She was raised in Falls City, where she went on to graduate high school and marry Roy Warren Hurd of Wayne. They would have celebrated 58 years of marriage on May 18, 2021. 

Those who wish to remember Sharon in a special way should choose to remember her as someone who was a devoted friend and aunt, she never met a stranger. She never met a slot machine or leather jacket she did not like, could beat you at any card game, and if QVC sold it, she owned it. She adored her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and loved them endlessly, as they did her. She loved the same man for 57 years and enjoyed traveling with him and keeping him in line while keeping up with friends and grandchildren. She kept her family united through tremendous loss. 

Survivors include her husband, Roy of Springfield, Missouri; her sons, Steven and Tracey Hurd and Darin and Stacey Hurd; her brother, Ronnie Marrs of Missouri; seven grandchildren, Colby Wimberly, Annie Wimberly, Abigail Forester, Olivia Feise, Charlie Hurd, Bland Landers, and Roxy Hurd; nine great-grandchildren, Brooklyn, Ava, Evan, Emma, Finlee, Chloe, Ella Grace, Gabriel, and Miles; as well as many nieces and nephews. 

She was preceded in death by her parents; her sisters, Joyce Smith and Clair Dunavan; brother, Clarence “Buck” Marrs; and her daughter, Roxanne Hurd Wimberly.
