Auburn, Indiana – Sharon Kay Harrold (Wilson), 80, passed away suddenly on November 24, 2023. Sharon was living with vascular dementia and was well taken care of by her devoted oldest daughter, Jackie, and the staff at The Astral Memory Care and Heartland Hospice.

Sharon was born to Ollie Fern (Houser) Wilson and Ralph Linden Wilson in their home in Butler, Indiana on June 26th, 1943.

As evidence of her tenacity, after suffering a massive heart attack and triple bypass surgery at age 50, she went on to live a healthy and joyful 30 more years.
