For anyone that knew Sharon, knew she enjoyed Shopping!!! She also enjoyed reading, sewing, decorating, making jewelry, cooking and again shopping! She loved to make everyone laugh with her sharp wit and amazing sense of humor that definitely kept everyone on their toes; especially her children. Most of all she enjoyed spending time with her family, grandchildren and many nieces and nephews; whether it was camping and boating or just getting together to cook a huge meal, “That looks like no one had even ate!”. She was the type of person that would bend over backwards to help anyone. She was a very loving and compassionate person and you were never a stranger in her eyes.
