  1. I am heartbroken to hear this. Sharon crossed my mind just a week ago or so when I drove by her street. I had the pleasure of working with her on the night shift at NWTHS. We were the dream team and we were always laughing.

  2. I didn’t know this beautiful woman, but I knew her son, James. She must have been a treasure in order to raise great kids. Thinking of you, James, and sending love to you and your family.

  4. What a shock to hear of one of my favorite cousins passing! We had so many fun times growing up! Especially at Mamma’s and Daddy Bo’s house!! We stayed up all night and washed ALL of their dishes!! I treasure all of the memories. How I wish I could talk to her just one more time. Charlene and Janet you have truly been dedicated sisters. She was truly blessed. Our deepest condolences to the entire family. She was so proud of all of you and loved you dearly!! I can see her hugging her mom and dad as she walks free of pain!!
    Love you all!!! Sylvia and Dennis Ingrim
