God Bless Sharon and her family. She was so smart, thoughtful, and a true friend to me. Such an asset to United Airlines during those years.
We had many meals together and many laughs.. I enjoyed visiting her in Rushford. Hopefully she had
good memories of those days.
I treasure the memories. Sharon DeWitt
Sue I am so sorry to hear this. I loved Sharon's wittiness, smile and laugh. I enjoyed when she would participate in the games at the home. She loved to show her family photo's when I visited with her. She was very proud of her family!!!
Susan and family,
God bless Sharon. What a wonderful big sister. She was most happy when she knew everyone else was happy. You Veir girls come from a wonderful gene pool; Stanley and Alta Mae were dear folks. We had lots of fun at the Veir house, including many laughs with Gramma Bremmer. I’m sorry for your loss but keeping all those good memories. Jim Bunke
Susan & Family
We would see Sharon every time we went to see Dr. Peterson at the nursing home and it was so sad to see her condition. We think back of all the good times with your folks. We just talked to our son Jim and told him about Sharon's passing. He spent a lot of time at your home when he was just a kid. Its always hard to lose loved ones, but maybe Sharon is better off under the circumstances. We wish you and yours the very best and pray that the Good Lord will keep you strong.
