Sharlene passed away at home surrounded by her family on Friday, October 30, 2020. Born in Rome, N.Y. to the late Gerald Dean Gray and Mearle Croucher and Shirley Jean Wagner Croucher. Sharlene grew up in Taberg, N.Y. and moved to Kansas in 1985. She moved from Lyon County, KS where she lived for 20 years between Reading and Emporia and then to the Lugoff area where she lived for 15 years.

Sharlene was a very cherished lady who lived a simple life. Life was never about her. She lived life for those she loved. It was the love for her girls that was her driving force.
