I was grateful to work with Sharon for 27 years. One of her many strengths was her ability to work with employees in their time of need. You could tell she loved her grandsons very much and always talked about them. She will be missed.

So sorry for your loss. She was always so much fun when we did family photographs. I love the image of her that you used here for her obituary. Such a great smile.

So sorry for your family’s loss. She was such a special lady! Don’t know what I (Deb) would have done without her when I began my teaching career in Mitchell. She was so patient with me trying to figure out insurance and other financial issues. She always took the time to visit with me and ask about my life. I know how much she loved her family. Our prayers are with you.

So sorry to hear about your Mom, Chris. I can still see Koda running over and sitting with your Mom while I mowed the yard. And then, of course, all of the wonderful “garage” visits, sitting and getting some sun, laughing and simply enjoying the day together. We will always cherish the wonderful memories we have of our neighbor and friend and will miss her dearly 🤍 May God comfort all of you in the sad time.
