Sharon Kay Atkinson

Sharon spent the majority of her life in McPherson, Kansas, where she had a close circle of friends and was a well-known and much liked member of her church and community.

She was a kind, compassionate, generous, and hard-working woman who truly enjoyed life.

Sharon is preceded in death by her granddaughter, Kylee Renee Crawford, and her parents, Arthur and Mae Hickel.
