Sharon Ann Higginbotham Cain, 51, a loving wife, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend, passed away Saturday, March 19, 2005, at her home in Blanco.
She was born October 22, 1953, in Richmond, the daughter of Mildred and Ira M. Higginbotham, formerly of Rosenberg.
She graduated from Lamar Consolidated High School in 1972 and later moved to Austin where she graduated from the University of Texas, with a BA in Special Education. She taught for almost 20 years in the Austin Independent School District, where she touched the lives of many students, parents, and fellow teachers.

Everyone who knew Sharon was amazed at her positive attitude and strength in the face of adversity. She was truly full of love for everyone around her and gave of herself generously.
