BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Sharon Jarboe (Craddock), 72, of Melbourne, Florida, passed away peacefully on June 5, 2023. She was born on May 4, 1951, in Framingham, Massachusetts, to the late Dorothy Kennon and Hugh Craddock.
Sharon was a devoted and nurturing mother whose exceptional organizational skills enriched the lives of those around her, particularly her beloved family.
Her unwavering dedication was exemplified through her career at the U.S. Army Natick Soldier Systems Center, where she tirelessly served the soldiers of the United States Army.
Sharon took great pride in her role, ensuring that soldiers remained focused and on track. To those who were privileged to work with her, you know the spirit of “HOOAH” she embodied.
She is survived by her loving son, Sean Jarboe, and his wife, Colleen of Medway, Massachusetts, who will forever cherish her memory. Sharon’s grandsons, Mason and Cooper, brought immense joy to her life, and she adored being their doting grandmother.
She also leaves behind her dear sister, Heather Parker, and her husband, Richard of Grafton, Massachusetts. In addition, Sharon will be fondly remembered by her nephews, Jason Parker of Marlborough, Massachusetts, and Adam Parker of Grafton, Massachusetts, as well as her brother Charles Sapp and his wife Dorothy of Nashua, New Hampshire.
After more than 35 years of dedicated service at the Natick Labs (U.S. Army Natick Soldier Systems Center), Sharon retired from the federal government. She was a shining example of commitment and loyalty. Sharon was a graduate of Nipmuc High School, where she laid the foundation for her future accomplishments.
