Sharon was born on April 18th, 1949, to Marcus Howard and Elva Arlene Sturgill Howard in Sandy Hook, Kentucky.  

Sharon spent her life working diligently to support her children and family, encompassing the true essence of a strong, independent, Appalachian woman.  She valued her family above all else.  Sharon was blessed with and raised three sons: Howard Quincy Stegall, Eric Tyson Stegall, and George Lee Scott Jr.  

In support of her family, Sharon spent her life working in several areas including education, hospitality, and corrections.   Sharon valued education and always encouraged her children to seize every opportunity that could culturally enrich and expand their horizons.
