Sharon grew up in the Jamestown Alliance Church so this is home for her. Sharon's husband, Steven. Their children Andrew (Shilo); Patrick; Stephanie (Jamie); Shandiemarie & Katie  are scattered all across the USA as well as their 12 awesome grandchildren.

Her favorite Scripture is Zephaniah 3:17

"The Lord your God is with you,

He is mighty to save.

He will take great delight in you,

He will quiet you with His love,

He will rejoice over you with singing." (NIV)

She loves to sing (even though it is a joyful noise) and make people laugh.

Baseball (NY Mets), crocheting, reading and gardening are all part of her hobbies.
