Sharon spent her early years residing in Missouri, prior to her family settling in Illinois. Upon her graduation from High School, she enlisted with the United States Army and was medically discharged. 

Sharon worked in various occupations throughout her life, primarily as a cook in the hospitality industry. 

She married Frank Floyd Teney on December 11, 2015, at the First United Methodist Church in Jerseyville. Although their time was far too brief, they shared in many wonderful memories together prior to Frank’s death on November 21, 2017.

Surviving are two sisters, Donna Dirksmeyer of Jerseyville and Linda (James) Morgan of Alton, Missouri; a brother, Bobby (Diana) Hight of Marked Tree, Arkansas; three nieces and their families, Tammy Lyming of Jerseyville, Connie Dirksmeyer of Jerseyville, and Shantel Woolsey of Otterville. 

In addition to her parents and her husband, she was preceded in death by a sister, Edith Critchfield Sims.
