Sharyn was my canasta teacher at New City library. I was so happy to hear she was buying a property at Villagio Reserve and would be my neighbor across Hagen Ranch road. I would see her with her beloved dog often when i visited my other friends at Villagio. It was a shock to see her obituary here on facebook. I had no idea she was ill.
My deepest condolences to her family. She will be missed!
