She attended St. Anthony Grade School and has been a beloved consumer at Community Support Systems in Teutopolis, IL for many years. She attended SEARCH and EASTER religion classes. Sharon liked to do crafts, word search puzzles, and loved looking pretty. She also enjoyed playing Bingo and cheating at cards. She was a quiet person but had a special way of making others smile.
Sharon is survived by her siblings, Marie Riley and Stephen Riley both of Carterville. She will be greatly missed by her loving family at Wetherell Place, co-workers and staff at Community Support Systems as well as the many others she has touched throughout her life.
She was preceded in death by her parents and grandparents.
