Sharon Geraldine Vaughn Wilson, 68 of Narrows, VA departed this life entering into the arms of her Savior and in the care of her loving family January 28, 2022. Born in Pearisburg, VA on February 24, 1953, she was a daughter of the late John and Roxie Blankenship Vaughn.

Sharon was a graduate of Narrows High School. She had attended North Narrows Tabernacle as she could. However, the greatest love of her life was to love and serve her family, especially perhaps her grandchildren who she wrote a poem to celebrate her girls.

“They’re that little something extra in your life of which you’ve grown quite fond, Because heart to heart you are linked and you have a special bond; Looking at them you see an extension of you; They bring back your childhood by little things they do; you see little parts of you in their eyes and how they act; They know how to turn back time and bring the little kid inside you back; They’re little branches you see growing on a tree; the limbs are their Daddy, The tree trunk is me; They mean just as much to you as their Daddy does, even though you didn’t give them birth, And you feel the need to hold them close and guard off all the evils on this earth; Grandchildren are precious angels sent from Heaven above to fill our hearts with happiness and bless our lives with love!”

She truly lived to J.R. Miller’s idea as she provided “A true home is one of the most sacred of places. It is a sanctuary into which men flee from the world’s perils and alarms. It is a resting-place to which at close of day the weary retire to gather new strength for the battle and toils of tomorrow. It is the place where love learns its lessons, where life is schooled into discipline and strength, where character is molded. Few things we can do in this world are so well worth doing as the making of a beautiful and happy home. He who does this builds a sanctuary for God and opens a fountain of blessing for men. Far more than we know, do the strength and beauty of our lives depend upon the home in which we dwell. He who goes forth in the morning from a happy, loving, prayerful home, into the world’s strife, temptation, struggle, and duty, is strong–inspired for noble and victorious living.”

Sharon even loved her pets as her children. While at her home, you could find her listening to country music, especially Tim McGraw; and perhaps you could spot her dancing at home or beyond. She passed her time by writing poems; sharing her thoughts, and the stories of her life. She loved to travel to see the world, and loved being in the Sunshine, especially at the beach. Sharon shared how the beach renewed her in a poem she wrote “By the Sea,” this is an excerpt,

“The mountains are lovely and they seem to surround me and make me feel safe and secure; But the Ocean always seems so inviting and breathtaking with its enticing lure. I close my eyes and like magic, once again I am there, Walking along in the warm sunshine without a worry or a care.

In addition to her parents, Sharon is preceded in death by her beloved son, Chris Wilson.

Left to cherish her memory to their hearts are her loving husband, Tex Wilson; granddaughters, Harley Wilson (Matthew Romanello), and Olivia Wilson; a great granddaughter, Halle Romanello; sisters, Panzie Whittaker (Douglas), and Bonnie Dunford; a step-sister, Golena Thompson of Maryland; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
