Our mother was also well known for the Wilson’s Dairy Dome where she made the best homemade bar-b-que sandwich in town, and her apple pie was to die for. Sharon’s favorite season was Easter. She said, ‘she loved all the colors and the best part of Easter was dressing us up and attending church.’ With so many school events, plays, rehearsals and sport events, it amazes us that she attended all and never missed one.
You could find Sharon and her sisters traveling on a yearly bases, to all their favorite states-not keeping them apart.
While in Arizona, she picked us hobbies of playing bingo, and if you knew Sharon, you would know she couldn’t wait until it was her turn to be the caller. She loved her bingo. Although we were miles apart, our mother was never alone. We all shared our visits with her showering her with love that she deserved. Now she is being showered with GODS love in eternal glory with Jesus our Lord and Savior. Rest in peace Ma, We love you to the moon and back.
