Married in 1961, she and Louis Richard Terpstra were husband and wife for nearly 60 years. With Lou at her side, Sharon was the devoted mother of Michelle (Troy) Larson, Anne (Fred) Rapp, Andrew Terpstra, Richard (Amy) Terpstra; the proud grandmother of Emily (Cammeron), Nicholas, Darby, Benjamin, Ashlee (Collin), Tyler, Simon, Adeline, Brandon (Erin), Shawn (Lelah), Heather (Zac), Sarah (Philip), Tyler, Emily (Caleb); and the loving great-grandmother of Dylan, Henley, Maya, Sofia, and Hunter.

Sharon was humble and kind, generous and caring, always there for her family and friends with a listening ear and words of encouragement. Love for her family was the center of her life.  Sharon was a joy to all and she will be greatly missed.
