Sharon was a friend, neighbor, and fellow member at Kirkridge Presbyterian Church for many years. When we were neighbors she was a Cub Scout leader for many rowdy little boys whom I admired for her commitment. Our son was in her troop and really liked her as a den mother. Over the years we worked together on many activities at Kirkridge, including Vacation Church School when we both brought our grandchildren.
Sharon had a kind heart and reached out to many of us at church. We send our sympathy and prayers to you and your family, and join you in missing her.

Love, Dotti Bornholtz and family
