  As a young girl, Sharon was a talented twirler, earning the opportunity to lead the Thanksgiving parade in Houston. As an adult, Sharon worked successfully in the banking industry, working her way up to business banking with Wells Fargo. She was also employed at Community State Bank and several banks in Houston during her career. When she had free time, she enjoyed sewing, cooking, baking, watching her grandchildren, being around her family, being a homemaker, and watching movies. Her favorite movie was Lonesome Dove. Second best for her were all of the John Wayne movies. Sharon loved mornings and a good cup of coffee. She also loved lilies because they grow back every year. She will be remembered best by her no-nonsense life advice for family and friends, her willingness to help anyone in need, and her beautiful smile.
