The most amazing babysitter of the 90s I've ever had. She was the closest thing to a mom I've had other than my real one. I would not be as witty and funny and so many other amazing life skills she instilled in me . She will be missed so much.... I love you mama Sharon.... Some of the best memories and stories I have. Love you Alicia, Ian , and Angie!!!
I remember when I was 13 and I was starting out my makeup journey and she trusted me to do her makeup for her wedding. It was my first time doing wedding makeup, so I was nervous. Sharyn was so kind to me and patient. I’ll never forget doing her makeup and hair for her wedding and how beautiful she was inside and out. I’m so grateful for having the opportunity of doing makeup for someone so kind.
One thing about my nana; she was ALWAYS up to date on her shows. I remember one time when she lived with us, I asked if I could watch a show with her. The show ended up being naked and afraid. I will never forget that day. For good reasons mostly. But also the bad reason being, I learned what a naked man looked like. Thanks nana. Love you always
Sharyn was an amazing woman and a mother like figure to alot of us growing up with Ian. So many great memories and times where she was a person you could just talk to about anything going on in your life. You will be deeply missed and loved forever as your spirit and wisdom will carry on forever
