I've known Shari since high school back in New Jersey and re-met her in California many years later. She hadn't changed a bit. Back I high school she was a little ball of energy twirling a baton at every town event including our local parades. I will miss her but keep her memories close. 🧚‍♀️

Shari was a blessing to our car club. I clearly remember the 1st meeting Jack & I attended and how kind & welcoming she & Sam were. This club will be at a loss for losing such a wonderful person as Shari who was so dedicated to our club. She was a rare breed and God broke the mold on her. I was thoroughly devastated at hearing of her demise. One of my memories are when we went to the drive-in and Shari couldn’t stay awake for the movie. She had such a cute little snore. God be with you all and until God calls us home, we will see you then dear Shari. Rest in peace.

It is with love and sincere admiration we write this through our tears~
Why is it we feel so sad and empty over our dear friend Shari's passing?
It was a life lived to the fullest, with such passion and love for all. Why would such a compassionate soul be taken too soon? She is in Heaven now hugging and kissing Beemer and all those family, friends and critters that left this earth before her. Maybe that is God's plan.
We have way too many wonderful memories to share all of them here. There are a couple that come to mind that make us smile and remember Shari. It was Saturday November 10th 2012 Lee & I met up with Sam and Shari in Las Vegas. Besides having a great dinner at The Chart House, Shari decided she should be my personal stylist for the Wiskerinas Beard and Moustache competition at the Bunkhouse saloon. We laughed so hard and froze our behinds off at the outdoor venue, but thanks to Shari we took 1st place! I can still see her combing my fake moustache.
Another fond memory was from the night before an ECC car show at our home at Simpson'S. Sam and Shari came out the night before for dinner and to stay the night for an early start the next day. I don't remember what we had for dinner, but there was wine with it. After one bottle we decided on having another bottle. We were all having a jolly good time. Shari asked me for help getting the cork out of the next bottle with the corkscrew thing. I tried and couldn't do it either. Sam and Lee looked at us and said, "that is a twist-off top girls!" We almost fell to the floor laughing.
One last beautiful memory showing Shari was always thinking of others. Shari brought me birthday flowers and a cake from all our ECC friends on an outdoor movie night in July 2011. The movie was 'Gone in Sixty Seconds'. It feels like that title, Shari you were just gone...
Aloha a ua halawai hou
Aloha until we meet again
Love you forever, Cathy & Lee
