Sending my sympathy and prayers to all. Sharon was a very special lady, always had a smile for everyone she met. A very special friend, and I will miss her!
Sharon was just such a happy woman and made time in the fellowship hall to talk to everyone near her. Her extended family will hold her memory close and share them at her service. Her smile in this picture shows she truly loved life and her legacy will help us too.
Miss Sharon was such a sweet lady. She will be missed by many, and took a piece of my heart with her.
A lovely lady of faith. I shall miss her

Sharon and I had been friends for many years, when we lived in Springfield and went to the Third Presbyterian Church singing in the choir. She had introduced me to her brother Phil in which we were married sometime later. She and I both worked at Ozark airlines where she had met her husband Ralph. We had a lot of good times working together. She is at peace and is now with her father, mother, and son. Our sympathies to the family.
Condolences to all of Sharon’s family at this time of their loss. Sharon was a great neighbor, always concerned and very giving, especially with her grapefruits. Always had plenty to share with us. She will be deeply missed in our neighborhood. All our love, Jason and Sheryl
Sharon was a sweetheart with a smile on her face at every zoom bible study and at church. We will miss her. So sorry for your loss. Van and Janet Flournoy
We will all miss Sharon. She was a faithful participant in Bible Study, even when we had to meet on Zoom. She always had a smile and offered encouragement to other members. We know she is at peace with her Lord.
She was definitely, one of my girls. I will miss her.
Sharon will be so missed. She was a strong woman. May God bring peace to her and her family.
