Sharon was a neighbor for several years she was a wonderful caring person dhe will be greatly missed
Sharon and I grew up together in the same neighborhood in Alma, Michigan. I have known her since I was a little girl. Even though life brought many changes to each of us over the years we always managed to see each other from time to time. Sharon I will miss you terribly but I will always have our memories. Your friend Roach.

I met Sharon through Peggy Blackwell in 2014 when I moved to Lexington from Tx. Sharon and I connected as we both were retired GTE employees and we loved crafts and adventures. We had a lot in common and I so enjoyed being around her! My most memorable times with Sharon... her 70th birthday with her nieces/cousins/sister in Padre. Dale Hollow weekend Music fest. Absolutely such a fun weekend. I shall never forget what wonderful times I had getting to know Sharon and the adventures we shared together! R.I.P. you will forever be in my Heart.❤️😘
Sharon was my best friend. We did so many things together. Concerts, horse racing, just sitting around doing puzzles. Our last adventures were quilting and listening to country music. Our last trip was to Pigeon Forge for quilting classes at Mountain Quiltfest. Also trip to the Kentucky Derby in 2019. I miss her so much already. Save me a place in heaven for our continuing adventures. I love you.
