I am deeply saddened by Sharon’s passing. She had so many great attributes and she will be missed by more people then she probably ever realized.

Whenever I would run into Sharon, she always had the warmest, biggest smile, a firm hug and it was like she couldn’t be happier to see you.

She was a very loving mother and wife. She was truly devoted to her family and was willing to make any sacrifice for them.

Sharon was one of the hardest working people I have ever known. She had a strong sense of commitment and duty. I always admired her work ethic.

There is a huge void in the world now. One that will never be filled for Sharon was an original.

My prayers and love go to her family. May God give them strength, healing and peace.

I know that heaven has a special place for Sharon.

And when I think of her I will always smile as I will think of her warmth, smile and laugh.

Jay, my heart hurts for you and your family..I enjoyed working with her at the Moose, she was truly a wonderful friend to everyone who knew her.


Jay, I am so very sorry to hear about Sharon. I first met her stocking shelves in the Health and Beauty Aids at Grandpas. We laughed so hard and so often during the day. When she became a manager she was always fair and one of my favorite bosses. You and the boys have my deepest sympathy.

Jay and family, Chris and I are so sorry to hear about your lost. Sharon was by far the kindest person we met. Sharon was right there for my husband and me when I couldn’t be there to get Chris to the hospital for his knee surgery. She was his support person as she too went threw the same type of surgery, coaching him in his recovery. Sharon drew us in as her and Jay’s friend as if we knew the two of them forever, the many laughs we had while setting at the nail salon getting our Pedi’s while all the while having that glass of wine to relax us even more. I will forever remember all the good times we had together and the fun we always had at the Moose as Lodge sisters. Sharon you were one in a million. Chris and I will see you again someday and all I want to hear is that infection laugh with the words, What took you so long”. lol. Love and miss you Sharon until we meet again.

Dee and Chris Andrews, Belleville , Illinois, 62220
