Sharon Diane MacGregor earned her Heavenly angel wings on September 3, 2023, surrounded by her loving family. She was born on August 30, 1947, in Corpus Christi, Texas to Elsie and Francis Neff. She graduated from Carroll High School.
Sharon married the love of her life, Gary L., and they grew their family with Gary F. and Karin. They lived in Michigan, California, and then settled in Corpus Christi. She was an active member with her family in the Calallen community with the Calallen high school band, Boy Scouts, and Girl Scouts. She supported her loving husband by acting as comptroller of MacGregor Services, Inc., an oilfield service company. Sharon was also a gifted artist painting flowers, butterflies, and birds on glass. She left adorable doodles tucked in books and notebooks all around the house. Treasures that her family will be sure to find for years.
Sharon was the glue that held the family together - loving and bonding with each one in their own special way. She loved spending time with friends, family, and their pets. She enjoyed sewing and gathering with her quilting circle of friends. Sharon made friends with strangers wherever she went.
Sharon had a heart of gold – making sure everyone was welcome and happy. She was a wonderful mom, amazing wife, and kind friend. She had an irresistible smile and unforgettable hugs. Sharon had unwavering strength and determination. She was smart - instead of searching the internet, you would just “Call Mom.” She had a witty sense of humor, often throwing out a comical one-liner when least expected. She saw beauty in everything, no matter how small or large. She taught her children to stand up for what was right and to follow their hearts.
Sharon was preceded in death by her parents, Elsie and Frank Neff; sisters, Leslie Rittgers and Helen Irby.
