Sharon was born August 1, 1957, in La Crosse, to Art and Irene (Marsolek) Kulig. She married Jim Jahr, May 1, 1982, at Saint John’s Catholic Church in Whitehall.

Sharon was a graduate of Whitehall Memorial High School and a lifetime resident of the Whitehall area. She attended Western Technical College for Early Childhood Education and dedicated 30 years of her life to taking care of young children.

Sharon enjoyed camping with her friends and her winters in the warmth of the south with her sisters. She loved life’s simple joys while being with her constant companion, Jim.

She was as vibrant as sunshine and life of the party. Her pride and joy were her four grandbabies and she cherished every moment spent with them.

Sharon lives on in the hearts of her husband, Jim; her son and daughter-in-law, Brandon and Toni, and their children: Maverick, Jayda, and Brody; as well as her daughter, Jennifer; and son-in-law, Mike, and their child, Sayner.
