Sharon Rose (Fry) Ward, age 60, of Cordova, Tennessee, entered into the presences of the Lord on Friday, April 5, 2019, at 5:17 p.m. after a heroic battle with cancer.
Sharon was born to Quentin T. and Thelma S. (Stamm) Fry on Jan. 15, 1959, in Montpelier, Ohio. She graduated from Montpelier High School in 1977 and then received her bachelor’s degree from the University of Toledo. On Dec. 30, 1995, Sharon married Ed Ward in Cordova, Tennessee.
Her career path took her down a variety of roads, including: working on the family farm, retail management, dental assistance and tech support. She was an infamous DIY Queen among her friends and family members and always had a unique creative project in the works, be it people, homes or outdoor living spaces. She always had a special place in her heart for animals and could be found with a variety of pets surrounding her.
Sharon is survived by her husband, Ed Ward; five children, Christy (Josh) Lenzini, Elizabeth, Pete (Mandy), Emily and Ted (Susie); four grandkids, Abby and Anna (Lenzini), Ava and Zoe (Ward); seven siblings, Shirley (John) Reichle, Elaine (James) Layman, Tom (Penny) Fry, Tim (Sherry) Fry, John (Kim) Fry, Jerry (Sandy) Fry, Esther (Joe) Madrigal; and a multitude of nieces and nephews that love her dearly and are too numerous to be listed (really). She had so many dear friends in both Ohio and Tennessee who will miss her immensely. She was preceded in death by her parents, Quentin and Thelma.
Her presence, laughter and generous heart always lit up the room … she was greatly loved and will be dearly missed.
