The one thing that I remember most about Sharon is her laugh. As a child and later as an adult I can rember that laugh when she was in conversation with others and would get tickled and laugh. Although I have not got to see her in several years that laugh I can still hear.

I came to Howard Community in 1988. And worked on another unit . But came to know Sharon then. What a go getter,opinionated, funny!! And a great supporter of her nursing coworkers. I’ve known her daughter Karen for many years. A kind caring funny lady. And my distant memories from high school at Haworth, of her son Scott. What a funny prankster guy he was !! So I know she passed her fiunny kind side to them.
Prayers for comfort for her family n friends.
