Sharon was family .I can’t remember not knowing her. I told someone when she got to heaven she probably asked God if there was anything he needed to know about anyone in Kokomo. She was a woman of God and that is what she would want to be remembered for.

I always enjoyed visiting with Sharon at church services. She loved to hear the UBC choir and would be in the services whenever she could. Heaven has gained a jewel.

I served with Sharon in the Stephen Ministry program at Ascension Hospitals. She always had a smile, and a passion for serving others. I enjoyed our times together and learned from the insights she shared regarding patient visitation and caring for others. I will miss her. Verna Arthur

We were Sharon's pastor for 3 1/2 years in Kokomo. Our daughter was born during our time there and Sharon loved to hold her and love on her. She had a big heart for Jesus and others. My husband loved to pick on her and she dished it right back. She testified often and everyone knew that she loved Jesus! She will be missed.

We met Ms. Sharon only last year, and she was such a sweet lady. She blessed our family in the short time we knew her. Her heart for Jesus was exuberant. What a privilege it was to know her!

I will always remember Sharon as someone who loved many and was always happy and smiling. My family had the privilege of being her pastor's family for about a year. Many Sunday afternoons were spent at her and her mother's house, where Sharon would read to all five of us before lunch. Sharon was my Sunday school teacher❤ we will miss her greatly, but know that she is happy and resting with her Savior.
