  1. A beautiful woman who loved her God above all and he was first in her life.
    She loved her family and always said kind things.
    In the period of time I knew her she was so gracious and kind. She had a wealth of Bible knowledge and she shared freely with us. She enjoyed spending time and studying with her church family as often as she was able. She had the heart of a servant.
    We at the Church of Christ at Inola will miss her presence and I will miss her beside me on my pew. We love you Sharon. CMC

      Thank you for the kind words about Sharon. She treasured your friendship. Thank you for all you did for Sharon, especially the hours of companionship and care you provided to her at the hospital during the times we couldn’t be there ourselves.

        Reading all these post that my Inola church family have written. Sharon was very loved, and we miss her greatly. We rejoice that she has the hope of a home in heaven. We were blessed with the time that we had with her. She was the sweetest and always had a smile for you. It made me smile to see my picture with Sharon in her memorial video! We were at the Friday Night Opry. We pray that God comforts your family. <3

    Sharon was the sweetest kind lady. I met her when she started attending the church of Christ in Inola OK. She was bubbly, friendly and made friends so easily. She took up a place in the pew near me and always had the biggest smile, greeted everyone, even when she wasn’t feeling very well. Her love for God radiated from her. I now have a hole in my heart and her place at church feels empty…she is already missed so much.

  3. I didn’t know Sharon for very long. But long enough to know I’m going to miss seeing her in Ladies Bible Class and worship. I’ll remember her always as a friend and sister in Christ who would share much about God’s word. She had a lot of knowledge about essential oils too! I’m sorry I didn’t get the chance to hear her sing the song she wrote or other songs Karaoke style! She had a contagious smile. She had a sweet soft spoken personality. She’d do anything for anyone if she could, but her health prevented her from doing many things and hanging out with her Christian family. Until we meet again, Sharon 💜

      Thank you for the kind words about Sharon. I am Sharon’s daughter-in-law. Her music will be incorporated in her funeral service. If you can’t make it in person, you can watch online through the link on this page. If you would like a copy of her CD, let Bill Keele know and I will send one with him for you.
