Sharon grew up outside of Columbus, Ohio where she later attended The Ohio State University. She followed her passion and career in cosmetology which took her to Savannah, Georgia, where she met Frank. She later enjoyed her work as a gemologist until her retirement.
Sharon loved living on the Cape enjoying sunset walks, her flower gardens in bloom, and celebrating each day with cherished friends. She was a creative and passionate person who appreciated “every moment” in life, as well as shell fishing at the beach, coffee with a friend and entertaining. Most of all, she delighted in being present with loving her family, especially her grandchildren.
