Sharon was a sweetheart. We use to have so much fun when the girls were in the Radskins. I enjoyed her angelic laugh and smile. Have not seen her for couple years. But will see her again. God be with Rick and Tonya. ...

Sharon was such a lovely woman and I have such fond memories of her from my childhood. At times she was like a second mom to me I can remember her showing me how to use curlers in my hair. She always had time for me and showed me a few cooking skills like her wonderful Macaroni salad . She was a beautiful person. Prayers for Ricky and Tonya love you all !

She was a loved one, a friend, and someone special. To family and friends who knew her best, Sharon will be remembered as a very exceptional person.

      Sharon was born on June 25, 1951 at Mountain State Hospital in Charleston, West Virginia. She was the daughter of Delmar & Bonnie Harding. Sharon grew up in Sissonville, West Virginia.

      Sharon was raised with four siblings. She had three sisters, Pam, Debbie, and Tammy and one brother, Tim. Sharon was usually involved in all sorts of activities with her siblings. She and her siblings experienced rivalries typical of a growing family, but they shared many life experiences over the years.

      As a young girl, Sharon had a number of interests. Like most children, she enjoyed playing and making up games. She was curious about the world around her and was often eager to explore it. In her spare time she liked collecting dolls. Sharon's memorable achievements included winning runner up Ms. Trojan. However, to Sharon, the most fun to be had was simply playing and spending time with her friends.

      A typical teenager, Sharon had a fairly happy high school experience, making that critical transition from adolescence to adulthood. She graduated from Sissonville High School in 1969. She enjoyed some classes more than others, having favorite subjects and teachers. Her favorite class in high school was Home Economics.

      Always considered a “good” friend to those she knew, Sharon enjoyed a broad group of acquaintances and several very close friends during her lifetime. While growing up, her best friend was Joyce Samples. Later in life, she became friends with Brenda Burdette, Jill Holmes, Joyce Lowe, Patti Ann and Robin Slater.

      On February 5, 2005 Sharon exchanged wedding vows with David Ray Jones at home in Sissonville, WV. Empathic and loyal, Sharon was committed to making her new family happy.

      Sharon worked hard to be a good mother to her children and she did her best to fulfill their needs. Sharon was blessed with five children, one daughter, Tonya Holmes Belcher and 4 sons, Rick Holmes, Daniel Jones, Michael Jones, and Jeff Jones. Another blessing for Sharon was the gift of nine grandchildren, Christian,Tori, Logan, Dace, Cade, Aubrey, Rylan, Shelby, and Hunter.

      Fortunately, Sharon enjoyed what she did for a living. Showing a strong work ethic, Sharon worked diligently and did her best to succeed in her career. Her primary occupation was a Pharmaceutical Technician. She was employed for 20 years. Sharon always sought to be a team player, doing what was necessary in order to get the job done.

      Sharon enjoyed her leisure time by taking part in various hobbies. Her favorite pursuits were home decoration and quilting. She also enjoyed collecting Gone with the Wind and Willow Tree Collectables. She was content to enjoy her favorite pastimes alone but was also willing to share her interests with others.

      Sharon’s faith was important to her. She was a follower of the Baptist denomination.

      Sharon enjoyed traveling and time away on vacations. It was a chance for her to renew and relax, to visit new places and experience new things. Her favorite vacation was in Holden Beach, North Carolina.

      Sharon was a lover of animals and cherished her pets. One of her favorites was Savannah, a Siberian Husky. They were best friends for 12 years.

      When Sharon’s retirement finally arrived in 2013, she was well prepared. Her new life involved enjoying her home and family. In retirement, she found new pleasure in home decorating and quilting. Even in retirement, Sharon continued to stay in touch with her old friends while making plenty of new acquaintances. Sharon was active in her new community and felt fulfilled with the opportunities retirement offered her.

      Sharon passed away on July 19, 2020 at home. Sharon died from complications due to cancer. She is survived by her husband, children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, brother and sister. Services were held at Tyler Mountain Funeral Home. Sharon was laid to rest in Jones Cemetery in West Virginia.

      Simply stated, Sharon was a good and kind person, an individual who will for all time be remembered by her family and friends as being a caring and giving person, someone who was a vital part of their lives. Sharon leaves behind her a legacy of life-long friendships and many cherished memories.
