Sharon was my son's first grade teacher during the 1991-92 school year. She was not only a strong academic teacher, but a kind and loving teacher who taught the "whole" child. The impact she made on my son and so many others will keep her legacy alive. As a retired teacher myself, I truly appreciate all she did for him and all the children she served so tirelessly. May her family find comfort in all their good memories and in knowing she is now enjoying her place with our Heavenly Father.

I was so sorry to hear about Sharon’s passing. I am in Canada on vacation, but I wanted to express my sympathy to the family. I enjoyed teaching first grade with her, and she was a good friend.

To Sharon,
My neighbor, my friend. I remember your love of flowers were your favorite. You filled your surroundings with them. You loved when friends dropped by to admire them.
I remember your love of Harry and David's pears. You always shared with me and other friends.
I remember your greeting me "Hi Neighbor" what's for lunch? You always wanted my recommendations.
I remember your pride of you son, daughter-in-law, three grandchildren.
To Sharon's family I send my sympathy. Heaven's gain is our loss. Her life truly made a difference in the world she left behind. She is with her beloved dog "Snooper".
I will remember you always Sharon. friend, my neighbor.
