She was born March 28, 1943 in Detroit, daughter of the late Edward and Mamie (Bojas) Matyas.

She met the love of her life, Lee Alan Brown and the two were married March 3, 1973. He preceded her in death November 5, 2014. In the early 90’s Sharon and Lee moved their family to Saginaw where she continued her career as a medical technologist.

Sharon grew up in the Lutheran church and was most recently a member of Faith Evangelical Lutheran Church where she sang in the choir.
