September 29, 1947 – February 16, 2021
Sharon, 73, formerly of Seabrook, TX, passed away February 16, 2021 at her home in Charlotte. She was born in Mobile, Alabama, September 29, 1947 to the late Dick and Ann Diehnelt.
Sharon received a Philosophy degree from Scripps College in California and later went on to receive a law degree from University of Houston. While in Texas she started a law firm dedicated to labor-employment law, ultimately being admitted and qualified as an attorney and counsellor of the United States Supreme Court. From advocating passionately for her clients in her career as an attorney, to being a needlepoint master, to tearing around Texas in her Chevy Corvettes, she was one fierce, intelligent and independent woman.
She is survived by her brother David Diehnelt of Phoenix, AZ; sister Andrea(Mike) Hall of Charlotte, NC; nephew David(Brittani) Hall and grandnephew Dylan Hall of Mableton, GA; and numerous cousins and friends.
Sharon insisted on no pomp and little circumstance on her passing and we honor her wish. For those wishing to send memorial gifts, please consider Communities In Schools Charlotte-Mecklenburg (www.cischarlotte.org) or Assistance League of Charlotte (www.assistanceleague.org).

I first met Sharon when I moved from MA to Charlotte and joined a jewelry/ craft group. Sharon was an absolute delight, great experiences that she shared with us, we often sat and chatted without crafting and hearing about her life experiences she had an amazing journey. She absolutely loved her great nephew and was so delighted to spend time with him. Before covid she organized a craft fair table and we had a lovely day, she made beautiful felt pictures and amazing decorations, our table was approached by three ladies on an outing from a residential home and she sold them (at bargain prices) some of her hexagons that the ladies used on their hats, she got a real kick out of that sale and her interaction with the ladies. Her sister came and we were pleased to meet her. She was much loved and liked my thoughts to all her friends and family a truly lovely person x
