Sharon Carlson (1950 ~ 2014) . Sharon Carlson, 63, entered into the presence of her Savior on Friday, January 3, 2014. She personified what it meant to love God and to love others. Sharon believed that serving others was the highest calling a person could ever receive. When Sharon saw a need, she either filled it herself or saw to it that the need was filled by whatever means were available. Family was of the highest importance to Sharon and her greatest joys were spending time with loved ones and corresponding with friends and family who lived out of town. Of all the joys in her life, none gave her more pleasure from a young age than singing with her sisters known locally as The Moore Trio. Sharon blessed countless lives with her ministry in song and all who knew Sharon were rewarded by her presence and loving spirit.

She is survived by her son, Ed Carlson (Jennifer); brother, Ronnie Moore; sisters, Debbie Elton-Reel (Charles), Carol Bub (Rick), and Joy McCloud (Russell); grandchildren, Maddy, Cade, Amanda, Josh; and numerous nieces and nephews who will miss her greatly. A celebration of life will be held in her honor at Johnson's Mortuary on Thursday, January 9, 2014 at 10:00 a.m.

Arrangements under the direction of Johnson Mortuary & Desert Lawn Memorial Park, Yuma, AZ.

Dear Family: I look back when Sharom and the kids sang their hearts out in church. Watched their family grow in the Lord. What good memories of those voices. We just returned form the states to Taiwan. We will see one another again one day in the beyond.

May the good memories you shared with Sharon give you comfort as you go through this difficult time. Comforting also is the promise found in God's Word - John 6:40.

To my old buddies Joy, Carol, and Debbie -- I was so sad to hear of Sharon's passing. I can guarantee you that the minute after she was met by Jesus that my mom and dad (Luke and Hazel) were clamoring for a song from her! I'm sorry I didn't have the chance to come down to see all of you together once more. I still have so many, many fond memories of our years together. You are all in our thoughts and prayers, and we will be thinking of you on Thursday. Love to you all.

To the Moore and Carlson Families: We will truly miss Sharon. We have kept in touch with her and last corresponded during Thanksgiving. Her passing was such a shock but she loved our Lord and is now in His presence. We will join you in missing her until we meet again, on that great day. May the Lord give you comfort as you remember her loving heart and all she did for so many. She was the driving force behind our recent Yuma Assembly of God reunion. We love and miss you all - Steve and Pamela (Steen) Kurtz, Prescott, AZ
