Sharon was my neighbor from the day I moved into my first house. We were two doors from each other. Sharon became my babysitter my friend and my go to person. She was so devoted to her family but she always had time to help others with whatever their needs. Sharon I'll always remember you and love you. You have raised a beautiful, wonderful family. You left a great legacy!

Sharon was my mother n law for 15 years as I was married to her son Shawn. There are so many memories that I have of family dinners at holidays.

The one thing that I always thought, was that Sharon had many attributes, such as, a heart of gold. She always wanted the best for each of her kids and grandkids.
She had a smile that would light up a room. Her laugh was so infectious that it made you laugh just hearing her laugh.

I remember she did ceramics and she made me the most beautiful ceramic angels and gave them to me for Christmas...
Those Angels I still have and I will always treasure them.

She always gave the best advice about being a good mother, and wife and just a good person in general.
She wouldn't tell you what to do but she would share her experiences and allow you to choose but then she would be there when you chose wrong and help you learn from the mistake.

Unfortunately when Shawn and I divorced we lost touch for a long time, and then we got together one day and I apologized and took accountability for some things and she did too and we agreed that we would always love each other...

I had much respect for her. She taught me many how to make her famous macaroni n cheese..

She loved to talk. She had a very sweet spirit.

And she ALWAYS spoke so highly of my mother Alma... She said my mom Alma was one of the greatest ladies she had ever met. She had a way of making you feel good. Sharon you will be dearly missed not only by your children and grandchildren but alsoby your other family and friends.. I know your in heaven with Jesus and your family and I am so happy for you. However I pray for your children Kevin (and family,) Christopher (and family,) Shawn (and his family,) Lisa (and her family) and Paul. May God wrap his arms around them and give them comfort and peace during this difficult time. R.I.P. Sharon (Mom for 15 years) and watch over all of us. Until we meet again!! You will be missed. I LOVE you and ALWAYS will.

Aunt Sharon has the biggest and most sensitive heart! For as long as I can remember, she made me feel very special and loved. When she looked at you, her eyes spoke volumes; so full of compassion, empathy , and love! Her spirit is so sweet. She had a way of reacting to anything you said that was so impacting…she’d hesitate, then say “well, ok” and then she’d laugh…it was one of her most endearing qualities. I’m so thankful she loved our Lord, because I know she’s with her beautiful sister and dearest friend, my mom! And, I can rest in the assurance of Christ that we’ll be together again…see you then, dear Aunt!
