Sharon Autagavaia Obituary

Sharonmarie Lucia Autagavaia was born on July 14, 1991 in Orange, CA. In 1998, when Sharon was only 6 years old, her mother Fuailelagi Nive Autagavaia was called home to be with our Heavenly Father. Fuailelagi’s brother, Tunai Lafaele Autagavaia and his wife Jacinta Fiatagata Autagavaia immediately took over her guardianship, along with the help of another of Fuailelagi’s brothers, Leota Tominiko Soosemea Autagavaia. Lafaele and Jacinta cared for and nurtured Sharon as one of their own, the youngest of their children.

Sharon attended St. Joseph Catholic School during her elementary and Junior High School years. She graduated from Orange High School and began a Nursing program at Goldenwest College and entered the workforce in the medical field.

In 2010, Sharon met and fell in love with Ibrahim Rida. A few years later, they started their family with the birth of Liam Soosemea-Ibrahim Rida in 2013. In 2018, Sharon, Ibrahim, and Liam moved to Las Vegas, NV, where they welcomed Lucia Fuailelagi-Laila Rida.

Sharon is a beautiful part of a small immediate family with sisters Virginia (Moetai) Masina & Papali’I Agnes (Taimalelagi Ryan) Tauanu’u; brothers Allen (Pauline) Autagavaia & Patrick (Stephanie) Autagavaia; nephews Moetai Lafaele Masina; Aiden & Allen Jr Autagavaia; Aaron Autagavaia; and Ryan Jr. & Jalex Tauanu’u as well as nieces Malia, Tatiana and Princess Tauanu’u; Aurora, Ava, and Autumn Autagavaia; as well as huge extended family with a host of aunts, uncles and cousins, nieces and nephews.

Sharon is an amazing mother and adores her children. Everything she did, everything she is, was for her children.

Sharon loved to travel, karaoke, dance and stay surrounded by her loved ones. Spending time with and making memories was always a must.

In 2020, Sharon was diagnosed with breast cancer. She immediately began aggressive treatments, enduring countless visits to the doctors. Sharon cherished every opportunity to be around those she loved. Sharon’s battle continued on for 4 years until her last breath on January 17, 2024, where she was surrounded by her loved ones.
