I remember singing all the old TV show tunes with her after a Road Rally at Ambassador Baptist. Also gave her my son Matthew's crib for her firstborn Matthew.

When I think of her I remember a very sweet woman who I considered one of my dearest friends. So much fun. xx

Appreciated Sharon's ministry along side Pastor Loller's at Ambassador Baptist in Michigan. She had the ability to put you immediately at ease. Her eyes and smile were as warm as her hugs. Loved her voice and found it a thrill to sing trios with her and my mom. Remember her willingness to sing at my parent's 25th wedding anniversary party. She willingly covered for me on the piano too when needed. She knew how to throw herself wholeheartedly into serving

Pastor Jim and family. My sincere condolences on the passing of your wife. Time goes by so quickly in this temporal life and it has been many years since our last meeting at my dinette shop in downtown Scranton. My prayer is that you and your family will be comforted by the love of Christ which passes all understanding. Know this is a time of sorrow but we can rejoice that your wife Sharon now rests securely and joyfully in the bosum of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. May the Lord be with you.

I remember when Sharon and Jim were at my old church Ambassador Baptist in Royal Oak Michigan. The church had a road rally and when we got back Sharon and I were singing old TV show theme songs. (Poor Jim.:) I had given Sharon and Jim my son Matthew's crib when she found out she was expecting her Matthew. Was stunned to hear of her passing. Such a warm,fun,and caring lady one couldn't help but love.

Till we meet again Sharon. You will truly be missed.

Prayers for you Jim and your boys.

Sharon's wedding program and Sharon and me on her wedding day.

Driving down Southwest Highway last week, I noticed Victory Baptist Church. I was on my way to my sister's house who lives in Mokena. I only get to the Chicago area now at Christmas time after my move to Charlotte about 15 years ago. That same day I saw Sharon's obituary posted on Facebook. I taught with Sharon at Schaumburg Christian School, and we became good friends. I remember being sad when she decided to return to Bob Jones to

Jim and family

Words really cannot contain the depth of my emotions at your loss which we are feeling too. Sharon was a great friend, a wonderful example, a loving woman and a faithful follower of Jesus. Her loss is keenly felt by so many. Please know that there are many who share in your grief.

Such a sweet lady. She taught my granddaughter at MMBA a few years ago. Heaven is certainly a lot sweeter!

I remember the first time I met Sharon...We were performing Handles Messiah at Heritage Baptist Church and Dave (our choir director) opened it up to other Baptist churches in the area. While I didn't get to sit by Sharon (as I am a soprano), she sat right next to my mom. I still remember my mom saying what a blessing it was to sit by Sharon, because she had such a lovely alto voice. I will miss her sweet spirit.

It was a blessing to know Sharon. She loved The Lord, her family, and her students. She was so proud of her boys! I'm thankful for the time I was able to work with her.
Jim, Matthew and Andrew are in our prayers.
