Dear Sharp Family, Just a note to tell you what fond memories we have of Aunt Elsie. She was always so kind to us and would make sure we had a place to stay/eat when we would visit WVA. We will miss her but are glad she completed here mission on earth and can now return home to loved ones. We are grateful for her exemplary life and will cherish the time we spent with her. Love, Mark, Colette, & Kids

My Dear Family, I know this is a time of both sadness and rejoicing. I don't think there is anyone in the whole Sharp family that was as kind as Aunt Elsie. She truly was a saint in these latter days. Just know my thoughts and prayers are with you even though I can't be there in person. Love to you all...Cindy

Dear Ninette and Rex, Please accept my heartfelt sorrow at this time. Your Mom was a great lady who taught me alot at Pea Ridge. She was a good lady and a great teacher ! Fair but made you work in class ! She would dicipline as needed. Along with her, Mrs. Owens,Mrs Crook, Mrs. Artist, Mrs. Saunders,Mrs. Burgess, Mrs. Wilkerson, Mrs Nolan, Mr. Eldrige, and Mrs. Fisher I recieved a great foundation for life and education. It was a tean effort (especially with our bunch!)I wish we had more teachers with the passion they all had ! Butch Lipscomb

Mrs. Sharp was my 2nd Grade teacher(teaching 2nd and 3rd in the same classroom) in 1960 at Watson Elementary on the corner of Rt 60 and Cyrus Creek Road. I live now in Myrtle Beach. She was one of the kindest teachers I ever met. I am saddened at your loss. Our loss is Heaven's gain.

My prayers are with you at this time. I believe that Mrs. Sharp was a teacher of mine in Elementary. Did she teach at Pea Ridge Elementary in the 60"s? I may be wrong. Please take care.
