    I worked with Sharon at Cracker Barrel for a couple of years. What a great lady! She will be missed. She always bragged about her grandchildren and never had a bad word to say about anyone. She fought long and hard and swore it wasn’t going to beat her. Rest in peace Sharon, your fight is over.

    For the past 15 years Sharon was not only a co-worker of mine but my very best friend. She was the bravest and strongest woman I’ve ever known and I will miss her dearly

    Dear Marty, Andy & Cindy and family,

    I’m so sorry to hear about Sharon. I’m glad you put a picture on here since I haven’t seen her in so long. Still the same, sweet smile.

    I’ll remember her for the hospitality she showed us whenever we stayed at your home in Columbia. We went into the fancy new (& huge) Schnuck’s store to get long johns (yum!) & milk. She didn’t complain about Jena crying half the night & keeping everyone up.

    I also remember the ceramic dolls she so lovingly made. I always wondered if she ever used the foot of hair I cut off & gave her for the dolls.

    We had great fun staying up late & playing pinochle with her & your Dad, Don, & Nadine out at the farm. Jim & Don were both so sharp in cards and many other things.

    Take comfort in your good memories, especially as her birthday approaches, and know that she loved you all very much.

Leave a Condolence
