Sharon cherished her beloved family more than life itself. She was so proud of her “boys” and “6 wonderful
grandchildren” whom she never grew tired of talking about. Sharon lived for family gatherings, events with
her grandchildren and always willing to make something special for them to enjoy. Sharon was an excellent
cook and spent hours making delicious meals and scouring the internet for new recipes to try with her family
and friends. Sharon lived life to the fullest and spent her life with Ron traveling and seeing new places.
Sharon had many great years at her second home in Myrtle Beach, SC, where she welcomed family and
friends to enjoy. Just prior to her death she hosted a wonderful party for friends in Myrtle Beach where they
laughed and enjoyed her creative dishes, laughter, and company.
Words cannot express how much Mom loved her family! Mom and Dad were high school sweethearts that
graduated side by side and were together until the end. Mom’s love will always have a special place in each
and every one of their broken hearts. Mom will be missed dearly by all, especially her husband, “3 boys”,
grandchildren, and dog Derby. Mom is now flying with the angels and being comforted by the Lord Jesus,
her family that has passed before her, and especially her mother and beloved brother, Donnie Wilson.
