Sharon L. Duell, 79, Newburgh, IN, passed away September 30, 2020.

Sharon Laine Dozer was born in Zanesville, OH, May 31, 1941. After graduating high school in 1959, she went to work at Spitzer Motors, Columbus, OH where she met David L. Duell and began a life together, moving with his work at Chrysler Corporation and raising two sons. In 1979, they purchased an automotive dealership, Evansville Chrysler Plymouth in Evansville, IN (now Duell’s Automotive Group, Evansville Kia and Evansville Hyundai). Sharon was an active member of the “Chrysler Crew” at the dealership, while also pursuing her dream of an undergraduate and a Master’s degree at the University of Southern Indiana.

Whether with her husband, family or friends, Sharon enjoyed many adventures through travel. A few notable trips included dog sledding, Antarctic expedition, Amazon river cruise, riding camels in Egypt, and zip lining wherever she could find one. In most recent years she enjoyed a slower pace discovering all the beauty within the United States.

Jim Thompson and myself were over her home and went to get a part for Doug. She gave us a new Volvo to drive. Jim and I having a bit of trouble figuring out how to open the rear hatch on this new high tech car. We asked Sharon to help. After opening it for us I asked how she did that. Her response was “ It takes a woman “ Pretty much sums up Sharon to me ! Lol

I have been in shock the past few days after hearing about my Aunt, I’ve reminisced and I have got to spend time with her and was glad that I was able to. I kept hearing stories about her tremendous home in Indiana and I finally got to visit her there. I was in awe and still talk about the stories about getting to see her there before going I went overseas. I will keep you in my prayers always 🙏🙏🙏

Love you Aunt Sharon
