Sharon Edith Fulkrod

She continued to work in various positions while raising her children and ultimately joined Ultralife Corporation in Newark, New York until her retirement in late 2017. Unfortunately, her retirement was way too brief.

More than anything else in life, Sharon enjoyed spending time with her family and being outside whether it was  sitting in the sun or by a campfire enjoying music. She also enjoyed decorating for Christmas. Sharon was deeply loved by her family and will be missed by many.
