She became a dedicated grandmother in 2005 and again in 2010.
Throughout Sharon’s life she loved dirt bike riding, fishing, camping and going to Fort Cobb Lake. Her favorite was floating down the Illinois River. Most activities ended with family and friends laughing and reliving stories around the campfire.
She most recently enjoyed road trips and destination flights with family to Nashville, New Orleans, Las Vegas, Flordia, Route 66 and Tombstone. Her most prized possession was her family and she was happy as long as she was spending time with them, especially at family reunions. Sharon was the life of the party and always kept everyone laughing. In addition, Sharon absolutely loved Halloween. She always went all out in decorating. In the past she would wear costumes, and her home served as a spooky attraction for so many people to visit.
