Sharon grew up in Poultney where she graduated high school in 1964 and then attended and graduated from Mary McClellan Hospital School of Nursing. She became an LPN and worked for Sager’s Nursing Home in Fair Haven, Vermont, for many years.

During the spring through late fall, her nights were spent cheering on the Yankees.

Sharon loved her time spent in Florida during the winters and visiting her daughter, son-in-law and grandson in Key West. A lawn chair in the ocean was her favorite place to relax. Most of all, she loved spending time with her family, especially her three grandchildren.
