On November 7th 2021 Sharon Kaye Bohlen, 71, peacefully left her earthly life with the guidance of Angels. She is now in her Eternal Home.

Sharon was the middle child of the late Dale and Rosa Billings, and was preceded in death by her daughter, Kristine Marie Bohlen. She is survived by her husband of 52 years, John Michael Bohlen of the home; grandchildren, Summer Marie May and husband, Dennis of Burlington, Misty Lynn May of Raleigh; great grandchildren, William and Dennis “Trey” III; brother, Harold Eugene Billings and wife, Carole of Graham and her sister, Anna Lee Windsor of Mebane and numerous nieces and nephews.

Before departing her life, Sharon lived a very fulfilling Life. She was foremost a woman of character, Honesty, Integrity, Generosity and perseverance. From her early tom-boy days she evolved into a proactive and successful business woman and wife. She started out in banking as a teller and soon rose to Assistant Branch MGR. From banking she moved into the transportation industry in accounting and ended up as one of the top sales reps for the local office of Overnight Transportation. 

Sharon had a flair to decorate, loved to entertain, and loved to get family and friends together to have good times.  She was a very giving person. Her infectious smile and personality always made people feel comfortable and welcome. Through the years, many who knew her were fortunate to experience her extraordinary hospitality.

Outside of her love for family and friends she loved to travel.  She loved to go canoeing and especially loved the thrill of white-water rafting. Her travels took her along the east coast from N.Y. City to Disney World & Universal Studios. Outside of the U.S., she visited numerous islands in the Caribbean on cruises (9) as well as many resorts throughout Mexico.  Her later years found her still having good times and enjoying herself at Myrtle Beach, S.C.

Sharon was all things that describe a devoted wife, but also a loving companion, partner and best friend.  Life with the “General” was a God sent wonderful adventure. She will be deeply missed by all the lives she touched. 

Memorials may be made to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105.
