As a child her family relocated to Modesto, California where she spent most of her childhood. She then moved to WA State where she began seeking an education in Business. She was dedicated and took tremendous pride in her profession, which began at the Tally Corporation in Auburn, WA. After many years of residing in WA she moved back to California where she took a lead role in the development of many start up computer software companies. Sharlo retired from Hewlett-Packard as a contract negotiator in 2010.
Sharlo delighted in having Sunday dinners and playing games with her family. She was known for her infectious laugh, her insatiable love of chocolate, listening to Elvis music, watching the hummingbirds, her long-time friendships and her fondness for her dog Trevor. She spent many Sunday mornings at church embracing the sermon whether she was intently listening or on occasion, taking a brief nap. She took solace in the love of the Lord.
Our Mother, Sister, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, Auntie Jo, and friend will be missed dearly. We love you Lar.
