I was so saddened to hear of Sharon's passing. I knew her well when our boys Joey and Chris met in school. We were cub scout den mothers together. I have many fun memories of that time in our lives, always with much laughter. Sharon will be missed. My sincere sympathies to the family.

From: Susan Clarke
I will always remember Sharon as one of the most beautiful souls on earth. When she would come and spend summers with Grandmom on Edwin Avenue that meant we would also get to have fun with the entire Maple family playing and swimming in my parents pool. She had the best smile and a heart of gold and will be missed. My love and prayers to Joe, Dawn, Joseph, Kristopher, Kenji, Kai, Karen, Denise and Frank.
