So sorry to hear of Sharon’s passing. I met her and her sister Sherry when they walked into my US History class in 1967. That started a friendship that lasted until now. We loved Sharon and all of the family. She was a fantastic lady and will be missed. Praying for the family and may God bless you and provide the strength you need in the days ahead. 🙏🙏❤❤

This news breaks my heart. She lived, loved, and gave so unconditionally to all. It was her laugh, her spirit, her kind simple ways. She just knew how to make all others feel such an important part of her life. I know she believed that was a part of her passed onto your children. She loved life in nature . Often we visited under the trees at get togethers we attended. We would talk forever catching up on things. Just thinking of u all, Bryan. Look up at night at those stars. That’s how I know they r still there looking down. Those holes God made to Heaven. He even lit them up. Those stars make me smile then. They will for your family too.

Oh how I will miss my funny, kind, generous and loving friend!!!! She was one in a million as we all know! After moving back to Union City she swept me into her arms like I was a long lost kitten (she had loved me as a kid on our childhood bus route). With such a busy life filled with family, friends and hobbies she still made room for one more friend and included me on fun trips, sent me cards and showered me with unexpected random gifts! Oh how she made me laugh, seriously every moment spent in her presence was a joy and my face and sides would hurt from laughing so hard. I didn’t get to say goodbye or thank her for caring about me and loving me, which makes me sad. I hope she knew how much I loved her back! I’d like to share one of my favorite stories: So we’re eating at a restaurant and the waitress told her how lovely her hair was (she had a big hair piece in) and boy did she take off on that. She spent 5 minutes going back and forth with that gullible waitress about how her hair grew like a weed and she just wouldn’t stop. The rest of us were trying not to split a gut! We laughed so hard on the way home, I’m laughing now reliving it. Rest in peace our sweet angel on earth, now with wings you soar! You made the world a better place for so many.

Condolences to all family and friends. My cousin Sharon was always good to all of us, always welcoming, pleasant, warm, and kind. A beautiful soul. Distance and time seems to pull family apart but it never felt that way when we finally would see Sharon. Will miss seeing her. RIP cousin. Will never forget you.

Dear Bryan & family. Crit and I were so sorry to hear of Sharon’s passing. We found out today while looking thru the newspaper. We are so sorry for your loss. I will never forget the first time we met. Bob & Kim took us, along with our son to see your beautiful home. Sharon gave us the grand tour, both inside & along your property. I know we didn’t know each other well, but she had a laugh you couldn’t forget. So very sweet each time I did see her. Please know you are in our hearts & prayers & we were so sorry to hear of your loss. May God give you a peace that only he can give..love and prayers
Linda and Crit Jent
