Sharon retired from Ocean State Job Lot in 2014 and then moved with her husband, Jim to Inman, S.C in 2015. She loved and cherished her family and friends, especially playing cards with friends. Her flower gardens were her passion, always experimenting with new types and colors. She also enjoyed shopping on QVC, and family could always expect to receive those boxes around Christmas. She enjoyed the holidays the most, and getting to together with the family. And in true spirit, took joy in giving rather than receiving. She enjoyed Christmas so much in fact, the television was always on a Christmas show, usually Hallmark Channel. Watching and listening to everything she could about the holiday.
