Sharon was a beautiful person. She always took the extra effort to really find out what was going on in my life. I'm sure she was like that with everyone, making that one person seem like they were all that mattered when she was talking with you. The time she spent in the kid's ministry at the church really touched my kids for the better. They are also so saddened to hear of her passing. I also appreciated serving on the missions team together. Her heart for the lost was evident. Her close walk with the Lord is inspiring. I will always miss seeing her smiling face around church. My prayers are with John and the rest of the family.

WE WERE GLAD WE WERE ABLE TO SHARE SEVERAL GOOD TIMES TOGETHER THE LAST FEW YEARS, ESPECIALLY AS "GATHERING OF COUSINS", AND RECALLING OUR PAST TIMES AND EXPERIENCES. IN GROWING UP AS COUSINS WE DID HAVE MANY GOOD EARLY MEMORIES OF SHARON AND FAMILY GATHERINGS. WE KNOW HER FAITH AND YOURS WILL STRENGTHEN AND COMFORT YOU IN THE TIMES AHEAD.

EVERYONE was important to Sharon McCrory! She treated all with love and respect. She loved John. She loved her boys. Most of all, she loved her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. From our years at New Creations, Sharon taught me so much about loving the "least of these." She showed no favoritism. She just wanted people to come to know her Lord! We will miss you, Sharon!!!! GREAT is your reward! John, we are praying for you!

The Woman Who Fears the Lord
Provers 31
An excellent wife who can find?
She is far more precious than jewels.
The heart of her husband trusts in her,
and he will have no lack of gain.
She does him good, and not harm,
all the days of her life.
She seeks wool and flax,
and works with willing hands.
She is like the ships of the merchant;
she brings her food from afar.
She rises while it is yet night
and provides food for her household
and portions for her maidens.
She considers a field and buys it;
with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard.
She dresses herself with strength
and makes her arms strong.
She perceives that her merchandise is profitable.
Her lamp does not go out at night.
She puts her hands to the distaff,
and her hands hold the spindle.
She opens her hand to the poor
and reaches out her hands to the needy.
She is not afraid of snow for her household,
for all her household are clothed in scarlet.
She makes bed coverings for herself;
her clothing is fine linen and purple.
Her husband is known in the gates
when he sits among the elders of the land.
She makes linen garments and sells them;
she delivers sashes to the merchant.
Strength and dignity are her clothing,
and she laughs at the time to come.
She opens her mouth with wisdom,
and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
She looks well to the ways of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children rise up and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
Many women have done excellently,
but you surpass them all.
Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain,
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
Give her of the fruit of her hands,
and let her works praise her in the gates.

This is our Sharon - her life, her legacy, her love. Our hearts rejoice that she is home but ache because we can no longer feel the comfort of her presence.

Dearest Family and Friends of Sharon & John,
We are so very saddened to hear of Sharon's passing. She was a beautiful soul to everyone around her. She loved to give of herself at church in all areas. She was like family to those who were not from her own family- my family loved her! John, we are here for you with whatever you need, both now and in the future. We are comforted in knowing that Sharon is now face to face with Jesus, her Lord and Savior! We will see her again some day in heaven, but for the time being this earthly sadness remains because we will miss her. May the Lord be with you, John, and May Christ's peace that passes all human understanding be with you during this time. Our sincerest condolences are with you.

Family & Friends,

We send our deepest regrets over the loss of Aunt Sharon. We will miss her deeply. She loved Uncle John and her family so much. It is hard to express the joy that she brought into our lives. I will always remember growing up with her as my hand holding godmother making sure that I didn't stray too far (when I was little and older). She was one of my best friends and we could talk about anything. I'll always remember the family gatherings she made so special with her smile and a hug. We will never forget her as she lives on in our hearts and memories, and feel her spirit watching us from above.

Love, Laura & Tom

Sharon was such a beautiful person; she was so filled with the love of God it poured out from her and brought joy to every person she was in contact with. She loved working with the kids in Kid's RAP and I will deeply miss her smile and the way she caringly helped and worked with all the kids one on one, making them all feel at home. She was so faithful and was a wonderful Godly example of what a servant of Jesus should be. I will also miss her wisdom when she spoke at the missions team meetings.

All my love to John and family.
