I met Sharon through Patty Booker. Sharon would volunteer at IU Health Bloomington Hospital as a patient for our medical students. She was always such a sweet lady to me and our students loved her! Even when we knew she didn’t feel well she never complained. Sharon brought me a vase with silk flowers for my birthday that I have displayed on my desk & I plan on keeping them there in her memory! She was a kind soul and will be missed by many!
