Sharon was devoted to her family and was passionate about serving others. She was gifted with many talents and enjoyed sharing them in service to her Lord and Savior. She was a gifted musician and seamstress. Sharon participated in a sewing group at her church that would make quilts to be gifted to the boys residing at the Boys Ranch Town in Edmond, OK, so that each young man would have a special quilt of their own. She also was generous in sharing her handmade quilts with many members of her family and special friends. Sharon taught Sunday School and had a special love for the members of her classes and thought of them as extended members of her family. Because of her love for young people, she enjoyed baking cookies for youth group activities and summer camps.
