Sharon was born August 4, 1945 in Effingham, IL, a daughter of Beulah and Raymond Martin.  She married Ron Byrley on June 6, 1962 in Effingham and to that union were blessed with two daughters.  She later married Rodney Mohr on December 26, 1989, in Champaign, he survives.

She is also survived by her daughters, Starla Shouse and Jackie (Craig) Siefert both of Lewisville, TX, six grandchildren; Phillip (Amanda) Shouse of Altamont, IL, Nicholas (Jamie) Shouse, Kari (Frank) Vasquez, and Kassidy Shouse, John (Ash) Siefert and Carl (Kathryn) Siefert all of Lewisville, TX and her brother, Randy (Lori) Martin of Effingham, step-daughters; Terri (Mark) Magsamen of New Braunfels, TX, Vicki (Todd) Roberts of Royal, and step-son; Jeffrey (Ginger) Mohr of St. Joseph, nine step-grandchildren; Shannon (Darci) Wilson of St. Joseph, Laura (Jess) Brandes of New Braunfels, TX, Bradley (Courtney) Siuts of Tolono, Richard (Sara) Siuts of Sadorus, Derrick (Shanna) Siuts of Atlanta, GA, Victoria (Parker) Hardcastle of Savanna, GA, Chelsey Mohr of Danville, and Calvin (Brook) Mohr of Ogden, Lindsay Wallace of Chicago and Lauren (Noah) Schroeder of Ogden and 15 step great-grandchildren

Sharon drove school buses for over 30 years with most of those years driving for Unit 40 in Effingham.  She also drove for several small-town schools near their home in Broadlands after she and Rodney were married.  She loved her kids on her buses, and they loved her, especially her special needs kids.

Sharon had a deep love for the husband and her daughters, and her grandchildren were her pride and joy.  They were her life, visiting with them as much as possible in Texas.  They often met in Branson for family vacations as Sharon loved Branson and the water and traveling with Rodney in their camper as much as possible.

Her dachshund, Molly, was her everything taking her on trips when she and Rodney would travel to sell or buy antique toys.  Strangers at these sales loved her and always looked forward to seeing her down the road at the next sale.  She also loved to shop and cook big meals for her family and was meticulous about how she looked and dressed.

But more that anything she loved the Lord.  She was a Christian her whole life knowing who her savior was, praising him with every chance she had because of her great love of Him.  She loved to sing about him and to him and there is no doubt she is in heaven singing as she made her way to His arms.

The family would like to thank her hospice team out of Champaign, who took tender loving care of Sharon for many weeks.  Your kindness and dedication to service will never be forgotten.
