"My deepest sympathy for Sharon?s family. Prayers for Peace and Comfort. I know you will miss her greatly as will the R-P class of 1968! Sharon did so much for her High School graduating class. It meant so much to her that we would all remain close. I know she had the same goals for her family, she loved you all so much and spoke of you often. I know she is now enjoying the reward of Comfort and rest she so richly deserves. She?s held in God?s comforting hands. Classmate, David Peterson"

"Sharon was such a good friend to my sister, Mary Hollar. They were H.S. classmates and had reconnected a few years ago. When Mary sold her house, Sharon was a Godsend to my husband and me. She did all the work we couldn't do. Then Mary was able to help Sharon prepare her house to sell. They enjoyed each other's company. Sharon had a heart of gold. She will be greatly missed by so many. We pray for comfort and peace for Sharon's family and friends!"

Cousin Chris Osterman wrote on Jan 3, 2021:

"Sharon had stopped for a visit with me the last few years during the summer. Her last visit was short in August as I was headed out for a family gathering. She had a granddaughter with her and Sharon loved to talk of the Biegalle Farm. Many fond memories for her and sisters spending time there through the years growing up. Sharon wanted to share the history that she knew of that time. I could see in August Sharon was struggling with her health but it didn't stop her from enjoying life. My sympathy and prayers are with all her family. Times being the way they are I will not be attending the service. Sorry. "
