Sharon was a registered nurse, achieving her Bachelor of Nursing while working full time and caring for her family. She was known to have had multiple jobs, making sure to provide for her family. Her backyard was her "sanctuary" full of beautiful flowers. She loved nothing more than for her grandchildren and friends to come and be at her pool. She will be remembered for her "open door" policy. You were always made to feel welcome. She enjoyed her Corvette and was known to push the accelerator a time to two. Sharon was an avid reader.
Sharon is survived by her sons, Gary Higgins of Greenville, Ohio, and Frank Higgins of Brookshire, Texas; her daughter, Toma (Mark) Johnson of Carlisle, Ohio; her grandchildren, Erica (Steve) Greer, Vince (Ashley) Higgins, Daylon (Jessica) Poston, Danelle Poston, Ian Higgins, Lacey (David) Mullins, Maleah Johnson; numerous great grandchildren; her brothers, Kenneth Monroe and Larry (Shirley) Monroe; her sister, Toni Woodyard; as well as numerous nieces, nephews and friends.
