Friends introduced her to the love of her life Chucky on a double date in 1981. They resided in Alexandria until 2000, when they started to build their lives together in Berkeley Springs, West Virginia.

Sharon loved to attend Flyball tournaments in the U.S. and Canada with Kim, she supported the local community of Berkeley Springs as a member of the War Memorial Hospital Auxiliary, and volunteered at Starting Points.
