I will always remember Sharon for her beautiful voice and hearing her sing at church in days gone by. I always thought she could have sung professionally. She was a beautiful person and her attitude was so positive even after her diagnosis. My husband and I would see her and Terry often as we were all at Vanderbilt cancer center as Sharon. Terry and Ed received treatment there. Our prayers are with Terry ,Chris. Betty and all the rest of the family during this difficult time. We love you all. Donna and Ed

After a year-long battle with pancreatic cancer, Sharon Edwards died on Monday morning, 29 April 2019 while in hospice care at her home in Murfreesboro, TN. She had lived at that home since purchasing it in 1980.
She was born 11 April 1950 in Dayton, KY. Her fondest memories were of summers with her grandmother and early childhood in Grahn, KY. Sharon was always a survivor. She survived an early life-threatening illness as a baby, then a near fatal car accident when she was five. Thrown through the glass, the resulting scar on her cheek would remain with her the rest of her life, a steady reminder of the fragility of life; but, also of God’s grace.
Sharon graduated from Waggener High School in Louisville, KY in 1968. She attended Eastern Kentucky University but did not graduate, choosing to marry instead. Sharon moved to Nashville, TN and lived there until moving to Murfreesboro, TN in 1980.
By 1989, Sharon had married Terry Edwards of Murfreesboro, TN. While she worked faithfully in many jobs over the years, her great joys were home-making and spending time with her family. Sharon enjoyed travel, visiting the Bahamas on many occasions and even getting to Scotland. But she was equally at home at a campsite with her husband.
While not a church member in any formal sense of the word, she attended the Nazarene church where her father preached until his retirement. Sharon expressed her faith through love for her husband, children, and grandchildren. She would often send snippets of a Bible passage or a devotional, seeking to encourage others in their walks with Jesus.

I remember the day that you and that little blonde headed boy moved in next door...not knowing that you would become more than just a neighbor...we would become family. I am going to miss you so and I am sure that I will still find myself looking for you to be out in the backyard but I won't be sad because I know you are good and you are healthy and whole with no more pain. Fly High Aunt Sharon and Rest Easy with the Angels.
We Love You

Always her Mommie's little girl. She will be missed so much by Family, Friends and all those who loved and cared for her, and especially her husband (Terry) who took such good care of her. May God richly bless him in the days ahead.
