Sharon Ann Miller Grochett was born October 20, 1944, in El Campo, Texas, to Edward “Pete” Miller Jr. and Vee Eva Garrett Miller, sister to Philip Miller (spouse, Sheila Miller; children, Troy and Bradley Miller). She married William “Bill” Stephen Grochett of Houston, Texas on May 10, 1969, at St. Philip’s the Apostle Church in El Campo, Texas, and together they raised three children in Houston, Texas: Stephen Paul Grochett (Carissa Vance), Craig Jason Grochett (son, William Grochett), and Susanne Garrett Grochett (spouse, Matthew Prediger). The family attended St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church, where Bill and Sharon are still parishioners, and St. Philip’s the Apostle Church when visiting El Campo, Texas. Sharon worked throughout her life, and her most proud work revolved around her family. She was talented at preparing amazing family meals, and her kitchen was often a hub for special connections: sharing an easy jitterbug with Susanne; listening to issues and successes for hours on end without tiring; sharing funny family memories frequently as though the stories were brand new; and playing cards with anyone interested in initiating a game. Sharon was a sweet and gentle mom and grandmother (Mimi), always her family’s biggest fan, and she was also the first to firmly steer them in the direction of humility and realness. She showed deep respect towards her parents and in-laws which attributed to inspiring her children to build special relationships with their grandparents. Today her children are blessed to hold significant, happy memories of Bobo and Papa Pete and Grandma and Grandpa Grochett- past their deaths.

Sharon left us too soon, and she will forever be remembered as a loving wife, mom, grandmother, and genuine friend.

It has been a joy to become friends with Sharon. What a blessing to have such a wise counselor in a family. Joy of Cooking - this reminds me of Sharon. She put us all to shame with her culinary expertise. This lovely person will be greatly missed.

Such a genuine and kind spirit has left us too soon. Sharon lived and collected each moment in her life for what it truly was. This was something I looked up to.
And Man, was she a great cook! Food so good you would cry right at the dinner table! We love you Sharoni, with all our our hearts.
Love, Carissa

I am so saddened to hear this news. Sharon was such a sweet lady, and I have very fond memories of times with the Grotchett family at the Oaks Dad’s Club when my brother Patrick played baseball with Craig. I would see her periodically throughout the years in the neighborhood, and we would catch up on life...I always enjoyed our visits. Sending all our love and prayers during this difficult time.

Keeping all of the Grochett family in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Sharon was a very special, kind woman who loved her family and friends deeply and unconditionally. She always had a smile on her face. She always had a story to tell that we always enjoyed listening to. Good times! We have many fond memories from spending time with her and the family going many years back. God bless all of you and may Sharon rest in peace.

We love you! Amy & Lloyd Cole
