Sharon Kay was born to Charles & Libbie Dufek of Hemingford, Ne and grew up on their family ranch - farm operation north of town. Sharon grew up enjoying tagging along behind her brother Dallas whom she looked up to in many ways. Sis (Dallas’s pet name for his little sister) whom he loved to prank, one of his favorites was getting her to climb up on top of the barn as well as on top of the windmill. Then he would holler for their mom and say “look what sis has done now!”
Dwain and Sharon met during their junior year of highschool, Dwain an Alliance Bulldog and Sharon a Hemingford Bobcat. They just happened to play hooky from school on the same day and both ended up at the Alliance City Park, Dwain cruising up in his 1954 tan & white Buick Century and Sharon pulling in with her maroon and white 1954 Buick Special. The cars attracted them to each other, and the rest is history.
Dwain and Sharon were united in marriage on Sept. 25th, 1955. They began their life together in Key West FL. while Dwain was stationed there with the US Navy. Life brought them back to Nebraska to the Sutton Buggypole Ranch where they resided until 2003 when they retired and moved into Oshkosh.
Sharon’s pride and joy were her family and home. She enjoyed working with her flowers in the yard, growing large vegetable gardens & canning her bounty. She loved to bake and cook for family and friends. In her quiet moments she loved reading. Sharon loved animals and always had a pet that became a member of the family.
Sharon is preceded in death by her parents Charles and Libbie, her brother Dallas, and niece Sherry, (Mrs Don Hunter).
Sharon is survived by her husband Dwain of Oshkosh, daughter Shelley (Mark) Lammers of Paxton, son, Doug (Sandy) Sutton of Kearney, grandchildren Heidi (Brian) Meade of Omaha, Brett (Shaun) Morrissey of Fayetteville AR, Mason (Tara) Lammers of Kearney, great- grandchildren Libby, Xander and Phoebe Meade; Bentley and Penelope Morrissey; Tripp and Cohen Lammers and niece Terry (Steve) Bonds of Scottsbluff.
