Sharon Lynn Hagerman of Amarillo, Texas left her earthly body to be with her Lord and Savior on Sunday March 13, 2022.  One of her last wishes was to go to church but the Lord took her to her heavenly home.  Sharon was blessed to be in her own home surrounded by family and friends at the time of her peaceful departure to Heaven.  Born May 28, 1941, in Amarillo, TX to parents, Alice E. Milligan and J. Lee Milligan who both preceded her in death.

Sharon met the love of her life, Swanson Hagerman, in study hall at Amarillo High in 1958.  On their first date, instead of going to the picture show, Sharon asked Swanson to go to church with her.  Sweetie, as Swanson referred to her all her life, invited him to church where Swanson met God and was Saved, taking Jesus into his heart forever.  Swanson’s salvation and their joint love for the Lord guided them together on their journey through life.

Sharon and Swanson were married on June 5, 1959.  Their deep-rooted faith in the Lord set the foundation in which they raised their two children which has been passed to their five grandchildren and seven great grandchildren. It all started with the first date at church.  The two children, five grandchildren and seven great grandchildren are very thankful they did not start out with the picture show.

Sharon’s gift and passion was pleasing others with her good cooking and hospitality.  Someone was always over for Sunday dinner and fellowship.  Sharon was a homemaker when her children were young and later owned and operated Martha’s Midtown Bed and Breakfast.  The Bed and Breakfast fulfilled her love for serving others and her absolute pleasure of meeting new people and introducing them to the Lord by her actions and her words.  Martha’s Bed and Breakfast was the perfect name as Sharon took on another nickname of Martha from God’s word.  Sharon, Sweetie, and Martha was always looking to serve others and she loved every minute of it.  Sharon was truly loved by everyone she came across in life and she loved them back.

Sharon was a member of Grace Baptist Church in her early life and moved over to Faith Baptist around 1970.  In 2013, Sharon and Swanson found a new church home at First Baptist in Amarillo.  Although Sharon loved all the friendships established in her previous church homes, upon joining First Baptist, Sharon told Swanson “Why didn’t we start here in the first place?”  Sharon loved her church families.

Sharon will be most remembered for her pure servant heart, endless generosity, ability to encourage and love others unconditionally, and her admiration of her family, especially her sweetheart for life, on this earth and for eternity, Swanson.

Sharon is survived by her Husband Swanson Hagerman, her two children Darrel Hagerman of Spring, Texas (wife Paula Diane Schniederjan Hagerman), Kimberly Nall of Carrollton, Texas (husband Will), as well as five grandchildren Mindy Whitaker of Houston, Carly Wallace of Burleson, Texas, Kayla Nall of Carrollton, Texas, Milly Hollek of Conroe, Texas and Darrel Nall of Carrollton, Texas, and seven great-grandchildren Dawson Wallace (13) of Burleson, Jules Wallace (8) of Burleson, Dani Whitaker (5) of Houston, Max Wallace (5) of Burleson, Easton Hollek (4) of Conroe, Emma Hollek (2) of Conroe, Ollie Whitaker (2) of Houston with number eight great-grandchild, Baby Hollek due to arrive April 14, 2022.

  1. I will miss seeing Sharon and Swanson walk into the bank hand in hand as they always did after their weekly date at Starbucks. She was a precious lady and we all loved her dearly. Swanson – you will have to keep the tradition of showing off those grandkids pictures.

  2. Sharon was a true “ Sweetie “. She will be remembered for all of her special and endearing qualities 🙏

  3. My Mom tho no longer here on this earth, is waiting for us to join her with our Lord and Savior. I will cherish our time with her here but long for the day when I see her again. Pray for my Dad that God will guide him and comfort him while he lives out his time here without her. He knows he will be with her again in God’s due timing. His work here is unfinished. I am thankful for that.

  4. Swanson, my deepest sympathy to you and your family. You and Sharon were always shining examples of what it means to follow Jesus. I know you will continue sharing the light of Christ. God bless you brother!

  5. Thoughts and prayers of comfort are with all friends and family. Sharon was an amazing lady and one of my sister’s closest friends. We always enjoyed swim time and fellowship at Sharon and Swansons place. You will be missed, Buddie Stewart- Scotty’s brother

  6. Sharon was truly a joy to be around, as was watching her and Swanson love each other through every moment alive. A sweeter couple I have not met. Once you made friends with this couple, you were friends for life. I truly believe Sharon loved everyone she ever met, and never forgot them once she knew them, that was our experience after my husband and I spoke our vows by their beautiful pool. Prayers of comfort for Swanson and the entire family.

  7. My Prayers are with her wonderful family, she was an inspiration to us all, swimming in the summers at her pool and the fellowship we all shared, she was an amazing woman of God. We went to Faith Baptist with them and more recently to First Baptist Church, she will truly be missed however she is with her Lord. I agree I can’t imagine a World without her. Michele and Robert Wright

  8. We are praying for you and your family Swanson. Sharon was such a example of the true love of Christ. I am glad I was able to have her around my children. She will be missed.

  13. Our condolences. She was a wonderful woman. I cleaned her house a few times. But most of all she loved talking, she loved to tell me about her family. Oh and the love she had for Mr. Swanson, I admired their love for each other. God truely knew what he was doing putting these 2 people together. She will forever be missed by so many. Everyone she came into contact with will always have an imprint of her. She touched so many lives especially mine! She taught me so much. We will continue to pray for peace for the family as they go through this difficult time.
