Shari was born June 2, 1967, in Mekinock, ND to Willis Gale and Judith (Anderson) Bullard. As a child, her family moved around every two years as her father was in the Air Force. She graduated from Oliver Wendell Homes High School in San Antonio, TX.  After high school, she worked as a billing clerk for the Methodist Hospital Emergency Room doctors, Geneva Health Care, Chase Bank, and Pfiser Inc.


She moved to Ayr, NE in 2010.  While in Nebraska, she pursued a degree in Medical Coding from Hastings Community College.  Shari worked for Mary Lanning Hospital and the Lanning Center for Outpatient Mental Health.  She was employed as a

911 dispatcher for the Hastings Police Department and a transcriber for the Hastings District Attorney at the time of her death on October 19, 2022. 


She was a private person who loved books and animals, particularly dogs.  Shari loved living in the country and encountering all the wildlife out there.  Her smile, wit, and humor were infectious to all who knew her.  She was a warm and kind daughter, sister, and friend.  She will be missed terribly by all who had the opportunity to meet her. She was a member of St. Michael’s Catholic Church.


Shari is survived by her parents; Willis Gale and Judith (Anderson) Bullard, and sisters; Debbie Bruni and Leigh Ann (Ken) Black, nieces; Kyleigh (Nick) Lahvic and Mackenzie Black, nephew; Collin Black, and her beloved dog, Mia.
