While employed at the American Embassy in Bonn, West Germany, Sharon taught Sunday school and was president of the Women’s Intercollegiate Bowling Congress.

Sharon retired from the City of Cleburne Cemeteries and was a member of the Texas Cemeteries Association.

Sharon is survived by her beloved dog, Halo.

Private services were held at St Fidelis Catholic Church with burial in St Fidelis Catholic Cemetery, Victoria, Kansas.

Sharon was grateful to friends and relatives who were there for her in her time of need, and was especially thankful for Halo’s new “forever” family. God bless you all.
