Sharon and I were friends for sixty-six years. We didn’t always see each other a lot but we talked on the phone for hours. She kept me up to date on her family. We talked about Brenda’s trips and especially the great-grands, Annali, Ilanna and Alex. She really loved them. She was my confidant. Another love were all creatures great and small. She often had a story about the birds, ducks or other nearby animals she was nurturing. Because she was outwardly a quiet person, some may not know that she had quite a sense of humor. Her quick retorts kept me in stitches. If called into action, she had no problem promptly putting anyone who disrespected her in their proper place. This dressing down was done like a lady. She suffered from quite a few physical problems, but she didn’t spend a lot of time talking about them. She did what she could and kept on moving. Sharon distinguished herself as a computer programmer at NAFEC, the National Aviation Facilities Experimental Center. Although she had no degree in this field, she wrote many of the programs that were installed in government aircraft to help pilots navigate varying weather conditions. She was very good at what she did! Her co-workers were college trained professionals but they were using the programs written by Sharon. It makes me think of the movie “Hidden Figures “. I’m so proud of her accomplishments and I told her that often. She is an excellent example of what you can do if you have the will. Her story is a great example for her great-grandchildren. Because of her excellent upbringing and her own self-worth, Sharon was a lady of quality. I was proud to call her friend for sixty-six years. She is resting in His peace and remains a child of God. Love you, Sharon Agnes Nichols-Horton

We will all miss our cousin Sharon. She was the ultimate cousin. Believe it or not, she sent me a birthday card every year since I was an infant without fail until she became ill. I will miss the long telephone conversations about work and technology. We were both in the same field of work. She was always cheerful, candid and very encouraging. She participated in many family activities and hosted Thanksgiving many times for the family. She was the best!
