Sharon’s outgoing and friendly demeanor was apparent to everyone she met! She opened her heart to everyone and most especially to children. Whether it was treating every young person she met like family, volunteering in kindergarten classes, or helping to set up and run the Catholic Charities Kid’s Pantry, Sharon was dedicated to helping children feel cared for and loved.

Sharon enjoyed working at the Kingston High School for 28 years and working on her graduating class reunion committee.
