I didn't have any classes with Sharon, but I sat next to her for 4 years in Homeroom. She signed my Yearbook as...Don, To the sweetest kid in Home Room. Always stay that way and you're sure to attract many more friends. With graduation near and when we're tossed out into that cruel world, I hope you have a great future ahead. All I can say is good luck and God Bless. Remember me always.....Sharon.......Sharon, I will always remember you. Thank you for being my friend ❤.

Sharon was my lifelong friend. We lived in the same area of town and attended kindergarten at Plunb School together through 6th grade, then on to Oakland Park School for Junior High, then Streator High School. we were in the same home room all 4 years of high school and remained friends in adulthood. I remember her fixing my hair as we stood in line to get our school pictures taken in 7th grade. This demonstrated her love of fixing hair which was her plan from early on. She succeeded in that plan and had her own beauty shop in her home for many years while raising her two beautiful daughters. Sharon was Maid of Honor at my wedding. She had many health problems in recent years, but always had a ready smile and a contagious laugh! I will miss her very much, she was a wonderful, loving friend. No doubt she is resting in the arms of Jesus. 💈✂️💟
