I am so saddened to hear that Sharon is gone. I first met her when she drove my son to/from Prospect Mill. He was a handful for others, but not her. Sharon was so patient, kind, and giving. She always had a kind word or gesture. I then met her again years later when I was working at Prospect Mill. She immediatley recognized me and asked about my son (by name). We would wave or chat over the next few years. The last time I saw her was a year ago. I will forever remember her as a sweet, kind, and caring person. Sharon, may you rest in peace and your spirit forever shine.

I just recently met Sharon while I was staying at her sister Michele's house. It was a cold, windy day, her & her daughter Holly came to the house,they were going to set up a table at the church flea market down the road. It was early so I was still tucked in my bed all nice and warm when they came. I decided to get up because I wanted to meet Michele's sister Sharon. Before I knew it I was outside helping load up the cars w/all this good stuff she would get for free or dirt cheap from the grocery stores or Rite Aids because of her mad coupon skills lol I believe we made a little over $300 that day & boy did I need the money. I hadn't lived w/Michele all that long but in that short time I could tell how close they were. I'm so glad I decided to get up that morning because it's now a very fond memory I will always have of her ❤ Indeed a selfless person, may she rest in peace.

Mrs. Sharon, it is hard to believe you are gone. Our hearts are at a loss. We accepted you were going to retire, enjoy life with your family, but not this... it’s not suppose to be.

So many years, so many miles we shared. In and out of bus lots, up and down the roads, waving at each other as we went by.

Mrs. Sharon, you will be greatly missed, by so many, me included!!!💔

Our sincere condolences to the Dye family. You are in our prayers. Although I never had the opportunity to talk to Ms. Sharon, I passed her for many years on my way to work. She always waved and you could tell how much she cared for her children on the bus. This year my son had the opportunity to meet Ms. Sharon as she got him to school and home safely each day. From the first day he stepped on bus 125 she took the time to get to know him and care for him on the short ride to school. Prayers to the Dye family with love from the Carson family.

I've known Sharon nearly all my life, all the way through school, girl scouts and other things. She always kept us laughing. I feel bad we weren't able to get together in person but very thankful we we're able to on Facebook. Condolences to her entire family, I know she loved each and every one of you! My heart is very heavy right now. Bless all of you.

Mrs. Sharon, I loved riding your bus in sixth, seventh, and part of eighth grade. You were one of the most genuinely kind people I have ever met, and you never had anything but nice things to say about anybody that rode your bus. I feel lucky to have known such a lovely lady.
