Sharon had a heart of gold.  She would always help out her family or friends in time of need.  She loved to travel and see the sights, she loved camping, fishing, casinos, bingo (Especially if she won), and her sweets.

She also loved to cook for the Holidays. She would always cook 20+ deserts, even if there were only 4-5 people showing up.  And she would not take no for an answer, she insisted.  She loved long conversations and always a Minnesota Good-Bye.  But most of all she loved spending time with her family and friends.  And she cherished every moment that she got to spend with them.

Sharon you were a mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, aunt, and a friend.  You will be deeply missed in our hearts and we will always have the best of memories.

If tears could build a stairwell

And memories were a lane,

We would walk right up to heaven

And bring you back again.

No farewell words were spoken

No time to say goodbye,

You were gone before we knew it

And only God knows why.

Our hearts still ache in sadness,

And secret tears still flow,

What it means to lose you

No one will ever know.

But now we know you want us

To mourn for you no more,

To remember all the happy times

Life still has much in store.

Since you’ll never be forgotten

We pledge to you today,

A hallowed place within our heart

Is where you’ll always stay.

In Memory of Mom (Sharon)
