Sharon Kay Marsh

February 18, 1942 — August 20, 2020

Sharon Kay Marsh, age 78 passed away peacefully on Thursday, August 20th at Jennie M. Melham Memorial Medical Center surrounded by loved ones. She was born February 18th, 1942 in Springfield, Ohio to Robert and Wilma (Coffman) Carroll. She graduated from Ansley high school in 1960. After high school she attended Beauty School in Colorado.

Sharon retired from Becton Dickinson in 1997 and returned for several months during their Temp Hire Program. She and Rodney married October 27th, 1970. Together they shared a love of horses, Ham radio (circa: 1980), hosting an annual hog roast, hunting, bowling, camping, and their children and grandchildren.

Sharon loved to please. She was always willing to bake a cake, decorate a float or fry some chicken. And for those who had the pleasure of eating her fried chicken, you know how perfectly delicious it was. She was rarely idle. She could do anything, I mean anything; paint houses, craft, garden, sew, change a tire, cook, “put up corn” and the list goes on.

Her daughter Carol (Jeffrey) Fairlie of Lebanon, IL and her son James (Stacey) Marsh of Ansley, Ne.
