Sharon and I were friends for 50 years. She was the rare person who was always available. No voice mails with calls 3 days later. She was available on the spot to offer an opinion, or help someone through a problem. I admired her many talents as a craftswoman. Most of us have one of her pieces of needlepoint, sewing or knitting, and she shared her gifts unselfishly. She was an excellent teacher of underprivileged children, and raised two model sons with the just right combination of iron fist and loving heart. She was a loving, devoted wife. Sharon has left a legacy of caring for others, and her memory will not be forgotten.

We will definitely miss her coming to the restaurant and drinking her margaritas. Daisy will miss talking to her friend. Our most sincere condolences to the family.

Sharon was my close friend of 50 years. One of the things that set her apart from others was that she was always available. You didn't get a VM msg with a call back 3 days or more later. She was available to any number of us to talk about current events, our past college days, and always had the most sensible advice to offer. I don't think she realized how important she was in our lives. When she had to stop teaching children due to her autoimmune disease, she bravely switched gears and became a teacher to all of us by exhibiting extraordinary patience and perseverance. She unselfishly shared her talents with all of us, and it is these memories that sustain us in our grief.

Tony, I’m going to miss that little lady. She was a sweetheart. I always loved to share our stories of days gone by. And most of all I’ll miss her sweet spirit.

Sharon was my best friend for nearly 50 years. She was blessed with the gifts of communication, which she used during her teaching career, for underprivileged children; a razor sharp wit, and the ability to tell it like it is. She was an excellent mother combining the proverbial iron fist with a loving heart, and for her efforts she was blessed with two beautiful, productive children. She imbued them with her love of and the principles of the Orthodox Episcopal faith, and gave them a work ethic early on. She was blessed with a loving, devoted, caring husband who served as caretaker throughout her many illnesses. She was an excellent crafts woman and many people were the lucky recipients of her talents with crocheting, needlepoint, knitting and sewing. She used her gifts to the best of her ability thereby enriching her family, friends and society, all while battling an autoimmune disease for nearly 50 years. She was a true warrior, and a beautiful example of perseverance to all of us. While we are sad at her passing, her memory will sustain us all. I shall truly miss her, but am lucky to share in the love she and have family have extended to me.
