Prior to retirement, she worked with Farm Bureau Insurance in Amory for many years and loved to visit with her customers whom she considered friends. Sharon had a great artistic capability with her handiwork making different kinds of crafts and extended that to her flowers for which she was known for her Christmas Cactuses.
