We are going to dearly miss you Sharon. Remembering all the road trips she and Jeron had stopppd by to see us in Missouri. She had a very recognizeable chuckle and a great sence of humor. My Father, Uncle Willie is going to miss her deeply. They made numerous trips to the Casinos when he would go up and visit. That was tops on his to do list. Jeron, your Mother is home with our Creator now and will smile down on the pride and love that you have given her and will continue to exhibit throughout the rest of your life. We will miss your Mother deeply and celebrate her life that we enjoyed so deeply.
God Bless You Sharon and Jeron.

I am so saddened by the death of a very Dear friend, Sharon. She cared for my mother for 5 years and was a God send to our family. I gave her, her beloved dog Bella. Bella could not have been loved more. We shared many phone calls and texts the past few years as I don't live in Macomb. I will surely miss that, but I will always love and miss her. Sharon was a wonderful lady and I was so lucky to be her friend! Polly Freese

Sharon's friend, Betty Sperry,put together the 'Dream Team' for the care of our father, Glen Vance. Sharon was the Captain and we were so grateful to her and the rest of the team for every facet of his care. My most vivid high school memory of Sharon was when she and Polly Wayland won the MHS Badminton Doubles Tournament. I admired Sharon for the boundless spirit and a positive attitude to living her life. Soar Sharon!

I am so sorry I didn't learn of Sharon's death until tonight. I'm sorry for the family's loss...and my own, too. We've been out of touch for a while, but I'll always remember all the Mayalls as being a vital part of my time in Macomb in the '60s. Truly my second family. God's blessings on you all from Georgia.
