Sharon was baptized and attended the Belmond United Methodist Church. She attended Belmond Community Schools and graduated from Belmond High School in the Class of 1965. She was a cheerleader during her school years and carried this passion for her beloved community throughout her entire life.

Sharon was united in marriage to Kenneth Skrovig, on June 22, 1968, at the Belmond United Methodist Church. The couple's union was blessed with three beautiful daughters: Cyndi, Myndi, and Lyndi. Following their marriage the couple resided in Clarion, IA, where they raised their girls and Ken was employed for Wright County REC (today's Prairie Energy Co-op) and Sharon was employed as office manager for Wright County Public Health from the late 1970's to the early 2000's, when she retired to care for Ken during his health decline. Following his passing Sharon continued to live in Clarion for a time before returning to Belmond where she had lived since.

Sharon was proud of her roles as a loving wife, mom, and grandma and all that came with these special titles. Sharon and Kenneth enjoyed dancing excursions attending their daughters many activities and traveling in their motorhome. A few of their destinations included: Montana, Tennessee, and Florida, and more local get-aways to Lake Cornelia and Brushy Creek. A favorite trip was when they went to Hawaii.

Sharon had a strong faith life and and instilled this value in her children. She, Kenneth, and the family had attended First Lutheran Church, Clarion, Samuel Lutheran Church, Eagle Grove, and following her return to Belmond , Sharon attended Belmond United Methodist Church.

Sharon truly was a cheerleader for her family and looked forward to any occasion that they would be together. She loved to attend as many of her daughters and grandchildren's activities as she could possibly get to. She was very much a people person, who loved to keep up on the happenings of her family and friends. She always tuned the focus on others and not herself.
