Sharon was a very giving person and always remembered to send birthday and other cards to her family and friends. For years she also delivered meals to the elderly with the Meals on Wheels program. Sports were a passion for Sharon throughout her life. She was on bowling leagues and fast pitch softball leagues and competed in tournaments around the state in both sports. “Huffy” was a force to be reckoned with at first base. She also competed in tavern league volleyball and in curling league. She was also an avid golfer. Deer hunting with the Koelbl gang and grouse (road) hunting at Nookie’s cottage were also sports she enjoyed. She liked watching the Packers, Badgers and Brewers on TV. Sharon was an excellent cook. Whether it was Grandma Pahl’s potato dumplings or impromptu “Rhinelander Hash” at Wendt’s cottage, everything turned out delicious. She would always make extra so she could share some with anyone she knew who could use it. She also loved a good party and to entertain. She hosted many very fun parties and celebrations for family and friends at their little farm. During her life Sharon and Bob enjoyed traveling with their friends. They explored many places in the United States and traveled to places such as the Holy Land. Sharon was a long time member of Saint Rose Catholic Parish where she helped with Wednesday night bingo, ushering during service, cleaning the rectory and working at the parish food booth at Packer games at Lambeau field. In her later years she became a member of the Red Hat Ladies and looked forward to the camaraderie of her friends and the adventures they would go on.
