She worked at the South Dakota Human Services Center in the nursing home and in patient services for 29 years until her health forced her to retire in 2015.
Shari loved spending time in her flower garden and had flowers all around the house. She was a Minnesota Twins and Vikings fan and she loved Christmas. She loved decorating her home and baking for Christmas, but especially loved having family around. She took great pride in her appearance and was always dressed to the nines. Dachshund’s had a special place in Shari’s heart and she loved all of her dogs dearly. Out of all of her loves, she loved her husband, Dave most of all. She enjoyed their time together taking rides in the pickup and going on walks. She will be greatly missed.
