I offer my sincere condolences to members of Sharon's family in this their time of sorrow and grief now. I know Sharon was a wonderful person and a fine mom and
wife to the family. I was a classmate of hers in the 1959 SVHS class of 52. She was the smartest person in the class I remember. I had talked with Sharon several times over the years, when we visited the Sheraton Hotel on company business there. She was very helpful on any question I ever had too. She now goes to a place with our Lord forever in peace and joy. Dennis R. Drake

I always loved working with Sharon at the hotel and talking to her. She is a dear friend that will be missed by me and many others. The most important thing was she was ready to meet her savior Jesus when the time came. Prayers for her family for peace and comfort at this most difficult time. Miss you Sharon, Mary

My sister Karen ( Anderson ) Roberds graduated with Sharon as well as my husband Edward Flick. I graduated with her brother Jerry Cynthia(Anderson) Flick. I have good memories of the family. May God Bless all the family in their time of sorrow.

Cynthia ( Anderson ) Flick Apr 28 2020 12:00 AM

I have always known that mom had friends everywhere and was loved so much, but didn't fully realize it until she got sick. Over the past month, so many have reached out to me to let me know what she meant to them and to get updates on her condition. She was unique and special and totally lovely in every way and will be missed so much.

It seems I have known my Aunt Sharon almost my entire life. I didn't realize there was only 5 years difference in our ages. We used to see a lot of each other in younger days. I last saw her at work in the little shop at the hotel near the casino. It was as if we hadn't been apart for long at all. I sure miss her already. May God continue to comfort all her family.
