Sharon was a diehard Vikings fan. She loved camping with her husband and faithful companions, Bailey and Harper. She loved fishing and was recently able to catch some big crappies on her last fishing adventure. She loved her quiet time at home, sitting on her deck drinking her coffee, looking at her flowers and enjoying the landscape. Sharon will be so missed by all who knew and loved her.
