Sharon Kay Redman, 81, passed away peacefully at home in Kokomo, IN on January 19, 2021 after a courageous battle with cancer.
Sharon was born April 25, 1939 at home near Terhune, IN to Russell and Gertrude (Campbell) Wallace. She was the oldest of three daughters. She graduated from high school in 1957. On December 13, 1959 she married Harold “Bud” Redman. They later divorced but remained friends. He preceded her in death in August 2017.
Sharon will be remembered for her love of angels, crocheting, murder mysteries, NASCAR, and her cooking. She enjoyed her time volunteering at the senior center in Peru, IN. She loved the holidays when the family would all be together and could enjoy her chicken & noodles and pies. Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren were the light of her life and if given a chance, she would show you pictures them. She was the glue that kept the family together and will be deeply missed.
The family would like to express our heartfelt appreciation and thanks to the doctors, nurses, and especially the hospice nurses who helped in Sharon’s care. We will never forget your kindness and compassion.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to your local senior center, St. Vincent Ascension Hospice Care, 311 S. Berkley Rd. Kokomo, IN 46901, or your local hospice.
