  4. Former classmate at union pines high school 1973. I was sad at heart to learn of Sharon falling asleep in death. Fond memories of our high school days. Enjoyed seeing her at “mamas kitchen” back in the day. Sharon had a beautiful smile she bought to the room. Prayers are with the entire Smith family at this time.💝🙏🌺

  5. I pray for peace, comfort and strength for all of Sharon’s family. She was something else. I have a long ago memory of Thurlow’s Lake and being called her “Summer Sister”.

  6. To Janet and the Family. May God be your comfort in sorrow, and let Him bring peace and cherished memories to you all, in the days to come.

  7. My prayers are with you and your family. I will never forget our time together . Love you as you are still my family
    My heart is broken.

  8. Sharon was a truly great woman. She was always the same wherever I saw her. She and Jimmy raised a extraordinary family. I love you my dear friend Jeffrey and Ella and I’m praying for you. Claudia rejoiced on April the 12th because her darling girls entered the heavenly gates. Praying for you all, there is nothing like a great Mom. Prayers for you Jimmy.

  9. Sharon will be greatly missed. I know she is up there with Joan giving her a big hug. Prayers and hugs to Jimmy and the rest of the family for peace and comfort.

  10. Jimmy and ‘kids’- I was saddened to read about Sharon’s passing. It’s been many years, but we sure do have fond memories of fried fish, proms and baseball with The Field’s family. Sharon was always so much fun! Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Traci and Danny Adams

  11. My deepest sympathy to the family of Sharon. She was one tough lady. I remember us playing ball together and Jimmy coaching us. Good times! I know she will be dearly missed. God be with you all!

  12. The first time I met Sharon was the day she came home from the hospital. It was like the Queen was visiting!! Everyone was there to welcome her. One of the younger grandchildren got up on the bed with her grandma to show her a sore toe…..Sharon was short of breath from getting into the house, but the only thing she was worried about was looking at that baby’s toe. There was always a lot of love in that house, and Sharon and Jimmy raised a fine group of people to continue their family legacy. The world was a better place with her in it. I’ll keep you all in my prayers.

  13. Sometimes saying so very sorry for your loss and heartache doesn’t seem like enough. Sometime there are simply just no words. So here struggling to find the words…..I’m sending my deepest heartfelt sympathy, love and constant prayers for God to walk y’all through the days ahead.

  14. Jimmy,Little Jimmy,Jeffery,Jason,Kelly Jo, and Brittany. Thinking of you all during this time. I pray that God will comfort you in the days ahead. I will always remember Sharon as a great woman and mother and will certainly be missed. God bless you all.

  15. To the Fields family
    We enjoyed many meals at Mamas Kitchen and Sharon always made us feel like family and friends

  16. Sharon would be the first face I would see when I was real young and would get off the bus at Mama’s Kitchen and she would make sure I didn’t get too rowdy. This world has lost a good soul and my heart goes out to the entire Fields family.
