She loved spending time with family and friends playing euchre, listening to music, making memories & watching the Chicago Cubs, Bears and Bulls. Grandma loved talking with her grandkids with all her heart. Anyone who met her, would never forget her, that’s just the impact she left on others.

Sharon was the second oldest of our cousins. As kids our families were together a lot. Sharon was one of the sweetest, caring, and loving life persons I've ever known. She seemed to live for husband, her kids and grandchildren. I think we're all thankful that Sharon isn't suffering anymore. And as they say, 'God only takes the best'.
My wife, Chris, and I will aways remember the good times at their house.
Our best to Carlos and the family.
