Sharon married my cousin , Bob, and my family first got to know her when they were young marrieds living in Wawatosa, Wi. As a young teenager, I adored her. She was so sweet and kind and made me feel like I wasn’t just a kid. I asked her to be my confirmation sponsor. I wanted to be a mom like her when I grew up. She was such a natural mother and loved her boys so much. I treasure the memories of time spent with Sharon. To David, Steve and your families and my godson, Brian, may God comfort you at this time of sadness and loss of such a wonderful mother.

We loved her and enjoyed her so much. We miss that grin and smile that melted hearts 😥 she was an amazing, kind, gentle soul that just enjoyed people. She loved to look nice with matching jewelry and always enjoyed going shopping.

We had the pleasure and honor of caring for Sharon and our love for her lasts forever ❤️

May each of you find comfort knowing she is always watching over the ones she loved 🙏 ❤️

Sharon was my sister-in-law. I remember when she and Bob were dating in high school in Binghamton, NY and I, a pesky little sister, hanging around. She was kind and empathetic with a lovely laugh and a twinkle in her eye. Sharon was always ready to listen, listen, listen to whatever I was going on about. I remember her as a young mother with small children when she was the victim of a terrible car accident. During her slow and painful recovery, she always maintained focus on David and Stephen’s welfare and again would always listen, listen, listen to whatever I was going on about. I was inept with both caretaking and children, yet she patiently helped me to help her and always with a ready smile and good sense of humor. We never lived near each other and our touch points were few, but they were always marked by her empathy and tremendous listening ability. She truly loved people and was always interested in the people around her. I admire Sharon for dressing up and looking absolute fabulous despite a very long and difficult struggle with Parkinson’s. She and my bother faced many challenges that would have broken less strong and loving couples, but they worked together to build a good life and raised 3 boys into 3 good men. Sharon loved and was beloved. Godspeed my lovely red headed sister-in-law. You will be missed but your spirit will always touch us.
