Sharon Holdren, 55, of Shady Spring passed away at her home following a sudden illness on March 28th, 2016. She was born in Beckley West Virginia and attended Woodrow Wilson High School. Compassion for others colored her very full life as she spent many years working in the field of patient care. She was most recently employed by ResCare, providing services to people with disabilities. Creative and thoughtful, Sharon enjoyed scrap-booking and photography; especially taking photos of - and - with her grandchildren, of whom she was extremely proud. Nothing lit up Sharon's eyes more than when she was telling a story about her 'precious grand-babies'. Quick with a smile and a hug, she was deeply thoughtful. Family and friends remember Sharon always had a unique card, gift, or word to offer on a special occasion, holiday, or birthday and many times 'just because'. Sharon was a true light in this world and could make instant friends with anyone she ever met. She was deeply loved by family as well as her many friends.
