Hey what a sister, what a roommate, what a cook, what a worker, what a giver. Skip, Lori and Brian——-we will certainly miss her....Love ya all.
My sincere condolences to dear Skip, Lori and Mark, Brian, Matt and Luke,
I feel blessed that I was able to share a meal with Sharon this time two years ago on my last visit from Australia.
I am sure you have many wonderful memories of a beautiful lady and that she will be missed greatly by you all.
Sending love and hugs to you Lori, Brian, Skip, Matt, Luke and Sharon's family.
I've know Sharon pretty much my whole life and have many fond memories of her making us dinner, being afraid of gerbils loose in the house, scolding Lori, and on it goes. As a kid, I remember seeing her frequently walk to/from Ace (and church) and always hanging laundry on the line. Her garden would overflow with beautiful vegetables and she was very proud of it. She was a quiet, lovely woman who volunteered her time to many, and I will miss her sweet smile.
My condolences to the family, Mary and I have known Sharon and Skip over forty years. Sharon was a faithful member of Christ Lutheran Church for many years and did a lot of work for our church. She was very easy to work with and really did a good job for many years at Christ Lutheran Church.
Skip, Lori and Brian

My thoughts, love and prayers are with you all as you find your new normal in life without her. Blessings. Cindy
