Will miss Sharon!! Special lady!! I love you Sharon!!
Sharon was a people person, kind & generous. She was the first to reach out to new neighbors at Forest Ridge & welcomed them. Sharon loved having children in our little community. She took them under her wing. Sharon was my next door neighbor at Forest Ridge in Lexington for 10 years. A wonderful neighbor. If I had to work late, all I had to do was send a txt asking her to walk or feed my dog. So many adventures, glasses of wine at the top of the hill at our Sippin Socials, Irish Coffee on St Paddy’s Day, parades in Lexington to cheer on our neighbors dressed as clowns! Sharon loved parades! My sincere condolences to all of Sharon’s family & hundreds of friends. We are heartbroken & miss you. And when it is safe, we will gather & lift a glass 🥃 in your memory. Much love❤️ Pat
Fly high Sharon! You were a wonderful supervisor and one of the most uplifting and positive people I know. I loved hearing and seeing your adventures on facebook. You were kind to everyone and certainly earned your wings!
Growing up in Alma, Sharon and Sue Roach and I spent many good years together as friends but things changed, closeness changed and we ended up growing apart. Good memories never changed though and the three of us had many good memories. My heart goes out to her friends and family. Bless you all during this very difficult time.....
Love you and miss you Sharon. Feel your presence all around us.
Sharon was a special lady. We had lots of good laughs and special memories together. She will be missed. Prayers for her family and friends.
