Sharon Lee (Hall) Wilson, age 78, passed away peacefully March 20, 2020. She was born July 28, 1941 in Evansville Indiana. She was a graduate of North High School. She married Donald R Wilson in August 1959, who preceded her in death in 2005. She worked several years at Deaconess Hospital.
Sharon engaged in many simple pleasures in her life. She enjoyed watching birds and other wild life. She was an avid reader and also loved to play weekly games of scrabble or dominoes. She was as competitive as they come, and made no apologies for it. Sharon was well known in the neighborhood she and Don lived and raised their family for over forty years, for her strong will and straightforward personality traits that live on in each of her children today.
It could be said that some of the happiest times in her life were when she and Don were camping or spending most weekends at their river camp with family and friends.
Later in life Sharon found a welcome home at New Life Ministries church.
She was recently asked by one her children what the best moment of her life was. She replied “The day I got married.” Then she asked what she felt her greatest accomplishment in life was. She replied “Easy, my children and grandchildren.”
She will be deeply missed by everyone that knew and loved her.
Along with her husband, preceding her in death are her parents Elmer and Dorothy Hall; her beloved daughter in law Sherra Wilson; and her lifelong side kick and sister-in-law Judy Wilson.
Sharon is survived by her children Robin (Bill) Hogan, Rick Wilson, Susan (Tom) Cravens; her grandchildren Kyle (Stacie) Clark, Taylor Cravens, Lee Cravens, Jeremy Hogan and Lindsey Ingram; five great grandchildren; her loving sister Donna Herron; her devoted friends Linda Wilson and Linda Basham; and several nieces and nephews.
The family would like to sincerely thank Dr. Eric Jackson and staff for the many years of dignified care, compassion and kindness shown to our mother. It goes without saying that she thought the world of her “Dr. J”.
A private service will be held at Sunset Funeral Home.
The family asks in lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to any local animal shelter in Sharon’s name.
