Always one to help others, whether chauffeuring a homebound friend to a doctor’s appointment or cutting someone’s hair for a special occasion, she will be greatly missed by countless friends and family members who were blessed to know and love her.
Sharlene knew no strangers. She touched the lives of many people with a smile and her generous heart.
