Sharon was born on July 5, 1943 in Hayward, CA to Vince and Helen Indiveri. She spent her first 4 years living with her mother and maternal grandparents in Watsonville, CA while her father was in the Philippines during WWII. Upon her fathers return they moved to San Jose, CA where Sharon attended Willow Glen Elementary and Willow Glen High School. Her family eventually moved to Kings Beach, CA where she graduated from Tahoe-Truckee High School in 1962. She furthered her education commuting to Sierra College from Kings Beach, and then attending and finishing Cosmetology school in Las Vegas, Nevada in 1963.

In 1964 Sharon married Joe Pusateri and they began a life together in San Jose, CA. They moved to Nevada City in 1977 to be closer to her family. She was a devoted wife and mother for almost 54 years.

Sharon was a fine homemaker and wonderful cook. Many of her delicious meals were shared with friends and family which she truly enjoyed. In addition to cooking, she loved to use her creative mind drawing and redrawing the perfect house plan with the most efficient and beautiful use of space.
