Right out of high school, Sharon worked in Yellowstone at Mammoth Hot Springs. Her and her friend decided to move to Salt Lake City where she attended the LDS Business School for some time.

Soon after they had their two children, their son Scott and daughter Lori Ann. They have been happily married for 55 years.
Lloyd’s occupation moved them around the country living in Montana, Washington, North Dakota, and Missouri just to name a few. They finally came back to Logan, Utah where they resided for the rest of there time. While in Logan, Sharon got a job at Utah State University working in the library where she retired from after 25 years. After retirement, her and Lloyd went on many trips and car rides. She loved her family and being with her grandchildren. Sharon loved card games, cross word puzzles and word searches. She loved Family Feud and Little House on the Prairie. She loved watching sports, especially the Utah Jazz basketball team with Scott.
