Sharon served many roles throughout her life, with her greatest being daughter, wife, mother and Nana. She displayed an obvious enjoyment of the lake, beach and anything that involved the water. Throughout many years spent with friends and family at Browder’s Marina, Sharon was known for her welcoming smile, open door, and excitement to attend a Leaving Sundown concert. Sharon enjoyed fishing with her husband and was always willing to drop her line where he had just caught a fish. Those who knew Sharon best, knew the heart she had for her Labrador companions, Thor and Shad. Sharon loved her family immensely and was always eager to express her pride in them. She deeply cherished her time spent with her only grandchild, Alexis, and embraced her role as Nana with ease. Sharon also enjoyed reading, scrapbooking and winning on a good scratch off or slot machine now and then. She was one of a kind and will be deeply missed by those who she leaves behind.
Survivors include her loving husband of 31 years, Scott DeSpain; mother, Lola Miller; son, Scott DeSpain and wife Stephanie; brother, Kenny Miller and wife Sarah; sisters, Diane Smith and husband Robert, and Peggy Keel and husband Larry; grandchild, Alexis DeSpain; numerous nephews, nieces, other relatives and friends.
