Sharon was a fun friend in High School ! Her and Robert were sweet hearts in High School and eventually married and had a great union until she passed away from Pancreatic Cancer. Fly with the angels Sharon !

Sharon was just as lovely as a grandmother as she was a teenager at Waltrip.  I know her family will miss her kindness and strength in the coming years.

I am shocked and sad to learn of Sharon's death. We went through Garden Oaks together, where we were great friends. She had the best slumber parties ever. Her mother was as sweet as Sharon and kept the snacks plentiful and allowed us to to stay up all night telling ghost stories. After going to Hamilton, I was happy to be with her again at Waltrip. As an adult, we ran into each other at a neighborhood Mexican restaurant. We were always glad to see each other and enjoyed catching up and reminiscing.

Sharon's dad and my dad went through WWII together, from Normandy to Germany.  I remember warmly of going to their house, and her family visiting ours; and how we would spend evenings just playing with simple things as children.  Sharon was a good friend, and I have nothing but really great memories of her.

It is with great sadness and difficulty that I write about Sharon Sheffield (Powell).  Married to my brother for 48 years, Sharon was my "sister" in every sense of the word.  She was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last July and the family had dreaded the day when the Lord would take her home.  We know she is in a better place with no more pain, no more tears, no more sorrow, spending eternity in the loving arms of Jesus Christ, but we sure miss her.  A wonderful mom and grandmother (Mimi to her three beautiful grandchildren), Sharon was the center, "the glue," as daughter Kelli described her, holding her family together in such a loving way.  

I have so many fond memories: we had babies close together, so they remain close cousins with their families too.  We spent holidays together, played together, and traveled together.  The most memorable trip was when we went to Rome in 2011.  The six of us: Bob and Sharon, my sister Dianne and her husband John, and my husband Davie and I spent twelve days in Italy and had a wonderful time. The stories I could tell, oh my, such fun in happier days.

We have managed to get through Easter and Mother's Day this year with a large hole in our family, but there will be difficult times ahead and we will need your prayers. She was such a special person.

There was something really special about Sharon.  I doubt I could describe it in words.  She was a class act.  I wish I had known her better but I'm fortunite to have some great memories during the few years I knew her. 

One of the many things about Sharon that really stands out in my mind was her smile.  It was so memorable because it was so genuine.  Every one who ever met her knows what I'm talking about. 

After graduation I never saw Sharon again but I have no doubt that the goodness of her loving soul transcended the fraities of her body.  It was really sad to hear of her passing but she lives forever in the memories of her family and those of us lucky enough to have known her.
