Sharon will be remembered for her caring heart, funny stories, and witty sense of humor.

She is also survived by 22 great-grandchildren and one great-great-granddaughter. She is also survived by her brother Richard (Madelyn) Satterlee of Fenwick, MI, sisters-in-law Barb, Nancy and Ruth Ann Satterlee, and in-laws Erma and Larry Feneis, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
