Sharon was our sounding board, giver of advice, our rock and listener. We’d all vent to her and knew we’d find answers to any problem nothing was ever too big or small for her to solve. Above all Sharon loved her family and friends. She loved spending time with them having frequent visitors and social events. She traveled extensively preferring to ride the 4-wheeler all over the Colorado Rockies with friends and family. She loved crocheting, gardening, staying fit, hanging out with her grandchildren and taking pictures of her loved ones.
