  6. Craig, Bill and Spencer,
    I don’t need to tell you three, your Mom was ONE IN A MILLION; God just happened to bless you with her and place Sharon as a young woman in Greenview. . .where she made a huge impact. Like others whose lives she touched, Sharon not only fed me any chance she got. . .but also just watching her dash about doing her thing was inspiring. She didn’t mess around wasting time on being unproductive or making excuses- she was doer! Hopefully present community minded individuals will step up and take their place with Sharon in mind. Very Sincerely, Rodney Dimmick

  8. So sorry for the loss of your mother. She was a wonderful lady. I enjoyed working with her in the AMVETS auxiliary as her secretary when she was the president. She will be missed.

  9. My prayers to all! Sharon was an amazing woman and showed exuberance and strength in everything she did.

  10. To Sharon‘s sons and families: On behalf of Marbold Farmstead, we offer our sincere condolences on the loss of such a kind, dedicated, dynamic woman as your mom.
    She was always willing to give of herself to make sure that others had what they needed. She had a world of friends because of her giving, humorous, thoughtful nature.
    She was truly an angel on earth and now she joins those in the hereafter. We’ll miss her, but nothing can extinguish the bright light she left!! H. M. F. A. Greenview

  11. My heart is hurting at Sharon’s passing…..She was a good friend to me and I will greatly miss her. Prayers for her family and friends to help going forward without her. Sharolyn

  12. I have so many memories of Sharon, as I was a member of the Schurman family for many years. She was always so much fun and it was a joy to see her come through the door of the Schurman house. My dog actually bit Sharon, and although we had to go to the ER in Springfield, she was a super good sport about it and didn’t blame my dog at all. (Thanks Sharon). She was just a good person and will be missed by so many. She also gave rides to my mother, who served senior meals in Athens. I am so sad to hear this news. I hope she and Pat are sitting on a porch somewhere having a cocktail. They both deserve it!

  13. Prayers and love to all of you feeling the loss of Sharon. She was a wonderful supporter of Joel Hall Dancers & Center and we will dance our next performance in her honor.

  14. Landon and Carson you have my condolences. Sending prayers for all of the Davis family.

  15. I am sorry for your loss.

  16. Was very saddened to learn of Sharon’s passing. What a loss for her family, friends and the community of Greenview. Sharon was always ready to help and work hard for whatever community cause was at hand. I enjoyed working alongside her and watch her in her element. She is a great example of a servant. She touched many lives. Please accept my sincere sympathy for the loss of your Mother. She will be missed.

  17. Bill, I am so sorry to hear this. Losing a parent is so hard. My condolences to you and your family.

  18. So sorry to hear your loss, Bill. Take care!


  19. Bill and family,

    Sending you love and comfort. Anyone can see from this and the tributes on facebook that Sharon was very loved and gave that love back. I hope you and your family find peace in your memories with her.
