Sharon will be greatly missed by all who knew her. She loved her church family, church choir, and most of all her family and very special grandchildren. Sharon was an LPN in pediatrics for over 20 years. She also served as an organist for her church for over 60 years. She played her first full church service at the age of 12. Because of Sharon’s love for music, Gib purchased a harp for Sharon as a Christmas gift one year. She taught herself to play and enjoyed playing for many years.
