She grew up in Peoria and graduated from Peoria High School in 1960. Sharon married the love of her life, Roger W. Loer, on September 29, 1963, in Peoria. He passed away February 26, 1993.

She also enjoyed cheering for her favorite football team, the Green Bay Packers. Sharon had a strong passion for animals and a tremendous heart for helping others with an energy that was infectious.
