She is survived by her husband of 58 years, Gene, her son Kevin (partner Vicki) , daughter Patti (husband Paul), daughter Bridget (husband Scott), her 2 grandchildren, Connor and Abby, who were the apple of her eye, her beloved siblings (Patty, Peg, Larry, Tom, and Lori), and a gaggle of adored nieces and nephews.

Nolan family: Oh, so many fond memories of sleep-overs at the Nolan house😊. I can still here Sharon saying to Bridget and I, when we had gotten the giggles or were carrying on about some silly nonsense, “ Honestly, girls!” What a deeply sad occasion upon which to recall so many happy an heartwarming times. I only just learned of Sharon’s illness last week. Barely time to process it... I can only imagine it from your perspective. Let her strong faith and love of God , bring you comfort, knowing she was met by the open arms of her Lord Jesus Christ. She is no longer suffering and her body is perfect. She knows no more struggles like the ones on this world. She is eternally at peace. What a humble and faithful servant! May you all find pleasure and joy in the many memories held in your hearts, and may the days to come bring a gentle healing. Sharon will no doubt be remembered by many with warmth and smiles for the way she touched their life. May God bless you all, Nolan family, with the peace and comfort that only He can give.
