To Sharon’s family ,
I am so sorry for your loss, please accept my deepest sympathies. May your memories bring you joy as you turn to Jehovah the God of comfortand peace in this time of distress. Psalm 46:1
“When my disquieting thoughts became many inside me, your own consolations began to fondle mysoul.” Psalm 94:19.
I loved Sharon so much for how sweet and kind she was to me especially the past few years when I was moving from Lawrence back to Colorado; I saw her often at Worthy’s house and then out at Pioneer Ridge visiting Worthy and Forrest; her Aunt Susie loved her so dearly; I enjoyed Emily and Mark in the Church choir so much, they both sang so beautifully, such a joy to Sharon to hear them sing!
We are sorry for your loss. With Heartfelt Sympathy…Dan Turnbull/Tompkins Ind Inc.
My condolences to the Chaney brothers on the loss of your mother. Through times like this it can be difficult to remember the good times when sorrow is at the forefront of our emotions. May peace be with your family.
I was honored to be welcomed into your home by your mother the day Rod turned 21. I am sure that was the last time she ever wanted to see me after what the older brothers did to him, but she still greeted me kindly in the morning.
My prayers are with your family. She is a great woman.
I am so sorry for your loss. I worked across the hall from Sharon and got to know what a fine individual she was. She was an outstanding person. Always there to help me with insurance problems. She was a wonderful person and will be missed by all who knew her. Cherish her memories forever.
Sincerely, Betty Robbins
I believe I only met Mrs. Chaney once or twice, but I consider her son Rod one of my closest friends. He’s a good man — cranky and obstinate at times — but on the whole…good. I thank you, Mrs. Chaney, for your role in making him the man he is today — my life is better as a result.
God bless you all during this difficult time. My hope is that your minds will be flooded with happy memories of days gone by.
To The Chaney Family,
I was saddened to see that Sharon had passed. We worked together at Pediatrics and often went out to lunch together. She almost always had a smile on her face and was willing to help me if I needed something. I still remember when your parents lived on Monterey. Your mom would call me and say that she had gone through her closet and had some clothes for me. I would get there to pick up and your dad would come out with sacks full and say something about the closets still being full. They were both very special people and I will always hold good memories in my heart. Thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
To Mark, Mike and Rodney Chaney and families,
Our sincere condolences to you for the loss of your mother. Shirley and Sharon grew up together and had remained very close friends. Sharon and Don introduced us in 1958. We’re so sorry we cannot be there for the services but our prayers and thoughts will be with you.
sincerely Shirley and Gary Goff
So sorry for the lost of your mother.
Betty and Alan Fenstemaker
