Sharon Kay Wilkinson, daughter of Lester and Loretta (Sparks) Sheets, was born June 14, 1943 at O’Neill. She spent her first 18 years living in O’Neill and attended both St. Mary’s and O’Neill Public schools.
On June 24, 1961, Sharon married Ronald Lee Wilkinson in O’Neill at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church. They lived in Neligh before moving to Elgin.
To this union, three children were born: Ronda, Randy and Tammy.

In addition, beginning in 1987, she owned and operated “Sharon’s Crafts N Stuff”.
Besides being a hard worker, Sharon had many enjoyments. She loved to bowl, play cards and bingo, and her husband Ron got her enthused about racing, which lead her to drive in many powder puff races.
