July 7, 1943 - August 9, 2020

The family is planning a private service and anticipates a larger service when it is safe for us to all be together again. Sharon left us with the following thoughts: “My career and my life have been about bringing the best of health care, business and education together to create a work environment where patients and staff are valued and clinicians can practice as they are taught. I can never repay the Michigan State College of Nursing enough for the education that I received and the doors that that education opened for me throughout my life. But, imagine the possibilities if we each gave something back. Just imagine the difference that we would make! Just imagine!” To make a lasting gift in Sharon’s memory you are invited to remember in her name the following organizations: The Michigan State University College of Nursing, St. Mark’s Episcopal Church of Grand Rapids, Grand Rapids Chapter of the American Heart Association, or Hospice Care of Southwest Michigan, c/o the funeral home.
