Sharon Eberhard, 63, of Cumming, Georgia, exited this world on February 1, 2020 after a battle with melanoma.

A beloved mother, daughter, sister, friend, coworker, and Green Bay Packers fan, Sharon did not like to be the center of attention, nor did she like people to make a fuss over her. She was a long time employee of Lee Dawkins Insurance Agency and truly loved working. She loved it so much that after her first cancer treatment, she wanted to go back to work.

She was raised in Steven’s Point, Wisconsin and had resided in Cumming, Georgia for much of her adult life.

Sharon is survived by her daughter, Samantha Higginbotham, mother, LaVerne Eberhard, sister, Janice Zdzieblowski, and brothers, Kent Eberhard, Keith Eberhard, and Jim Eberhard. She is also survived by a niece and three nephews.

Sharon was preceded in death by her father, Kenneth Eberhard, sister, Nancy Tillman, and two nephews.

A celebration of life will occur in the summer and a piece of advice from Sharon is for everyone to check their moles.

Where to start? For the last 8 years Sharon played a huge role in our lives. We knew we hit the jackpot as soon as Lee hired her and we felt that way everyday after. I called her "The Boss" because she was the best at keeping Lee in line and I always joked that she was the one running the place, although I think they would both argue about who actually ran the place or who was right about things. Hahaha...Sharon was always willing to complain about Lee to me which was just one indication we were more family than work associates. We always felt so lucky to have her, she was always a topic of conversation at every AmFam event, we couldn't talk about Lee's business without talking about how awesome Sharon was. She was Lee's greatest business asset as he built his business. She was so good at her job, she was thick skinned and could take rejection, she was bold, she was great at talking to people, she could break bad news, most importantly she was friendly and kind. She also kept her cool when dealing with tough customers, while on the phone with them anyway. 😄More importantly than a contribution to our livelihoods, Sharon was a great friend and we consider her family. I always loved chatting with when I went into the office. She was always a good person to shoot the breeze with. Our conversations ranged from her newest plants, plant care (they just need the right spot), how Samantha was doing, her latest gripe about Lee (possibly my latest gripe about Lee haha), to our travel plans, what my boys were up to, and the adventures of Eli. Sharon was one of the few people that I could discuss all those adventures with without feeling judged. She always just laughed with me and wondered out loud with me about how things will play out. 😄 I always loved and appreciated Sharon as she was important to us in so many ways. In the last few months of her life I got to know about Sharon on a much deeper level. If a person's true identity is revealed in the tougher times of life, Sharon was golden. My favorite quality of Sharon's was that she was kind. She was always kind to me, always made me feel appreciated in those last few months and she was always kind to those who tried to take care of her medical needs. She was a favorite patient to many nurses. Sharon was a good friend to have around. I spent a lot of hours in waiting rooms, doctors' offices, and the hospital with Sharon. Despite the pain and often being blindsided about what was involved in a procedure we managed to laughed a lot together about any silly thing we could come up with. During a chemo treatment we laughed so much we got the attention of the social workers who were walking around. While in the ICU, while intubated Lee said something that made her laugh, she laughed, then we laughed, and then we cried. During the last few months there was laughter and lots of tears. Sharon inspired me in many ways and had a huge impact on my life. My life is better because she was in it. I am thankful for every minute spent with her and miss her so much for so many reasons. She will always be remembered as one of my favorite people. ❤

Sharon, you would totally laugh at me because I tried to post memory and it didn't go through. So hopefully, 2nd attempt works. I miss you so much. Not a day goes by at work that I don't think of you. Our clients miss you so much and are heartbroken everytime they call for you. As you already know, the kids and I planted all the Day Lily bulbs you gave me. They are really starting to grow and I think of you every time I see them. My Spider Plant is not doing great but I keep moving it around the house. You said, " It just needs to find a spot it likes." I miss you so much and I miss our talks. It's just not the same without you. I am happy you are pian free but I still feel it isn't fair. Love you so much!

Sharon had a beautiful smile and she was always willing to share it. I didn't know her well, but I liked the person I knew. She was the mother who raised Samantha, whom I love. For that I will always be grateful to her for.

Sharon was the glue that held my office together. I remember when I was looking for my first team member back in 2012 I was at a business meeting and was talking about how I needed to find someone to work for me. A lady (can't remember her name) told me her neighbor was laid off and was looking for a job. I had Sharon meet me at a Starbucks and we talked. She was very nice and soft spoken ( that didn't last long but that will be for another time :) ). My office started in Norcross and she was not a fan of that drive but she was never late. We moved my office to Johns Creek about 6 months later, then moved to my current location in downtown Cumming which is where she wanted to be. We bickered at each other like an old couple, my wife even called her my office wife, haha. I consulted with her on every hire I made and she would let me know if that hire was good by the way she treated that person. Many good stories there. My clients always thought she owned the place, she was voice/face of my business and she was good at it. I have clients that call my office looking for her and they grieve over her loss. I have cried with many clients over the phone. She is missed by many and i am so appreciative of what she did for me and my business. I loved her so much and miss her every day.

Thank you for sharing this. I remember when I saw this photo and was so upset that it wasn't the vase I ordered. I called the company and they gave me a gift certificate to apologise, but it turned out Mom just changed the vase, haha!

Posted at 08:54pm Every single one of my memories with Ms. Sharon are ones full of joy and so much laughter. Sharon could bring a smile to anyone’s face. She was always making sure my home garden was growing by giving me new plants and pots to put them in. She was always there to listen to your problems and give you advice without sugarcoating it. I miss her every day. She was an amazing woman and I feel so lucky to have known her for almost my entire life.
