Sharon enjoyed traveling worldwide.  She was gifted at ceramics where she especially enjoyed creating American Indian pieces.  She enjoyed baking - her family will always remember the wonderful cinnamon rolls she made for them. 

 

Her family would like to give a special Thank You to Heartland Hospice for their wonderful care – especially to Tiffany who took such a personal interest in her and whom she adored.

Special Note from Sharon's Family:

 

Hello Friends. Some of you are aware that Tuesday and Wednesday we have planned Sharon's  Vsitations and Funeral Services.


Due to the ongoing government mandates and the continued risk of the COVID-19 virus, we are no longer allowed to have more than 10 people at the funeral home at one time. With this latest mandate, we must inform our friends that if you were planning on coming to one of the visitations, there could be a wait while others pay their respects to our family.

 

The Orthodox Memorial Service originally scheduled for Tuesday night is therefore cancelled, and the Christian service on Wednesday morning will be held to immediate family only in effort to meet the 10 person rule set forth by our government.


Our friendships and relationships with each of you is very special to us and we understand if you make the decision to stay home during this time to reduce risk to yourself, your family and others from this virus. May God bless each and every one of you and remember to tell those you love what they mean to you every day.
