She was born on April 3rd, 1956 just minutes before her twin sister and was a lifelong resident of Traverse City. Sharon dedicated her life to caring for others, professionally as a nursing assistant for over 30 years and as a dedicated wife, mother, sister, aunt and grandmother.

She was a lifelong member of St Francis Church, attend St Francis High School, and married her husband Randal Wheelock in that same church in 1980. Her faith drew her to sing in the church choir and to be of service to the church community.
