Sharon enjoyed going to garage sales and flea markets to look for good deals and hidden treasures. She loved to travel. She wasn't picky about where she went, she just loved to go! She loved surprise visits to the homes of her children and grandchildren. They loved the visits too. She loved her familly dearly, especially her many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. When asked how much she loved them her answer was always the same, "A bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck!"
Those left to cherish her memory are her son, Tommie Cathey; daughters, Tanya Gardner (Jeffery) and Reanna Johnson (Neal); brother, Bobby Meredith; sister, Dorothy Parker; grandchildren: Jessica Meche (Lucky), Luke Carpenter (Amber), Taylor Cathey (Haley Hensarling), Tori Perry (C.J.), Junior Johnson, Weston Johnson, and Aliena Johnson; as well as numerous great-grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.
A "Celebration of Life" will be held for Sharon at a later date.
