Taking road trips was one of her favorite things to do. Whether it be with her best friends

across the country to see her brother, she enjoyed her independence to get out and go. Her
latest adventure was a cruise to Rotan, Belize, Cozumel, Honduras and Cayman Islands.
Above all her greatest joy in life was her Family. She loved being a Grandma. She was the best
support and cheerleader attending every concert, activity, birthday or sports event. Always loud
and proud of her Grandkids. We will miss her cheering them on and celebrating their
achievements with us.
Sharon will be remembered by her wonderful sense of humor. She was kind hearted and
non-judgmental, truly authentic and cared for everyone she knew. She loved a good cup of
coffee and her flip-flops. Also very talented at cross-stitch and crochet, her hand made gifts are
extremely treasured and loved.
