Sharon received her education in Elgin and Neligh, graduating from Neligh High School. You always knew where you stood with Sharon.
Her approach was basic and straight forward.
She enjoyed crafts and her family were recipients of her many quilts.
Sharon also loved to cook and could whip up enough fried chicken to feed the neighborhood.
