She grew up on a beautiful farm with her parents and older sister Marcy. She resided in Delano her entire life.
Sharon was known for her amazing memory and thoughtful listening. She was the keeper of all stories and secrets of the past. She had an infectious giggle and loved to be with her family, cousins, friends and beautiful cat, Cali.

In her younger years she enjoyed walking around Delano and visiting her family cabin in Crosslake, MN. In her older years, she had a wonderful community at her apartment complex and lived simply connecting with her friends and spending her days with Cali the cat. She was deeply loved by her friends and family and will be extremely missed.
