Sharon worked at Uihlein Mercy Center (Elderwood) for many, many years as a CNA and as a private home health aide prior to her early retirement. During her career and retirement, Sharon made many life-long friends along the way. When you first met Sharon it was an instant like, she was a quiet, down to earth, and quirky woman that you just fell in love with. She enjoyed Sunday rides to Vermont and early bird lawn sales on Saturdays. She loved spending time with her family and Saturday nights with Lee at the American Legion listening to country music. She used to wake Julianne, Savannah, Sean & Braiden up early in the morning to show them the dolphins jumping in the ocean (when on vacation in Virginia Beach.) They also said how she used to bring them down to the beach to collect sea shells together. She also loved her (once upon a time) breakfast & dinner phone calls with her sister Shirley. That was the highlight of her day. One of her newest and most loved adventures was with her great granddaughter Autumn who had become her Saturday date partner, spending the day going wherever Autumn wanted to go, shopping, riding her scooter in a parking lot or stopping at Teddy's in Bloomingdale to get their favorite ice cream. They always came back with lots of laughs and memories to share.
