Sharon Marie Case, daughter of Vern Kenneth and Marjorie Marie (Waddell) Priest, was born at home in Lamoni, Iowa on September 24, 1943. Sharon was delivered by her grandmother, Bertha Hammond Waddell. Sharon started school in Lamoni; went to country school for one year south of Decatur, Iowa; and attended high school in Shannon City and Kellerton. Sharon graduated in 1961 from the newly formed Grand Valley Community School in Kellerton. After graduating from high school, Sharon worked at the Places Store in Mount Ayr and Greater Regional Medical Center in Creston.

          On July 31, 1965, Sharon married Charles Rolland Case.

In 1965, Sharon & Charlie moved to Tingley. In addition to being a housewife and mother, Sharon drove a school bus for 5 years; worked in the school lunchroom for 1 year; and then she worked the next 20 years at the Tingley Congregate Meal Site.

So sorry t hear of Sharon's passing. I remember when she was in the old hospital for quite a long time some years ago. You have my deepest sympathy.

Miss Sharon. She was a good friend. She was my classmate and we always talked and tried to meet when I was up in that area in summertime. Pray that she is comfortable now and she is having a reunion meeting her loved ones. My heart goes out to LaWanda and grandson Gosh and Darrel. Know you all will miss her.

We are sorry to learn of Sharon's death. We look forward to seeing her alive again in the resurrection. Jesus promised, "Do not be amazed at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life." John 5:28, 29
