Sharon Lee Evans of Laurel, passed away on Sunday, June 14, 2020 at the Lofland Park Center in Seaford, where she had resided for the past few months.
She was born Nov. 28, 1962 in Milford, a daughter of Claude Edward Evans and Lois Eileen (Alsop) Evans of Laurel.
Sharon was a true animal lover and had a special place in her heart for dogs. She enjoyed the outdoors and stopping on a roadside to count deer in the fields was especially exciting to her. Her favorite dog for years was Clifford the Big Red Dog and she loved all of her stuffed Cliffords and memorabilia. Sharon also LOVED people and never forgot a name or face. She truly brought so much joy to all of her family and friends and her love and kindness rubbed off on them daily. She was involved with Easter Seals since she turned 21 and loved the staff there like her own family.
In addition to her parents, she is survived by siblings, Margaret Ellen Dunn-Wilson (Randy) of Salisbury, Martin Edward Evans of Smyrna, Richard Raymond Evans (Jolene Cross), Susan Elaine Evans-Struve (Mark) and Lynn Eileen Lancaster (Francis); nieces and nephews, Jessica Renee Dunn-Lewis (Stephen), Jason Robert Dunn, Wayne Alan Messick, Shawn Anthony Messick (Lindsey), Ian James Lankford, Hannah Michelle Lankford, Ryder Steven Evans and Charli Rose Evans; a great-niece and three great-nephews; and a sister-in-law, Judy Evans of Blades.
She was preceded in death by a nephew, Levi Edward Messick and a brother-in-law, Donald Dunn.
