Sharon Lee Roof


SIDNEY CENTER - Sharon Lee Roof, 64, of Sidney Center, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, May 5, 2019, at Wilson Regional Medical Center surrounded by her loving family.
Sharon was born on June 8, 1954, in Walton, daughter of the late Morris and Cynthia (Kinne) Rivenburg.
The pillars of Sharon's life were family, faith and community.
On June 8, 1974, she was married to Lynn Roof; sharing nearly 45 years of love and happiness and raising four children.
