Sharon was a terrific lady who will always have a special place in my heart and memories.

What a kind, fun-loving, generous lady Sharon was. As a late entry into the extended family, Sharon always went out of her way to make me feel welcome and part of the family. Several times, she gave me gifts “just because” – for no special occasion. Every time that I would see those items or use them, I would always think of Sharon. I still have those gifts - new thoughts will now become cherished memories.

The beautiful photos on this site are a testament to the love Sharon shared with her family. We will remember her with that love and affection, and keep her family in our hearts.

I moved next door to Sharon about 12 years ago. She has been a good neighbor and friend ever since. We've exchanged helpful favors back and forth over the years; and I always knew that Sharon, with her generous heart, could be counted on to care and help should any big emergency ever arise.
One thing that showed her giving heart was the way Sharon loved to share food and goodies that she'd made. I would occasionally get some of her homemade fudge, and assorted cookies at Christmas time. But my favorite was St. Patrick's Day, when she'd send Travis over with a delicious plate of corned beef and cabbage.
In addition to the generosity in her personal life, Sharon deserves praise for her professionalism. She took pride in her work and did things right; she was one of the best hairstylists ever - always did an excellent job.
I've already been missing Sharon, and will dearly miss her in the days and years ahead. I'm very thankful for the privilege of knowing her!
Steve and Travis, you've been in my thoughts and prayers and will continue to be. My love and sympathy to you and the whole family.

Sharon was a very close friend of my mom and in turn a good friend of mine. She was a kind, caring person always willing to give advice or a helping hand if she could. I was 18 when I moved to Florida and Sharon got me my first job as a waitress at Gkedis on Cocoa Beach. There are plenty more memories, but too many to list. Just wanted to give my condolences to Steve and the whole family, I know she will be greatly missed. Thoughts and prayers to you all.

I met Sharon in 1992. It wasn't long that our 2 families became 1. We have a lot of beautiful memories .....far to many to mention them all.....but the holiday dinners and Superbowl parties are among my favorites. And let's not forget Bumpers...Sharon's favorite meet and greet. So many friends, laughs, and good times. I feel privedged to have known such a beautiful and caring woman and she will be deeply missed by all that knew her. My thoughts and prayers to Steve and family.

I have know Sharon for about 30 years. She is the only one I let cut my hair as she knew exactly how to do it and it always looked great. She was a special friend and a very special lady. She will be missed by so many of us here at Stonewood. I am blessed to have know Sharon. Rest in peace dear friend. My thoughts and prayers are with Steve and the family at this sad time in their lives. May God bless them....

Hello, my name is Jill and I have been friends with Sharon for over 27 years. If asked what is considered
a friend I would say someone who knows all your good qualities as well as your flaws and loves you just
the same. Someone who pushes you to be your best, someone who is there to pick you up when you fall.
Sharon was all of these. But the thing that I loved about Sharon the most was her generous heart. She
made it her constant mission to bring joy to those she loved and cared about. If she knew there was
something you needed or desired she would move heaven and earth to find a way to give it to you.
She loved her family dearly and she loved animals. She kept my wild critters chubby and very spoiled with her never ending leftovers and treats. My squirrels and birds got to know her car and would run to see what she had to offer. Everyone should know what an impact sharing has and Sharon did it the best.
She shared all she had, her talent, her spirit and her love. She was a giver over and over and never
looked for anything in return. She often confided in me that she has a hard expressing her feelings and
she struggled with prayer. But her actions spoke for her and her prayers were answered by the strength
she had shown through all her adversities. She inspired me with her courage to face things one after
another especially in her most recent journey. I don’t know how many people could keep on fighting being
given all the challenges she faced. But she did face them one by one. I would like to believe that she would
still have fought but the Lord felt she had given more than her share and He needed a special angel
by his side. He knew she would continue to give from above and protect all those she blessed with her
friendship. I am going to miss my dear friend so very much. I feel privledged to have had her in my life
and will treasure the memory of our time together. She will be forever in my heart.
Rest in Peace my Dear Friend……. Love Always, Jill
