Sharon Lee Moody, a longtime Willits resident, died at home on Friday, December 9, 2011, with her family at her side, after a long fight with cancer.
She was born on January 28, 1943, to Warren Parmalee and Ethel Parmalee (Clatty), in Willits.
Sharon never did things halfway; this showed in her volunteer work at the hospital, where she was a flower lady, and with her work on diabetes education. She was a colorful person in the community and made friends with almost everyone she met.
She is survived by her spouse of 27 years, Dennis Moody; her daughters and their spouses, Ramona and Mark Ranft of Willits; Leanne and Barron Wehinger of Nice; step-sons Ray Moody of Willits, and Allen Moody of Sacramento; grandchildren Leland, Miranda and Tia; as well as great-grandchildren, numerous nieces and nephews.
She was loved by her two sisters, Leah Oberdorf of Willits and Mousey Clatty of Orville, and will be missed by all who knew her. She was preceded in death by her mother and father, and stepfather Melvin Clatty.
No memorial services were held at her request.
