On December 18, 1976, she was united in marriage to Glenn Halbrook. Together they became the loving parents of three children: Timothy, Kelli, and Matthew. Sharron loved being a mother and took care of everything that they needed. She also was co-owner and worked at Halbrook’s Sporting Goods for many years as well as several years as the owner of the car wash and laundromat.

When she had free time, she enjoyed playing cards, working in her yard, and tending to her flowers.
