her paintings. Sharon also designed the web sites of OKBits, CCOGS,

photographs, and she was amazed that people would send her the
originals to work on. Sharon loved her grandchildren: Kristi, Cody,Justin, Taylor, Ashley, Skylar, Van and Marggie. Her face would glow
when she talked of her grandchildren. Sharon was a member of the

wherever she was needed.
