Sharon came from a large family, including 11 siblings that were raised on the family farm in Buckland. 9 brothers and sisters preceded her in death. Richard (Mary – Deceased) Elsass and Marjorie (Robert – Deceased) Daugherty survive.
Sharon was the epitome of kindness and love, was a great cook, and could often be found chatting around the kitchen table while visitors partook of her fantastic food. She loved getting together with family. Sharon was a member of the Lima Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses, playing piano at meetings for years, and the only thing she loved more than her family was Jehovah.
A happy, good person that was beloved, Sharon was all of these things and more.
