Family was most important to Sharon; she was very active with her sons' school and sports. She was a member of the PTA and attended all of their sporting events. For their birthdays, her sons became King of the Day with the tinfoil crowns she made for them, and she cooked their favorite meal, which was the best! She also looked forward to family vacations in the summer and going camping, fishing, and hunting with them. She also enjoyed traveling with her dogs, especially to England, and taking trips with her husband to Bermuda, Mexico, and Tahoe.  

Sharon was a great woman of faith and a member of Immaculate Conception Dardenne for many years. She was always involved in volunteering and serving through the church. She was an Alderman for Dardenne Prairie for many years and was very influential in the town's growth.  

In her younger years, Sharon did competitive dancing and even danced with Jimmy Durante. She was a lady in charge and always knew what she wanted. Sharon will be remembered for her love of family, passion for animals, and warm heart for all. Sharon was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
