Sharon Liss April 20, 1939 - December 31, 2019

Sharon Huberman Liss passed away Tuesday, December 31, 2019 at eighty years old. Sharon was born in Brooklyn, New York on April 20, 1939, the first child of Morris Huberman and Sarah Minkin Huberman. She grew up in Brooklyn where she attended James Madison High School and graduated in 1957.

At twenty years old, she met Harris D. Liss. Just one year later the two were married and headed to Houston after brief stops in Florida and New Orleans. Sharon and Harris’ marriage blessed them with two devoted children, Jody and Dana.

Sharon was best known in the community as “The Balloon Lady”. Her party decorating business was her passion that lasted over twenty years, which is fitting seeing as she was ALWAYS the life of the party. Just ask the Golden Girls, as well as her lifelong crew of best friends.

Sharon’s world was her family. She loved Friday night Shabbat dinners which included watching movies, eating fajitas, and reminiscing about her amazing life. The highlight of her life was her close relationship with her four grandchildren, Jessica and Joshua Blumfield, Lauren Liss, and Adam Hakimi.

Sharon enjoyed dining out with her friends and family, playing Mahjong and Rummikub, and she had a true love for reading and playing Solitaire on her Kindle.

Sharon is predeceased by her husband, Harris D. Liss. Her memory lives on through her children, Jody Liss and Dana & Stephen Hakimi as well as her loving grandchildren, Jessica & Joshua Blumfield, Lauren Liss, and Adam Hakimi.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the charity of your choice.

A memorial service will be held on Friday, January 3, 2020 at 12:30 PM at Congregation Beth Yeshurun 4525 Beechnut St. Houston, TX. 77096.

    I am so very sorry to hear this news. I have so many memories of time we shared on our trips to Corpus Christi. My deepest sympathy goes to all of your family, I know how difficult this time is for you all. Sharon’s children and grandchildren were the lights of her life and whenever she spoke of you she would “glow”.
