Sharon Lee Loudenslager asked the best and she gave her best. She was a mentor and friend, a counselor and confidante; from the moment she met you, you became her friend and long-time friends became her family. Her vibrant personality drew the attention of everyone, the party began when Sharon walked into the room. She was warm, open and bubbly, with a magnetic personality and ageless beauty. Overall, what made Sharon the person she was being a sister, wife, mother, grandmother and friend.

During Sharon’s final years her family was always there to provide care and comfort. We are most grateful for family friends who were Physicians and Nurses that her children worked with to aide in her care. The care, comfort from her friendships and family made her last days joyful. There where so many more… thank you so much for whoever helped prayed or visited her while she was in rehab or the hospital.
