Sharon Lynn Reynolds was born at Mercy Hospital in Independence on December 13, 1943, to Thomas and Myrle (Maples) Smart. Sharon attended Cherryvale High School. While in school Sharon was an active member of the choir and pep club. She graduated in 1961 and then married William “Bill” Reynolds on June 24, 1962, at the First Baptist Church in Cherryvale. Sharon worked at Tri County for 30 plus years before retiring. She also retired from Heartland Coach as the bookkeeper. She was a member of the Lions Club. One of Sharon’s favorite times of the years was Christmas. She always set up multiple Christmas trees and placed her large collection of Santa Claus figures up all over the house. This time was extra special to Sharon because this meant she got to spend time with her family especially her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She just adored the time she spent with them.  Sharon also loved to cook, browse around Facebook, collect antique dolls, watch the birds, and go on her annual trip to Branson with her classmates. She will be deeply missed by all that knew her.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Thomas and Myrle Smart, and brothers, JW, Wilbur, Marvin and Charles Smart.
