I was blessed to know and work with Sharon with the Job's Daughters and Order of the Eastern Star. We shared many happy times together and I will miss seeing her at Benjamin's where we were able to share lunch once in a while.

Missing my long-time neighbor for more than 50 years. Our families grew up together in Fairview with Jay and Kathy and Joy and Jeff attending Van Duyn school and all graduating from Clinton High School. May she rest in peace with Our Lord and Jerry by her side.

Special Lady, great influence, teacher and along with Anna Ruth the very best example of friendship. I was so lucky to know Sharon from teenage years and she was thankfully still dedicated to Jobs Daughters to have a special place in my daughter’s hearts as well.
My condolences to her family.

I am so sorry to hear of Sharon's passing. Don't know the details, but its still shocking to lose such a wonderful person. I just found out last year that she was a cousin of mine thru Wimsett/Ingram families. Was just getting to know her thru our Eastern Star sisterhood. What a sweet person she was. My sister, Anne McGrew, is also in OES, and we sure enjoyed getting to know Sharon. She was loved by so many! We will see her again one day in Heaven. Prayers of love and comfort for all the family and friends.
Much love Sharon--you will be missed.
Cousin Marilyn English
