Housley.  She worked in medical billing and patient accounts at the former St. Luke’s Hospital, Community Healthcare, and retired from Rock Valley Physical Therapy in 2018 when she was a spry 78 years young.

Sharon’s life revolved around her family.  She was a devoted mother, grandmother and friend to anyone that knew her. She cherished every opportunity to be with family; whether it was a trip for Mexican food, ice cream or cheering on her kids and grandkids.  Sharon was a member of Faith Lutheran Church in Moline and enjoyed her breakfast outings with her girlfriends.

Survivors include her children: Cindy Craft, Davenport, Elizabeth (Jonathan) George, Bettendorf, Michelle Eldredge, Davenport, Chris (Melanie) Wilkins, Bettendorf, and Kaylee Wilkins, Davenport; grandchildren: Alex, Karlie, Leah, Jacob, Macy, and Caden; great-grandchildren: Adrian and Ariel; siblings: Harold (Gladys) Housley, Darrell “Skeeter” Housley, and Eldon (Joyce) Housley; and many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents and siblings: Duane Housley, Karen Armstrong, Bill Nicholson, Cheryl Harper, and Richard “Dick” Housley.
