Praise God, girl, You are now in the loving arms of our FatherGod for all Eternity in your mansion in Heaven with the animals you’ve loved in the past and will welcome others to come, Genesis 9:10-12. I met you as a neighbor for a time and God used me to pray into your life your move to Houston. You received and made Jesus, the Lord of your life in this time. I remember our drive to the animal place in Eureka Springs. Jesus will always love you forever and one day we shall meet, again.

Shari was always pleasant and easy to work with. She was a competent nurse, and you could always count on her to carry her weight during a Cath Lab case. My heart is so saddened. Prayers for her family and friends.

Shari, such a beautiful soul. Always a smile on your face and a joy to be around. You were filled with life and lit up a room with laughter. I had so much fun with you at work and when we hung out. I will miss you sweet friend. 😇

My heart pounds in my chest just seeing your name here. Tears fall like raindrops. Oh girl, this is a hard one. This week at work, so many times I thought of funny things I would have texted to you just a few short weeks ago, then I remember that I would not get a reply. All the pups are good!! They are all taken care of. Shari.... I just cannot believe this. Maybe I never will. You know now what the entrance to Heaven looks like. For the rest of us, we will still keep the faith. I know one thing, you better be having the best steak and the best beer up there!! I think God would allow it. With Love.... Cindy

I’m sadden to hear of the passing of Shari. I had the pleasure of working with her for 10+ yrs at St. Lukes. She had a heart of gold and a personality to match. That definitely showed that in her work as a nurse. Sending prayers for understanding and healing during this difficult time to the Sholwalter family and her Cath lab family as well. She will be missed! RIP

Shari and I worked at McDonald’s together in high school. I remember the night before we were taking the ACT. We had to go out of town to take it. We packed up her white mustang and went by the liquor store (I think she was so pretty that they would just sell it to her in those days) to get the little pony bottles of Miller beer. We headed to the hotel where we’re staying and drank all the beer. We were so hung over taking that test. She was always good for an adventure. When I went back to Springdale for the 10 year reunion, she was on my list of people I wanted to see but she didn’t show up. I left a note on her door before I left town telling her that I was sad that I didn’t get to see her. My heart is broken to know that smile that made her eyes look like commas are no more. Wishing peace and comfort for her family and friends.
