasko, Iron Mountain, and Michael (Jackie) Jung, Iron Mountain; and sister-in-law, Kathy (Jared) Lawrence, of South Carolina. She will be remembered, loved and missed by many uncles, aunts nieces, nephews, cousins and great-nieces and great-nephews.

A memorial service will take place at Our Savior Lutheran Church on Friday, July 21, 2017. Visitation will begin at 11 a.m. EDT followed by the service at noon.

A private family burial service will be held at a later date in the Hillside Cemetery, Bruce Crossing.

The Dasko and Juopperi families would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all family, friends and staff at Froedert Hospital for their love and support.

Cane Funeral Home, Bruce Crossing, is serving the family.

“Godspeed our beloved Ree-Ree. Give Dad a hug!”
