Sharon Kay Schewe

July 7, 1947 — February 23, 2022

In addition to her husband, Sharon is survived by her two adoring daughters Angela Hattan of Aviston and Sarah (Michael) Tow of Albers; and five grandchildren: Abigail Hattan, Kayleigh Tow, Allison Hattan, Johnathon Tow and Garrett Tow who were her pride and joy. Sharon is also survived by sister-in-law Joann Gebke; brother-in-law Rick Schewe; sister-in-law Vicki (Schewe) Heskett; nephews, nieces, cousins and many dear friends.

Sharon worked for the American Red Cross prior to becoming a stay-at-home mother to her two daughters. When her children started school Sharon went to work in the special education department of Belleville Township High School East. Sharon found her 20-year career in special education very rewarding and took pride in the bonds she formed with the students she served.

Sharon was a member of St. Mary’s Parish in Carlyle. She cherished time spent with family, especially her grandchildren. She also very much enjoyed her monthly luncheons with former co-workers from BTHS East and fellow Notre Dame Academy graduates. Sharon loved to travel and always looked forward to getaways with family and/or dear friends. She was always ready and willing to attend various grandkid events, go shopping, visit a casino, and work on crafts or anything else so long as she was surrounded by those she loved.
