Sharon was a BHS, graduate of the class of 1959. I remember Sharon as a sweet girl with a quiet gentle personality. Never did I hear one word of gossip from her, nor a bad word against anyone who attended BHS, at the time we were together those years in Beloit, KS.
God made a one-of-a-kind girl/woman.
I shall remember her with love and admiration.
