University in St. Louis where she joined the Delta Gamma sorority and made many lifelong friends. Sharon married Lloyd Herr on March 3, 1951. Lloyd and Sharon settled in Evergreen, Colorado in 1968 and Sharon remained in Evergreen until she moved to Spokane in 1995. Sharon was an accomplished seamstress and artist. She also enjoyed restoring antiques and while residing in Evergreen, Sharon was an antiques dealer at “The Picket Fence”. Sharon loved spending time with her family and she taught them many rich Swedish traditions. Her grandchildren especially brightened her days on their many visits over the years. The strength of her family brought Sharon great pride. Sharon passed with her family surrounding her. She will be greatly missed. Sharon was preceded in death by her husband, Lloyd. She is survived by her children, Stacy Loudermilk, Brad, Bruce and Brett, their spouses, seven grandchildren, her brother Larry, her sister-in-law Pat and her brother-in-law Larry. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorial gifts be given to charities that care for the elderly. The family will hold a private memorial service at a family gathering later in the year.
