Sharon was born in Ponca, NE on February 18, 1946, the daughter of Arnold "Smokey"
and Alberta (Malsi) Stark. She was baptized and confirmed at Trinity Lutheran Church
in Martinsburg, NE where she was a life-long member. She was also a longtime member
of Trinity Ladies Aid and Gasser VFW Auxiliary. Sharon graduated from Ponca High
School and moved to Sioux City, IA where she married and had three children. She
worked for Johnson Biscuit/Interbake Foods until she retired due to progression of
Parkinson's Disease, which she battled for nearly 20 years. After retiring, she
moved near Waterbury where she developed a special relationship with her long-term
companion, Neal Beacom. She was able to stay at home until a few months ago when her
Parkinson's began to overtake her body and she moved into Regency Square in South
Sioux City, NE.
Sharon was a die-hard Nebraska Cornhusker sports fan and loved watching and cheering
on her Huskers, especially football and women's volleyball. Even more than the
Huskers, she loved her children and grandchildren and playing cards with friends and
family. Sharon was a kind, caring person known and liked by everyone she came into
contact with. She will be missed by many.
Survivors include her children, Michelle (Colby) Lessmann of Sioux City, IA, Michael
(Chantel) Scott of Boone, NC and Matthew (Gayle) Scott of Mooresville, NC;
grandchildren, Kali, Caleb and Chase Scott of Boone, NC, Conner, Preston, and Seth of
Mooresville, NC, and Logan and Sean Lessmann of Sioux City. IA; three brothers,
Charles (Vicki) Stark of Americas, KS, Richard (Carmen) Stark of Ponca, NE and
Robert Stark of Dakota City, NE; brother-in-law, Larry Lueth of Wakefield, NE; and
sister-in-law, Margie Stark of Hubbard, NE; special companion, Neal Beacom of
Waterbury NE; and several cousins, nieces and nephews.
Sharon was preceded in death by her parents, Arnold and Alberta Stark; 3 brothers,
Gary, Roland "Ed", and Arnold "Spark" Stark; her sisters, Barb Lueth and Linda
Makousky; several aunts, uncles, cousins; and a nephew.
Our sincere sympathy to the whole family of Sharon's during this time of loss. We knew her in the early stages of Parkinson's and she was a real trooper through it all, a kind and gentle lady. May God comfort you as only He can do.
