(4 September 1938 – 18 March 2024)

Pradeepo (Sharon) Mueller left her body on March 18. She was 85. She was born in St Charles, MO, on Sept 4, 1938. She attended Washington University in St Louis, graduating summa cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts. She was a very talented artist in many mediums such as oil and pastels.

Pradeepo was married for 11 years and raised two daughters. When her children were young, she and her husband moved to the Marshall Islands in the South Pacific where she learned Polynesian dance and became a certified scuba diver. She loved to travel and spent time in many countries including Myanmar, Australia, Thailand, and China. She worked as a toy designer for both Mattel and Hasbro and won several awards and accolades for her toy designs.

Pradeepo was a seeker and discovered Osho and his teachings in her mid-40s. She was a devoted sannyasin, taking sannyas in Pune in 1980. She also lived at Rajneeshpuram for several months. In 1997 she moved to her beloved Sedona to continue her spiritual journey in what she considered to be one of the most beautiful and powerful places on earth.

Pradeepo leaves behind two daughters, Cami and Laura, granddaughter, Samantha, sisters Carroll, Linda and Debbie as well as several sannyas friends around the world.

Fly high, Mom. We love you!

My neighbor in Sedona and special lunch buddy. We were friends for 40+ years and loved Osho to the Moon. I met her daughters upon her passing and we shared many stories.

FLY HIGH, dear amiga…
