Sterrett, Sharon M.

July 27, 1944 — December 4, 2022

With her family by her side, Sharon Marie O'Rear Sterrett went to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on Sunday December 4th in her Independence, Missouri home.

Sharon was born on July 27th, 1944 in Kansas City, Missouri to Orville and Gladys O’Rear.

Before marrying the love of her life of 58 years, she attended Raytown High School and was a Majorette/Dancer and active member of the Drama Club. Along with her friends, her favorite pastime was following the Doo Wop Group, “The Diamonds” which led her to being the President of their Fan Club. She attended Central Missouri State in Warrensburg, Missouri where she met her husband Dennis C. Sterrett.

Dennis and Sharon moved to Independence, Missouri and started raising a family. Sharon was a devoted wife and loving mother of three. She was a Homemaker, active member of the PTA, Campfire and Boy Scout Mom. She was Self Employed as a Mary Kay Cosmetic Consultant.

Together with her Husband, Sharon owned a Computer Business and also traveled all over the world. One of the most recent (and her favorite) places traveled was Costa Rica. This is where they would spend the Winter Months. If not traveling, Sharon spent her time enjoying being “Grandma Sharon '' to her six Grandchildren and one Great Grandson. She spent the last years before retiring as a Kitchen Coordinator at a local Montessori School where she was adored by all the children who would call her, “Miss Luncher Cooker”.

Sweet sweet, Sharon. There are no words for me to describe what an amazing, talented, & classy lady you were. And so fun! We laughed & hugged so much, all the way to the end. And you never complained one time. You will be missed so much by your dear husband, & children. (I know you're soooo proud of how wonderful they all have been during this difficult time.) Thank you for being such a blessing in my life, & I will forever remember & be grateful for all our good times. And that laugh I will never forget. So contagious. You are & will always be deeply missed. However, we all know you are with Jesus, & it doesn't get better than that. Love you, Miss Sharon.

I will miss you deeply Sharon. You were the best mother in law a girl could have asked for. You always treated me like I was your own. I will cherish that forever. To the woman that made the best biscuits and gravy Christmas morning, rest in peace. Love you Sharon!

Kristie Sterrett

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.

All my prayers are with Sharon’s family. What fun we had. Sharon was my best friend in high school and college. We had a hard time staying out of trouble. I love you Sharon.
