Sharon Conner Yeatts, 75, of Dublin, VA returned to be with the Lord on February 2, 2018. She was preceded in death by her husband, Eddie Yeatts; her parents, James Everett and Annie Conner; brother, Alton Conner; sisters, Bonnie Johnson and Mabel Wickham.

Sharon is survived by her son, Chadd Yeatts; daughter-in-law Amber Yeatts; granddaughter, Victoria Yeatts; sister-in-law and husband Darlene and Bill Leaguel; nieces, Betty Sowers and Angela Conner; nephew and wife Gary and Kathy Johnson, nephew and wife Michael and Rose McFie Conner; special friend Darlene Bane; and numerous special great-nieces, cousins, extended family, special friends, and neighbors.

Sharon grew up on her family farm in Alleghany Springs (Shawsville), VA, and loved recounting memories of her farm days and helping her dad at the farmer’s market. She worked for the Kroger Company where she met her future husband Eddie and then went onto work at WDBJ 7 in
Roanoke, VA. She then spent her most rewarding years at home as a wife and mother. Sharon loved the outdoors and spent many hours laboring in her vegetable garden and landscaping her home. She loved to travel and always enjoyed sitting on the porch at the Homestead Resort where she had the talent to make new friends in less than five minutes. She spent her last years living at her beloved home at Claytor Lake. She loved her home on the lake and we are comforted that she spent her remaining moments there as she wished.

The family will receive friends in a celebration of life from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm on Friday, February 9, 2018, at the banquet building at Blacksburg Country Club. A private graveside service will take place prior to the reception.
