Sharon Goodwin passed away on March 27, 2021. She earned a Bachelors degree from the Memphis College of Art. Shortly after graduation, she married John Goodwin and began working at the Baptist Brotherhood Commission where she was a graphic designer. It was here that she met a small group of lifelong friends who kept her laughing and made her job more fun than work. After retirement, Sharon spent most days loving and playing with her grandchildren. She also enjoyed volunteering in the children's center at Hope church, going on short trips with her friends, and every Fall you could find her cheering on the LSU Tigers in memory of her husband who called LSU "America's Team".

Sharon is survived by her daughter, Jessica (Hayden), sister Laura (Hughes) and grandchildren Christian, Brandon and Brooklyn.

The family will receive friends on Thursday, April 1 from 1:00-2:00 PM with the Celebration of her Life to begin at 2:00PM. All services will be held at Memphis Funeral Home - Poplar.

In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to St. Jude Children's Hospital on her behalf.

This week has been a turmoil of emotions for everyone involved in Sharon's life. My aunt left a lasting impression on everyone she knew, and I'm thankful to God that I have the opportunity to call her my family. I will miss her. But I'm also thankful for the time we had and the fact that she is in a better place now. Her legacy will live on, even in the subtle details of our lives as we go out. Best wishes to my family, friends, and even those I don't know that visit this page and are witness to Sharon's life and lasting memories presented here.

Jessica and family, we are so sorry for the loss of your Mother and Grandmother. Although we never met her, I can only imagine what a beautiful, kind person she was as Jessica is the one of the kindest, most thoughtful people I have ever met. Jessica, although your beautiful Mother is not physically here anymore, her legacy lives on through you.

You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers during this incredibly difficult time.

-The D'Entremont Family

Jessica, I’m so sorry for the loss of your sweet mother. I lived a couple condos down from her. She was so beautiful with such a kind heart. I always admired her pretty patio of flowers, plants and decorations. My condolences to you and your family.

I really enjoyed my time with Sharon. We laughed a lot together and both of us enjoyed the outdoors and flowers. When words come to my mind to describe her it’s how gracious she was. So kind, loving and caring. I will miss you a lot. Love Beth

Jessica,

I was one of the editors of Lad and Crusader and RA Leadership magazine and had the privilege of working with your Mom. We shuffled editor's from time to time, but I was there from 1984 to 1997. I always loved working with your Mom and thought the world of her. We worked on many projects through the years. We lost touch with each other after I moved away, but recently found a letter from her.

Your Mom was a wonderful person and a great artist, making the stories come alive. I know she thought the world of you. One of the covers she and I did, was the one where you were the virgin Mary, and you were holding a cabbage patch doll.

I'm really sorry for your loss. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
