Sharon was born September 8, 1939, to Dorothy Della (Heeren) Harvey and Alfred Mervin Harvey of Hastings, NE. Sharon earned a degree from Hastings College and a Master’s degree from Kearney State Teachers College. She worked for many years at the Hastings Public Library. She taught high school in Bushnell, Lawrence, Red Cloud, and Winnebago, NE. She was an avid reader and particularly enjoyed Willa Cather and contemporary authors. She was preceded in death by her parents Alfred and Dorothy Harvey.

 

Sharon had three sisters and together they enjoyed being the “Harvey Girls”. She is survived by all three sisters: Beverly Jane (Norm) Phillips of Gilbert, AZ; Margaret “Peg” (Charlie) Morgan of Greeley, CO and Cynthia Rose (Blake) Wolpert of Nashville, IN. Four nephews, Eric (Becky) Rose and Fred (Liz) Rose of Bloomington, IN, Jim Phillips, Gilbert, AZ, and Chad Morgan, Fort Collins, CO; and two nieces, Nancy (Dave) Phillips Baker of Corvallis, OR and Patti Morgan, Greeley, CO.

The passion of Sharon’s life was teaching. She also enjoyed providing students the opportunity to participate in staging plays and studying theater as well as literature. She spent five years of her life being Al Harvey’s angel when he needed care. During her high school years, she served as the Honored Queen of Jobs Daughters. She was a member of the First Presbyterian Church in Hastings. Sharon was full of wit, knowledge, and she never met a challenge that she could not tackle. She grew delicious tomatoes and canned wonderful home-made tomato juice.
