Sharon K. Heckadon Holsworth went to be with the Lord on November 8, 2022. She was born on December 8, 1942 to Vada Hobson Heckadon and Melvin Heckadon, along with seven other brothers and sisters who proceeded her in death along with her parents. Harland was her last brother and he passed away on the morning of the same day that Sharon passed that evening.
Sharon attended a country school named Reavley School for part of her grade school years. When the schools were consolidated, all the students went to Rich Hill. Sharon graduated from Rich Hill High School.
She was marred to Donald Wisely in 1961; they were later divorced. She went to work at Allis Chalmers and that was where she met Gary Holsworth. They were married in 1968. To this union, a son (Shawn) was born. Shawn married Jamie and they had a son named Conner. Shawn and Conner were the light of her life. Shawn passed away a few years ago.
Sharon enjoyed gardening, putting together puzzles, reading her Bible, and family reunions. She was a quiet person unless you made her mad, in which case she wasn’t so quiet!
She will be dearly missed.
