After meeting Maurice “Dick” Ueland at a dance, the couple was married on August 22, 1964, at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church. Since Sharon did not drive, the couple worked together over the years for a few different printing companies. Sharon enjoyed fishing and spending summer vacations with her family at resorts. She was a hard worker who enjoyed gardening, yardwork, and cleaning the house. She loved hunting for deals at thrift stores and dollar stores.

She always saw the best in everyone, making her a caring and loving mother, grandmother, sister, and friend.
