Aunt Sharon will be missed by everyone who knew and loved her. We didn’t really get to see each other very often, but always enjoyed our time together. I remember she made the best peanut butter fudge, and also baked beans! My sympathy to Don and David and their families, and the rest of her family.

Sharon was a fun person to be around.lost contact with her after the divorce, but ran into her shopping. When the Eagles club was going strong we enjoy each other's company.So sorry for your loss

Aunt Sharon is the best friend of her sister, my Mother Bonnie. I remember many times seeing them joke around and laugh themselves silly, tears streaming down their faces, laughing until they could hardly breath. For my Mother, Sharon was the person that she could confide in and lean on. Sharon will not only be deeply missed by Bonnie, but by all her family and friends.
