Sharon was one of the first to welcome me tp PHS in 1962. She always had a smile and a kind word. She was a lovely person and my heart goes out to her family.

I have many good memories of Sharon as we grew up together in Brownies, Girl Scouts and 4-H.  She had a nice warm personality reflective of her caring parents.  I always felt comfortable and welcome in their home and will cherish those great childhood memories.  I wish her family strength at her loss.

In sympathy,

Claudia Wanamaker Aldrich
