Born to Mike and Alice Morgan, she was the second of four daughters. Sharon lived near Elvis at the height of his fame and recounted the fun of being in the thick of things. Sharon worked for Proctor and Gamble and attended the University of Tennessee before getting married and starting her family. She enjoyed hosting family and friends for dinners, get togethers, playing games and vacationing.

She was a gentle and caring person, devoted mother and friend of many including Bill W. She touched many lives and her influence will continue to impact future generations. Sharon’s Catholic faith was an important part of who she was and she prayed every day for safety and guidance for her immediate and extended family.
