For over 46 years, Sheron volunteered her time serving as a minister of Jehovah’s Witnesses. Even after declining health, she continued to dedicate her time and passion to encouraging ones in her ministry work. She also spent a number of years as a lunch server for Elkhart Community School System and especially enjoyed providing lunches in summer for kids in need.
Sheron loved conversation and enjoyed many warm friendships. She enjoyed crafting, sowing many dresses, crocheting many blankets, and making her children home-made toys, including Barbie doll houses, and even a Star Wars canteen. Later in life, she enjoyed vacations with her husband and friends, visiting the Smoky Mountains and cruising on classic Mississippi riverboats.
She enjoyed perfecting her homemade wines and sharing her aged work with family and friends. She had a passion for reading, enjoying sci-fi, mysteries, and the many life experiences found in the Yearbooks of Jehovah’s Witnesses.
