Sharon, the daughter of Edward and Edna (Fritzenger) Stroebel, was born in Kalamazoo, MI on September 25, 1937 and was a 1955 graduate of Mattawan High School.  She and her husband, Gene were the Owners and Operators of the Western Breed Store of Galesburg, MI, retiring in 1996. Sharon was a member of the Augusta Fellowship United Methodist Church.  She was very adept with crafting and enjoyed games especially mahjong and bingo, but her passion in life was her family and friends.

Taylor of Chattanooga, TN and Jody A. (Kraig) VanKoevering of Zeeland; her son, Scott S. Stewart of Atlanta, GA and her six precious grandchildren, Blake Smith, Cole (Julia) Smith, Jordan Taylor, Ashtyn, Tyce and Reagan VanKoevering.  Sharon was also preceded in death by her parents; her sister, Colleen Pennington and a brother, Norman Stroebel.
