Sharon was born Feb. 18, 1949, in Lawton, to L.B. Burnett and Pauline Etter Burnett. Sharon lived in Lawton during her childhood and attended Lawton Public Schools. She
married James Edward Brown March 15, 1969, and moved to Indianapolis.
After her husband's death on Aug. 24, 1973, she moved to Kentucky. Sharon
married Wayne Taylor Crawford on Feb. 11, 1978, and they had been happily
married for the past 32 years. Sharon and Wayne moved to Oklahoma in 1981
and had lived in Guthrie for the past 25 years. Sharon was an accomplished
artist. Some family members have the good fortune of owning some of her
paintings. Sharon also designed the web sites of OKBits, CCOGS, Comanche
and Cotton Counties, as well as her Aunt Margie's and her own website.
Sharon loved to work on restoring old and damaged 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 original Etter Family Reunion Committee that organized
the Etter Reunion in 1986. She would decorate the Honor Table and helped
wherever she was needed.
She is survived by her husband, Wayne Crawford, of the home; daughter and husband, Kimberly and John Koumbis, of Mustang; son, Jimmy Jon Brown, of Guthrie; eight grandchildren: Kristi Bahavar, of Mustang; Cody Bahavar, of Edmond; Justin Brown, of Guthrie;
Skylar Koumbis, of Muskogee; Taylor Brown and Ashley Marcin, of Tennessee;

Geneva Carpenter, of Lawton; Kathy Lair, of Tulsa; Don Burnett, Stuart,
Fla.; Melvin Burnett, of Cache; David Burnett, of Dallas; Glen Burnett,
Crowley, Texas; and Johnny Burnett, of Elgin.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her stepfather, Earl Golemon; her first husband, Jim Brown; and a grandson, James Edward Brown.
