Obituary

SHARON “DEL” WORLEY


Sharon “Del” Worley, 76, passed away unexpectedly on July 6, 2019 in Tucson, of natural causes. She was born in New London, CT, to Florimond and Priscilla Delforge. She is survived by her three daughters, Christine, Cathleen, and Shoshana; her step-daughter Kellie; her sister Dee; and her grandchildren, Mathew, Christopher, Andrew, Taylor, Reese and Rowan.

Del received her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology (1991, Prescott College), and her Master of Counseling (1994, University of Phoenix). During her long and distinguished career, she worked as a therapist in private practice, an administrator of a non-profit agency, and a clinical supervisor of counselors in training. She also was a consultant and trainer in the areas of addiction, Redecision Therapy, chronic pain management, and ethics. She was thrilled to pass on her knowledge by teaching at Pima Community College, Prescott College, and Ottawa University, and as a presenter at national and international conferences. She served on the Arizona State Board of Behavioral Health Examiners, the National Association of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselors, was involved in local and state professional organizations, and was co-owner of Southwest Institute for Group and Family Therapy. Del’s family was very proud of her 36-year sobriety, and she was a friend to many in the 12-step community.

Del was the rock of her family, and for many in the community, and she will be missed dearly. She will be remembered for her devotion to family, friends, coworkers, and clients, as well as for her laughter, humor, optimism, clear thinking, and kindness.

Memorial services will be held on Sunday, July 21, 2019 at 4:00 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Church located at 4831 E. 22nd Street, Tucson, AZ 85711. Fellowship will follow after the service.

Del and I had many common threads in our stories and I was just getting started when we met in the classroom, she as teacher, I as student. Same addictions, same attitudes, same . same same same... She thought I was difficult, I thought she was. Thank god I was sitting in those classes learning about exactly what I was going through in the moment. Oh those Stages of Change, taught by Del... Del would tell her stories and my eyes were wide and mouth open, too. Boy, would we banter. It wouldn't have been so meaningful and challenging if it had been anyone else but Del. Each semester I got better and I was able to voice to Del, "Can you tell? (!!) By the third semester, we had become friends. What patience. What a rock. What a funny, funny person. To get this news, I'm heartbroken, just heartbroken. I told you classes weren't going to be the same without you. Now the program won't. Nor will the campus. You KNOW there will be an honorary plaque. Bless your heart, Del. God bless you. You never gave up. On anything. Not even me.
