Sharon was a loving, devoted and proud military wife and mother who supported her husband and family as they journeyed together through life during her husband’s naval military career. The family moved to many different states, but Corpus Christi, Texas eventually became their permanent home until February, 2020 when they moved to Arlington, Texas. Sharon was a very devout Christian woman and spent many hours volunteering her time with church organizations and activities. She loved spending time with family and friends and playing board games that she was certain she could win….losing was never an option for her. One of her favorite pastimes was watching the Dallas Cowboy football games. She was an avid fan, never fair weathered and stood by those Cowboys in good seasons and in bad. Sharon enjoyed making new friends and with her beautiful smile that could light up a room, she was always welcomed and liked by all.
