She leaves many aunts, uncles, cousins, and dear friends. Sharon was a musician, primarily a Bass player and vocalist. Her love for music was a God given talent, which began on her 12th birthday when she received a guitar from her dad. She grew up in Marietta, GA and graduated from Osborne High School where she was in drama class, chorus, and marching band. After graduation she moved to Seattle, Washington where she and four other women, from multiple areas around the states, got together and formed a rock band called Hijinx. The band was successful and served as the headlining group at a major venue in the Seattle area, called Montana’s for many years. Seeking bigger stages, she moved on to the glitter of Las Vegas, where she played in prestigious venues such as Caesar’s Palace, Bally’s, and Bourbon Street. In the 90’s she embarked on a southeastern tour opening for the Indigo Girls, as part of a duo with singer Rache Alpert. She has performed with Ronnda Cadle and the String Poets, and was currently a member of Lo Down Brown, Atomic Road and The Usual Suspects, all based in Aiken, SC and Augusta, GA. Sharon will be remembered for her intelligent, quick witted personality. She loved her family deeply and anyone who was fortunate enough to be her friend was dearly loved by her. She was a member of the band Lo Down Brown, who performed yearly at the Etherredge Center for a benefit for the Heart Fund, given by the Aiken South Cardio Women’s Heart Board.
