Sharon P Askew

June 1, 1948 — August 9, 2023

Sharon P. Askew, a beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, and friend, passed on to glory on August 9th, 2023, after a lengthy illness. Born on June 1, 1948, in Jacksonville, Florida, Sharon was a radiant beacon of faith, laughter, and love, whose legacy will continue to inspire those fortunate enough to have known her. Graduating from Berea High School in 1966, Sharon embarked on a dedicated career as an inspector at Milliken & textiles, where she diligently served for more than 30 years until her retirement. Throughout her life, Sharon's strong work ethic never waned, and she brought the same level of dedication and passion to her personal life as she did to her professional life. Her love for the Lord was evident in every aspect of her life. She had a strong love for family, and she enjoyed teaching Sunday school and studying the Gospel. Her faith was her foundation, and she lived it out daily, setting an example for others to follow. Sharon was also blessed with a green thumb, and she found joy in nurturing her Flowers, just as she nurtured the relationships in her life. Her love for her family was as unwavering as her faith, and she cherished every moment spent with them. Her children, Karen and Amy Cisson, her grandchildren, Brittany and Torrance Foster, Thomas and Vanessa Dover, and her great-grandchildren, Drayton, Aureliana, Malachi, Athena, Brooklynn, Aurora, and Azalia, were the apples of her eye. Her sister, Anita Roberts, along with several nieces and nephews, will remember her fondly for her humor, her warmth, and her unwavering love. Sharon had a way of making everyone around her feel cherished and valued, and her memory will continue to bring comfort and joy to her loved ones. Sharon had a deep love for the beauty of nature, and she found peace and serenity in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, and Cades Cove. The tranquility of these places reflected her own serene spirit, and visits to these locations brought her immense joy. Sharon was a woman of substance, a woman of faith, and a woman of love. She lived her life with grace and humility, always putting others before herself. Her unwavering faith, her infectious laughter, and her unconditional love will be deeply missed, but her legacy will live on in the hearts of her loved ones. As we mourn the loss of our dear Sharon, let us remember the words of the Apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians 5:8, "We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord." Today, we do not say goodbye to Sharon, but rather, we rejoice in the knowledge that she is now in the presence of the Lord she so dearly loved, free from pain, and full of joy. May her memory be a blessing, and may her life be a testament to the power of faith, love, and laughter.
