I will always remember my Aunt Sharon for her laughter, great energy and big smile. She was fun and quirky to be around, which I loved.
So many wonderful get togethers and time spent with the family I will cherish.
Much of my childhood was spent hanging out with my cousins at their home on Kemper. I think I spent as much time there as I did my own home. She always tried to include me and made me feel important.
Devoted to family. I remember her caring for our Grandmother in that very home. What a selfless act of love!
I knew her as a prayerful woman who loved the Lord. When our Grandmother would go into the hospital , she would call and tell us to pray. I remember staying up into the wee hours of the morning praying the rosary and asking for protection for Grandma.
Much of my faith today is due to my Aunt and her convictions and seeing the results of a family that prays together.
She was such a neat person and a kind soul. I was blessed to have had such a wonderful Aunt. I will miss her.
May she rest in perfect peace .

Sharon was not just my Great Aunt, she was also a close friend of mine. I could always guarantee every year on my birthday that I’d get a card from her in the mail with a sweet message, followed by a long phone call. We were born within a week of one another and always bonded over how similar we were in disposition. She had this beautiful way of making other people feel heard and included, I always considered her a second grandmother to me because she always made me feel so loved. She had a beautiful, kind soul and I’m going to miss her warmth forever.
