  5. Sharon was there for me when I began my career as a realtor. At Jim Stewart Realtors., teaching me the ropes. My favorite memory is of her graciousness and sweetness when I was looking for my first home to own when I was around 27 years old. Sharon found the home and didn’t even want to take the commission she deserved in locating a house for me. She was beautiful inside and out. God bless your family with many blessing to

  10. Sharon was the best Mom ever. My childhood was full of happy memories: Lake on weekends, living in the country with our horses & collies. Shopping until we got hungry & stopping for Mexican food. Tacos! Lots of tacos! Trips to San Antonio every summer with the kids, who were her whole world. She adored her family & friends, including clients that became family too. She was very generous. There’s so much to remember. Thank you Mom.

  13. Condolences to Sharon’s family. Mike and I so enjoyed working with her when bought our house that I referred her to others who similarly found her a joy to work with, including my daughter and her husband. She loved talking about her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. No doubt, she will be missed.

  14. Lisa, Sharon loved her family. That is something everyone knew. She was happy to be at your house so that she could have more time with her ‘littles”. She was a very dear friend and almost like a mother to her firiends. She loved to tell me what I should do or shouldn’t do. That is what you do when everyone is a “Kid”. I miss her and our daily phone calls. I will cherish my memories of our time together. So glad she is with Mark and her parents.
    Spread your wings and keep flying high, my friend
    See you later.
