Sharon Renae Woodring

Sharon Renae WoodringIt is with a very sad and humbled heart to let you know that we lost one of our own. Sharon Woodring lost her battle with cancer yesterday. Her last immunotherapy was too hard for her to handle. She was in and out of the hospital from December 30 until January 21. She developed complications that the doctors couldn’t cure. She was one of our very dedicated and supportive members. We will miss her. Please keep her mother, Claudia, in your thoughts and prayers as she struggles through Sharon’s passing.

The funeral is at 11 a.m. Monday, Feb. 1, 2021 at Elizabethtown Church of Christ. Burial follows in Hardin Memorial Park in Elizabethtown.

Visitation is from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday, January 31, 2021 at Brown Funeral Home in Elizabethtown and continues from 9 to 11 a.m. Monday at the church.
