Sharon was a long time member of Aurora United Methodist Church. She was active in the women’s group and always enjoyed getting together with friends for Bible studies and other activities.
Sharon was very talented and creative in many ways. She had a love for cake decorating and needlepoint on plastic canvas. But what she loved even more was being a wife, a mom and a Granny. She loved her family and poured herself into them. She was an excellent cook and baker and meals were always made from scratch with love! She will always be remembered for her loving heart, sweet smile and giving spirit.
