I learned how to be a teacher from Sharon when I student taught with her at Anson Elementary in 1979. She was soft yet stern as she provided her students with the basics they would need for life. I hope these words from Leo Buscaglia will provide comfort. “I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love.” -Leo Buscaglia
Pat, I was very sorry to hear of Sharon's death. Know that I am praying for you and your family, and Sharon and her family during this difficult times.
Our sympathies to Sharon's family. We knew her in her retirement years as a sweet and gentle lady who would have liked to be more active than her suffering from Lupus allowed. Robert and Linda Moore
What a beautiful happy soul that was one of my junior high buddies in Marshalltown. We loved playing pranks on her sister, and I also car hopped at her dad’s “A and W”. Great family, a great soul, and is forever my friend! So sad she had to suffer with Lupus! Sounds like she did the best she could! That would be Sharon! RiP MY FRIEND!
Sharon was one of the sweetest, stronger people I'd ever met. Kathy and family - thinking of you and your sadness.
Sharon and I were friends sent we met in Jr. High. I send Sympathy and Prayers to her family. You will never forget someone who gave you so much to remember. May the support of family and friends bring comfort and loving memories to Sharon's family.
Sharon & Dave (Berg) introduced me to my future husband, Ron Long, February 1971. We were engaged in March and got married July 24, 1971. Definitely a successful “blind date”. I met & married the love of my life. We were married just 4 months short of 47 years when Ron passed away unexpectedly March 18, 2018. RIP dear friend, Sharon.
Vicki (Weissinger) Long, Lee’s Summit, MO.
