Sharon was the biggest cheerleader for her family and attended every sporting event she could for her loved ones. She loved to travel even if it was just going for a drive to look at the changing leaves in fall. She loved planting flowers and preparing for Spring. She enjoyed painting anything that could use a fresh coat. She loved coloring, puzzles, and playing cards with family. She was rarely without a fresh glass of unsweet tea.
Sharon was a retired homemaker who loved sharing her passion for a home cooked meal with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Her legacy will live on through her famous chicken noodles recipe passed down through every generation.
