Sharon was born on October 11, 1952 in Cozad, Nebraska to Miles and Geraldine (Armstrong) Rowe. Sharon attended a country school in Cozad and then attended Cozad High School. In 1969 she attended Grand Island Nebraska School of Business. In 1970 she moved to Lincoln, Nebraska, where she worked for the University of Nebraska in the 4-H department. Sharon met Daniel in 1973; and they married in 1974 and resided in Hanover. Together they raised four children. Teamwork became crucial when Dan's job involved a lot of travel. He would call Sharon and she would compose his work-related letters using shorthand over the phone while raising their family. In addition to the love she gave her own children, she doted on many other children while running her home daycare. Then, she worked as a clerk in Schwartz's grocery store until Sister Vivian stole her to be the secretary at St. John's Catholic School. She enjoyed many friendships with staff, students, and families during her 23 years working there. Sharon was a great teacher to all of us of unconditional love and acceptance, a natural caretaker, and always had an open door. She became a member of the St. John's Parish in 1981 when her oldest son Bill received First Holy Communion. Sharon was a member of St. John's altar Society. Sharon was preceded in death by her parents, Miles and Geraldine; brothers Kenny and Richard; nephew Tom and Great nephew Adam. She is survived by her spouse Daniel; son, Bill (Kate), Kansas City, KS; daughter, Shelly Pavlu, Ness City, KS; son, Joshua Seeberger, Kansas City, KS; daughter, Amanda Carroll, Topeka, KS; grandchildren include: Andrew Curtis (Aubrey); Curry Milburn (Nate); Jaiden, Audrey, and Kaleb Pavlu; Gretchen and Matilda Seeberger; and Grace Ciel Seeberger and Job Carroll. She is also survived by her Great Granddaughter Penny Milburn. Other survivors include: Her brother Robert Rowe; sister-in- law Jayne (Bob) Holle; sister-in-law Susan (Scott) Averill; and brother-in-law James (Kathy) Seeberger; sister-in-law Amber Rowe and numerous nieces and nephews.
