Sharon lived a life devoted to her family and friends touching many people in such a positive way. She was warm, loving, naturally friendly, easy to talk with and made everyone feel comfortable. She had a servant heart and enjoyed giving to those in need. Her five grandchildren were the light of her life and she showered them with unconditional love while caring for them. She was their biggest cheerleader never missing their sporting events or school activities. Many children in the neighborhood and community knew her as “grandma” because of her welcoming heart. Sharon enjoyed camping, traveling, shopping and spending time with the love of her life, her husband Bob.
