In Memory of Sharon V. Widmann

Sharon V. Widmann, CEO of Bay Community Health (formerly Owensville Primary Care), departed this life on Monday, May 4, 2020 after a yearlong battle with pancreatic cancer. Born May 6, 1960, she was a 30-year resident of south county and previously of Easton, Maryland where she graduated from Easton High School.

Sharon was a dedicated mother to her two sons, Jason and Justin, and enjoyed spending time with them. Sharon and her sister Debbi were very close, sharing many escapades together. Debbi was by her side throughout her illness and until her passing. Sharon had two brothers and a loving mother Rose with whom she shared dozens of memories. A lifelong dog lover and breeder, her most recent pup, Lexi was a true companion. She remained by her side throughout her battle.

During Sharon’s 25-year tenure, her efforts were instrumental in Bay Community Health’s (BCH) accomplishments. She held positions in accounting and human resources and in 2009 she was appointed Director of Operations. In November of 2013, Sharon became Chief Operations Officer. That same year, her leadership guided BCH through the transition from an FQHC Look-Alike to a full FQHC in December of 2013. In 2016, she was appointed Associate Chief Executive Officer, to be promoted 2 years later as Chief Executive Officer. She championed the addition of Behavioral Health and Care Management services to BCH as well as expanding medical services to better meet the needs of our community. Sharon’s passion for the health center was remarkable. She truly cared about the employees and the community the center serves. This is her legacy and the framework of Bay Community Health.

In addition to graduating from the UCLA Healthcare Executive Program, Sharon had many other professional accomplishments. She served on several Boards of Directors including the Maryland Delaware Primary Care Association, the Maryland Community Health System (MCHS), and the Mid-Atlantic Association of Community Health Centers (MACHC), where she also served as Treasurer on the Executive Committee. In 2019, she was awarded the MACHC Community Engagement Award for her dedication and leadership of Bay Community Health’s outreach efforts and community relations.

A host of friends, family and loved ones will hold Sharon forever in their hearts. She was a leader, a mentor and the heartbeat of Bay Community Health. Her spirit and will to fight for those in need will forever be instilled in those she knew and held dear. She was loved and will truly be missed.
