Sharon Anne Trompeter
May 9, 1947 – March 31, 2019
Sharon Anne Trompeter passed away suddenly on March 31, 2019. Visitation will be held on Sunday evening April 7th at McGilley State Line Chapel, 12301 State Line Road, Kansas City, MO from 5pm – 7pm. Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10am on Monday, April 8 at Holy Spirit Catholic Church, 1800 SW State Route 150, Lee’s Summit, MO.

Sharon was born on May 9, 1947 in Kansas City, Missouri to Mary (Crider) Lodde and Fred C. Lodde Jr., the second of their three daughters. She received her education at St. Peter’s Elementary School and St. Teresa’s Academy. On October 10, 1970, she married the love of her life, Gerald Trompeter.
Sharon is survived by her family. Her husband Gerald; her son, Jeffrey Trompeter, his wife Anissa, and their children, Brandon, Lindsay, and Andrew; her daughter, Karen Gross; her sisters, Donna Rybowicz (Jim) and Theresa Lodde; and many nieces and nephews.
Sharon’s family was the absolute love and joy of her life. There is nothing within her grasp she would not do for her husband, children or grandchildren. She cared for everyone, in every way she could, especially children. Hers was the house with the Mom that neighborhood children would love to visit for a cookie or snack, or just to feel loved. Her three grandchildren were the pride of her life. She never stopped encouraging, affirming, and supporting them in all of their endeavors, with unconditional love. She was an amazing cook and baker, and loved to entertain family and friends. She would cook for days, to prepare for a holiday, or her annual cookouts to celebrate Gerry’s birthday. Her home and her kitchen were her happy place, and she was always looking for new recipes to try and perfect. As she always said, “If anyone leaves this house hungry, it’s their own fault!”
We will always love and cherish you Sharon. Though we are deeply saddened by our sudden loss, we rejoice with you, in your new life in the company of God, and all who have always loved you.

I went to high school with Sharon. We and others had a great time going to Winstead's on the Plaza! We stayed in touch for a while after high school, getting together for lunch or with our husbands to play cards and visit. She was a fun person and very dedicated to her family. My prayers are with all her family members and my hope is that all those precious memories will comfort them through the coming months and years.

So many recalled memories this past week of Sharon… I remember being at their house all the time growing up, and she’d always welcome me as if I lived there… as if I were one of her own. Those days of innocence wouldn’t have been the same without Sharon. Her love for her family always seemed to be at the forefront of everything she did, putting everyone before herself. Witnessing Sharon’s witty laughter, her infectious smile and loving care for others around her was a blessed & positive influence. Her love of music was such an inspiration to me when I was a kid and created such a lasting impression to this day. She’s now riding to the stars – a beautiful & charismatic woman who has made heaven a little bit brighter now.

What a wonderful/awesome person: Sharon. There are only certain people who you meet in life that make a lasting positive impression. She always put everyone else first, anxious to help out anyone that needed it regardless if they asked. Gerry, Jeff and Karen, your Wife/Mom was an amazing Lady and so very sorry for your loss. What a blessing to talk to her a couple days prior. That conversation will forever be one of the last best memories I get to have. You all take care.
