Sharon, a.k.a. "Shar-bear" was born September 18, 1963 in Burlington, Iowa. She was the daughter of James E. and Sharon K. (Gapen) Nicholson. She graduated from Racine Lutheran High School in 1981.


Always a people person, Sharri worked customer service jobs until retiring. She had a love of reading and cherished her book collection. Music was always playing somewhere in the house while growing up. She was considered a "Musical Time Machine". Everyone always wanted Shar-bear on their team in a trivia match. She was a fierce opponent in cribbage games with her dad. She was fortunate to have and hold the hearts of many.


Those thankful for sharing in Shar-bear's life include her father and step-mother, James and Wanda Nicholson of Blowing Rock, N.C.; her mother, Sharon Tashoff of Burlington, Iowa; two sisters and their spouses: Tina & Rick Moriarity of Racine, Wis. and Trish & Ken Alexander of Rochester, Minn.; two step-sisters: Cissie Eagles Scott and her husband Damon and Amy Eagles, all of Blowing Rock, N.C.; and her nieces and nephews: Rachael and Braiden Moriarity and Christopher, Timothy and Elizabeth Alexander.
