Sharon Baumgarten Maifeld peacefully passed away on Saturday, September 26 at home surrounded by her family. She fearlessly fought Stage IV metastatic breast cancer for nearly 10 years and with the caring and compassionate care of her oncology team at Swedish, led by Dr. Kristine Rinn, she was able to maintain a quality of life that allowed her to achieve many of her goals including the Danskin Triathlon, the high school graduation of her son, Aidan, and the bar mitzvah of her son, Sam.
Sharon is survived by her husband of 25 years, Kevin Maifeld and sons Aidan Maifeld and Samuel Maifeld of Seattle and her parents, Frances and Aaron Baumgarten of Los Angeles, and brother Alan Baumgarten and sister-in-law Margaret Anne Smith, also of Los Angeles.
