Sharon was born to Eleanar (Brown) Powell and Andrew Skeeter in Claremore, OK.
She grew up in Sapulpa and then moved to Howe, Oklahoma during her teenage years before making her permanent residence in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

After graduating from high school, Sharon attended Eastern Oklahoma State College in Wilburton and Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, earning a bachelor’s degree in Sociology.
Sharon was a member of Polecat Ceremonial ground (her mom’s ground) and spent a lot of time at Duck Creek Ceremonial ground (her dad’s ground). In her youth, you could find Sharon shaking shells all night at stomp dances. In her adult years, she enjoyed being at the ground visiting with family and watching her grandchildren dance.
Sharon enjoyed baking when she could and liked all things “Snoopy”, watching sports and especially OU games. Her dog Boozer was her constant companion and kept her entertained. Her favorite pastime was spending time with family, especially her daughter and her two granddaughters. They were the light of her life.
She was a caring and family-oriented mother, grandmother, daughter, and sister. She also enjoyed growing up having many aunts, uncles, and cousins. Even though she had physical challenges, she was always willing to help family however she could. She liked to joke and laugh with loved ones when she spent time with them.
