Sharon Pearl (Schriefer) Price, 88, of Newburgh, Indiana, passed away on March 17, 2021 at Deaconess Gateway Hospice Hospital in Newburgh, IN. Born on February 11, 1933, Sharon was one of two children born in Lamar, Indiana to Delbert and Bethel (Ferguson) Schriefer. Sharon grew up on the farm she still owned in Spencer County, and graduated from Dale High School, in the Class of 1950.

I met Sharon several years ago at The Evansville Duplicate Bridge Club. I always enjoyed talking to her there and will miss her.

Sharon was a regular at the Evansville Duplicate Bridge Club until we closed the physical club due to the pandemic. She was always fun to play with or against and a good player as well. She will be sorely missed when the club reopens later this spring.

Sympathies to her family and friends, especially her Bridge partner Leona.

Sharon was a good friend when we both lived in Rockport. She helped me in my Girl Scout troop and even went on a week-end camping trip with the troop. It was rather cold and Sharon went from one cabin to another to make sure the girls didn't smother under the covers. I played duplicate bridge with her for quite some time. She was a lovely, caring person...such a good friend. I've lost touch with her since I moved to Chesterfield, Missouri almost 7 years ago to be near my daughters, My sincere condolences to Debbie and Denny and to your families. God bless you all.
