Cosmetics firm Mary Kay has paid its respects to Sharon Coburn after the executive senior sales director died following a long battle with cancer. 

“She was just a great leader of people. I think people looked up to her because she was so enthusiastic and so passionate about things that they couldn’t help but to be inspired by her,”​ said Ray Patrick, president, Mary Kay Canada.

Coburn had been with the cosmetics company for 33 years and was also a founding member of Look Good, Feel Better, a charitable foundation of the Canadian Cosmetic, Toiletry and Fragrance Association that helps women who are suffering from cancer improve their appearance and feel better about themselves.

A celebration of her life is being planned for Oct. 20 at 11 a.m. at the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre in Owen Sound.
