Rest in Peace Sharon, I couldnt ask for a more wonderful mother in law. Until we meet again.
In memory of Sharon Kay Himes:
I remember when we first met at the junior NCO Club at Fort Ord, California in the late 1950s. I best remember Sharon as the loveliest, sweetest, kindest, and most endearing member of the Women’s Army Corp’s WAC Detachment. These were and still remain just a few of her many wonderful mid-western (Iowa) attributes that made her a darling of a wife and very caring mother of our creatively talented son, Richard, and of course, our equally talented daughter, Rochelle. I shall always love Sharon, today, tomorrow, and forevermore with all my love and dear memories of Sharon…. Allen Woodside
Rochelle and family, I am sorry to read of your loss. I enjoyed knowing your mom
Glad she was my friend we played a lot of cribbage and had lots of fun doing it. Will miss you ,fly high in heaven Sharon.
Sharon was a wonderfully loving, generous spirit who not only treated me like a mother when mine was so far away but took in many of her son's friends growing up. She had a lot of spirit and a great sense of humor. I can't believe I can never see her over coffee again in her house, which was always a warm place to visit or talk to her again about a book I think she'd like. Although I'm glad her suffering is at an end, the world is a darker place without her in it.
"Nannie" as my daughter called her was the BEST child care provider around. RIP Sharon and fly high. Sorry I didn't make it to see you 1 last time,,that's on me.
