Sharon Vance Obituary, Death – On Monday, August 29, 2016, at the age of 66, Sharon Jean Vance, who had resided in Angleton, Texas, passed away in Clear Lake, Texas. Willow Springs, Missouri was the location of her birth on January 28, 1950. Her parents were Bill and Jeannie (Ruefenacht) Radford. Before moving to Angleton during her senior year of high school, Sharon spent the majority of her youth in the Bay City/Markham area. Her three younger brothers affectionately referred to her as “Sister.” She was married to her one and only true love, Lonnie, for a total of 47 years after the two of them met here.
She had a strong affection for her husband, children, and grandchildren, and she cherished the time she spent with her family. In addition, she worked as a jewelry consultant for Service Merchandise, in addition to Weight Watchers and H&R Block. Her 15-year tenure as a vendor at County Seat Antiques, during which she sold antiques and curio items, was a testament to her passion for the past. Her daughters and grandkids were always looking forward to the intricate costumes that she produced for Halloween each year because she was a talented seamstress. Crafting and painting were among Sharon’s other interests, and she participated in a bowling league with her pals.
She was also an avid traveler and had the opportunity to see many other locations while accompanying Lonnie on business trips. In addition, she traveled frequently to her favorite vacation destinations, which included First Monday Trade Days in Canton, Texas and Branson, Missouri. Above all else, she was a stalwart Christian woman who never wavered in her commitment to her family and her Lord.
