Ms. Sharon Barber was born on June 12, 1942 in Buffalo, New York, where she lived until 1997. After retiring from a First and Second grade teaching position for over thirty years, she moved to Mesa, AZ, a place she loved. After visiting the area several times during her summers, she finally ha the chance to fulfill her dream. She packed up and left Buffalo full of Joy and hope.

Ms. Barber has traveled to Europe, Hawaii, Australia, and driven across the USA several times, often by herself. Her concern for people gave her "the opportunity" (as she said) to offer financial help to many in need. Yet, she never took credit for it, as she was a strong believer in God and Jesus Christ is her Lord and Savoir. By trusting in God and working hard, she was able to acquire a Master's degree in Education by working three part time jobs and going to college full time. Still, she always gave the credit to God.

Sharon Barber is preceded by the death of both of her parents and a younger brother, G. Paul Barber, as well as a sister-in-law, Terry Barber. She has a younger sister, Kathy Barber Hughes (Henry) and a younger brother, Dan Barber. Although she never had children of her own, Ms. Barber did have two lovely nieces: Jocelyn McKim and Tricia Barber Ramirez (Ramon); a great niece, Cassie Porto (Mark) and great nephew, Zachary McKim, as well as two great-great nephews and a niece. Also, two nephews: James MacRae (Jean), and John Barber (Mary) and four more great nephews, Alex, Jacob, Ryan, Ronan and great niece, Juliana.

She will be greatly missed and always loved.
