Our memories of Sharon are that she was a woman who Loved her family. She was cheerful~her smile was warm and her laugh was that of a woman who enjoyed having fun. Sharon was always kind to our family. She will be sorely missed by many.

A summer of fun memories when the Thurwell family lived in the farm house on Quentin Rd. many years ago. I Got to know Sharon, Bill and the kids. Mom often made endearing references to Peter’s girls and his son Peter. As I grew older, I admired your closeness as siblings and your dedication to the extended Heinz family. RIP Sharon. Hope you are at peace. Condolences to Bill and kids. Thinking of you. Denise Fountaine Dineen

I have such fond memories of times spent on Patton Drive with all of the Thurlwells and the other families! Mrs. Thurlwell was always sweet and kind to me and I clearly remember the immense love she had for her kids! I will keep all of you in my prayers as you navigate through these difficult days of saying good-bye.
