Sharon was a wonderful co-worker and friend. She was especially kind and encouraging during the time of the adoption of our son. She often sent cards and notes of encouragement. It was a pleasure to spend a few visits with her at The Elizabeth House. We know she’s home in Heaven and has a new body, free of pain and illness. We look forward to seeing her again one day.
Sharon will truly be missed…It was a pleasure to have known and work with her. She can now be at peace as she rest in heaven.

We will truly miss our friend, Sharon. I remember many happy occasions while we were in school lst grade through high school. Sharon shared with us a unique personality and good sense of humor, laughing at her wit many times. We are at peace knowing she is resting in Jesus’ arms today.
I was privileged to befriend Sharon while studying for our degrees at Blue Ridge Community College. We completed our internship together and then moved in different directions as we accepted new jobs. It was such a blessing to me to become reunited through a mutual friend and be able to share and encourage each other through our shared cancer diagnosis journey. May God be especially close to each of you as you grieve her earthly presence, but may we all rejoice at her perfect healing and arrival in her true home with Christ in Heaven.
