Sharon was born May 14, 1940 in Freeport Illinois to Arthur and Winifred (Davis) KinCannon. She was predeceased by her parents, her younger brother Michael C. KinCannon and infant son, Kevin Patrick Murray.
.   When Sharon was two, the family moved to Webster and then to Fairport New York, near Rochester. She attended Fairport High School and Highland Hospital Nursing School, and was employed as a clerk in a drug store and Sibley’s Department Store.
Sharon is survived by five children, Kelly Schlegel, Kerry Murray, Matthew Murray, Courtney Murray, Jed Murray, seven grandchildren and three great-grandchildren and her loving husband of 57 years Harold (Joe) Murray.
She was involved in many activities and hobbies. In addition to homemaker, she was a Fairport Library volunteer, Blue Bird leader, and an EMT with the Fairport Volunteer Ambulance. She served on the board of directors for the Wayne County Fair when many in the family were in 4H, showing our horses, sheep, angora goats and chickens, and hosting an exchange student from Japan. She loved working with the animals and alongside the vet. She also greatly enjoyed reading and puzzles, wrote an unpublished book, and was very proud of her Mensa acceptance above 99%.
After moving to The Villages in 1997, she joined the Theater Group, and acted in and directed many plays. She attended Lake Sumter College acting class, where she played the part of Sebastella in “The Tempest” and of Van Helsing in “Dracula”. She was a member of the first talent selection committee for the Opera Club, a member of the New York State, Photography, Trivia Club, Creative Writing club, and served as an announcer on VNN TV.
She will be sadly missed.
Donations may be made to St. Jude Children’s Hospital, or the Leesburg Humane Society, a no-kill Shelter.
A private Celebration of Life will be held in The Villages at the families convenience.

    When I read over all these activities Sharon loved, I can picture her doing many of them. She sold me an orange and white wrap at Sibleys when I was about 18. I remember her tender care of the various critters in Palmyra and I remember how she loved to knit, play games, read tons of books, and kid me (she wrote “jinx” on the bottom of my bowling shoes once!) She was a warm, loving person and I will miss her.
