Mrs. Sharon Ann Anderson
January 17, 1950 – April 10, 2018
Dearly beloved Sharon Ann Anderson, peacefully departed the province of life and entered a tranquil rest in the arms of God on April 10, 2018 surrounded by family in Alpharetta, Ga.
Born on January 17, 1950 in Birmingham, Alabama, Sharon was the daughter of the late Perry Escott and Marzell (Watson).
Sharon attended East High School in Cleveland, Ohio. Following studies, Sharon commenced on a corporate career with British Petroleum-BP Corporation, later joining Kurt Salmon Associates. In 2004, Sharon joined KPMG, working in several executive roles before being appointed Senior Administrative Assistant. During her 14-year tenure with the company, Sharon garnered accolades for her professional attributes, diversity leadership, and tenacity as part of KPMG's Abilities in Motion Network (AIM), a plexus fostering an environment that supports associates affected by disabilities. In December of 2014, during an AIM Town Hall meeting, Sharon was an honored speaker, sharing acuity and raising cancer awareness.
Adored for her benevolent essence, elegance, charm, and shrewdness, Sharon enjoyed attending church, reading, singing in the choir, and dancing. Above all, she delighted in spending special moments with her family.
Sharon leaves her footprints on many hearts. She will be vastly missed.
Sharon was preceded in death by her father Perry Escott, Sr. (1995); her dearly loved sister Carolyn Jay (1972), and brother Richard Pennick (2012).

I had the great priviledge of working with Sharon at KPMG for the past 4 years. I knew her to be a strong, courageous woman who loved God, her family and people. I never heard her complain. She would come by my desk and share wonderful stories about her family and we would laugh and laugh. I often told her that she walked faster than I did even though she used a cane. She was kind and was willing to share herself and her story with others. The sister of one of my dear friends was diagnosed with MM and Sharon did not hesitate to speak with her and to encourage her to fight! She was that kind of person. Sharon touched so many people. All I can say is that I will deeply miss her. Wanda
