Shari was a sister, a friend, a wife, and most of all a mother to all that walked through her front door. She loved big and sarcastically. Her dry sense of humor was her signature.
She loved to spend time with her husband, Bret, kids, and grandkids. She loved to enjoy a cold Keystone Light. She enjoyed swimming and camping.
