Sharon and Harold “Hal” Miller started seeing one another in 1991 and were united in marriage on November 18, 2012 at the Little Brown Church in Nashua. The couple made their home east of Charles City and loved their blended family.
Sharon enjoyed staying at Highlandville in Decorah and staying in a cabin with Hal and her grandchildren. She loved looking out the back window of the cabin watching for deer, turkey or any other wildlife that might walk by. One thing Sharon awlays said was, “I may have some faults in my life, but no matter what I love my family unconditionally”.
