Sharon is preceded in death by her parents; daughter Tammy Ellison; granddaughter Candi Joy; and one infant sister Ann Louise Dalton.
Sharon grew up in rural Barry County, Missouri, where she loved to hunt, trap, and fish with her dad. She had a love of music and was a gifted musician from a noticeably young age. Sharon could sing and play piano, even composing her own music. Often, she would get in trouble with her mother for playing ragtime music on the piano to entertain the neighbor kids instead of practicing her chords and scales or designated piece of music.
Sharon made a living playing piano in various restaurants and clubs, such as The Crescent and the Hilton Hotel. In addition to playing music for a living, she gave her time and musical talent to many church services and functions, weddings, and other events. In the early 90s, Sharon got her real estate license and sold real estate on and around Table Rock Lake for her brother’s company, Eagle Rock Realty. This was an especially good fit because it allowed her to meet and talk to many people from all over the country. Sharon never met a stranger and could outtalk just about anyone.
She loved music, but most of all, Sharon’s greatest love was her family. She mothered anyone who needed it, took in anyone who did not have a place to stay, fed anyone who was hungry, and lent an ear to anyone that needed someone to listen. Sharon had the definition of a “servant’s heart.” She gave of her time, love, and money without a second thought. Faith was the most important thing to Sharon. She was not afraid to share the love of Jesus with anyone, and she led by example, not just by words. Sharon loved all of God’s creations and saw beauty in everything. When the sun shone on the lake, she thought it looked like diamonds. She thought that loons were one of the most beautiful birds and loved their red eyes. She saw God’s humor in the duckbill platypus and would pick thistles because she could see the beauty in what others only saw as a nuisance weed.
