I am so sorry to hear this. I worked at JCPENNY Outlet with Sharon and LOVED her. She was a beautiful and giving person. So sorry for your loss. 🙏

My loving mother, Looking back I am in awe of everything you did for us kids. The love and time you put into cooking a million awesome meals. We never went without. We always had clothes and shoes and full bellies. It took a strong, loving, smart and funny woman to raise us. Thank you for being my mom! They say you never stop being a parent, so I have one more ask... when you take a break from teaching Remington bad habits, would you give my son a hug and kiss for me? P.S. I can imagine God and Gabriel are discussing the handful you are and wondering if they can send you back to us! I Love You Mom.

This wonderful lady, my adored neighbor, was my rock when I lost my husband earlier this year. She chose to miss his service in order to cook and oversee food preparation for our lunch and have fresh from the oven, fabulous homemade rolls (who could be sad when walking into a room smelling of fresh rolls!). She knew how to heal hearts with laughter and fabulous food! She was my friend, neighbor and co-conspirator in pranks. I will never forget her sense of humor, compassion, talent with sewing, quilting & embroidery, cooking skills, LOVE and the joy of being in her presence. Sharyn took another piece of my heart with her, but left behind the most precious memories. I will miss your smile and laughter the most, my sweet friend!

Sharyn was a caring and fun person to be around. Her laugh could be heard at all gatherings. I always called her my Rabbit Queen because of her love for rabbits. I will truly miss you. Rest In Peace my true friends. China and you are free to run.💕
