The family moved to Siletz where she attended school until she married Jack L Reid of Toledo on July 1st 1957. They were happily married for 55 years until his death in 2012.

Sharon worked in the seafood industry and in retail, but her last career was as a selfless caregiver.

After the death of her husband Jack, she moved to Hayward, California to live with her daughter Jackie in 2016 where she spent her remaining years.
Sharon enjoyed the challenges of computers, photography, making slide shows for the family. She loved knitting, crocheting, snowmobiling, camping, and cooking, but mostly she enjoyed her family.
