Being the youngest sibling, she cherished her role as a sister to Marlene, Marvin, Orval, Belva, Terry, Verna, and Odell.
Sharon loved whole heartedly, you didn’t need to be family to be part of her family. All were welcome in her home and at her table. She had numerous people that either called her mom or claimed her as their second mom. Sharon loved to keep busy cooking and baking with her children and then grandchildren. Late summers always consisted of picking berries and making pies and jam. She enjoyed quilting, sewing and many other crafts. She blessed her grandchildren with special memories during their walks to the river, and outings together.
Sharon will be lovingly remembered by her husband of 46 years, Gordon and their two sons Ryan (Amanda) and Dean (Melissa). She will be dearly missed by her six grandchildren Burke, Archer, Carsten, Cade, Everett, and Sadie; along with numerous nieces, nephews, and friends. Sharon will be deeply missed by all who knew her and love her. Her memory will forever live on in the hearts she touched throughout her life.
