Sharon committed her life to the Lord in 1948. In 1952, she married Wayne Ramey, who was home on leave from the Army. Their honeymoon was spent driving cross country to Camp Pickett, Virginia where they settled into Army life.
Upon being discharged, they moved back to California. They lived in Verdi, NV for ten years before moving to Springfield, OR in 1968 where they resided until Wayne retired. In 1989 they moved to Applegate Valley where their retirement years have been spent.
Sharon was a mother to everyone. She was one of those rare persons who truly make a house a home. She welcomed friends and family and opened her house and heart to lively and sometimes unruly teenagers. Sharon was a compassionate nurturer with a ready smile and encouraging word.
Sharon is survived by her husband, Wayne, a son Dave and his wife Sandra, four daughters: Kathleen Veritas, Cari Unruh and her husband Dave, Diana Clark and her husband Mel, and Sherlene Eicher and her husband Kevin. She was preceded in death by her parents, Les & Phyllis Grow; an infant son, Duane; and brothers, Tom Grow and Bruce Grow. She leaves behind 13 grandchildren, 11 great grandchildren, and a host of wonderful friends.
