Shari enjoyed many trips Up North to the family home in Rogers City and always liked to spend time near the water. She enjoyed sewing, crocheting, reading, cooking & baking, and traveling; but most of all, Shari loved to spend time with her grandchildren, and her friend Steve Miller.

Mom was born and raised in Battle Creek. She went to Verona then W.K then Central, a true city kid. She never considered leaving the area because of family. She was a devoted mother whom expended all her time in my upbringing. Being a single mom she never let me want for anything, especially love. She was my mentor and she will be missed.
