Sharon was born in Frankfort, Indiana, the only child of Mildred and William Davidson. She attended Frankfort Schools and graduated from Frankfort High School. In her younger days she was known to be a vivacious, intelligent and accomplished woman. While caring for her family including raising her children, she also built a career of "Women in Construction" while also utilizing and maintaining her real estate brokers license. She worked and played hard accomplishing great things while helping and loving others.
Sharon enjoyed being a part of her community and Church. She was known as having a love language with food, growing healthy vegetables and beautiful flowers. And she assisted many families in her community with networking resources and food assistance. She also shared her knowledge of food and recipes with others. She was known among the White River Christian Church Food Pantry volunteers and patrons.
As her illnesses progressed Sharon cherished the individuals that made up her teams. They all became a part of her family as they supported her so she could remain in her home. Her Traditions Hospice Team and her Home Helpers Team were with her as she took her final breath.
To all who knew her, Sharon was a very special person. She was a friend, a neighbor, a mother and a grandmother and will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her. She leaves behind cherished and lasting memories with her grandchildren: Kristofer Deutsch, Stephani Deutsch, Britany Hensley, Meleena Hensley and Ava Hensley plus seven great-grandchildren with more to come. Memories of her will live on.
