Memories shared by Sharon:
“I was born in Oceanside, CA and attended George Washington Elementary school in Reedley and my teacher for 5th & 6th grades was John Rogalski, who I found out a few years ago is a distant relative on the Berg side. I graduated from Pasadena High School in Texas. I also attended Reedley Junior College and the University of Washington. I retired from the Washington State Transportation Research Center in 2014.
I am a Protestant Christian and gave my heart to the Lord at the old Reedley Full Gospel Church when I was 7 years old. Brother and Sister Draper were the pastors. I sang in the choir at Evangelistic Temple in Houston for a good number of years.
I love to travel and have been to about 46 US states and have visited Mexico, Canada, and Australia. I enjoy photography and working with leather making purses, wallets, checkbook cases, belts and other items.
I have not been married and have no children. I love cats and dogs and have owned several of each.”
