On Tuesday, July 21, 2020, Sharon Ann Teske of Bluffton, S.C., passed away after a very short battle with cancer. She was born on February 4, 1953 in Eldora, Iowa, to Roy and Harriett Ryan.
Sharon retired as a government employee after working as the face and front office manager for the base hospitals’ family care and pediatrics clinics. As a dedicated wife to her cherished husband Randy, together they have three children. She treasured her children and embraced every moment with them. She especially loved her role as GRAMZ while playing and caring for all the grandchildren. Love and kindness radiated from this woman as she could make friends anywhere and light up a room!
Sharon and Randy would have been married 49 years on August 15, 2020. Their married adventure began in 1971 and was filled with several worldly locations and unique experiences from Randy’s Air Force career. Locations included Tachikawa Air Base, Japan; Homestead AFB, Florida; Anderson AFB, Guam; Offutt AFB, Nebraska; Elmendorf AFB, Alaska; Pentagon, Washington D.C.; Hickam AFB, Hawaii; Scott AFB, Illinois; Seven Lakes, North Carolina; and finally Bluffton, South Carolina.
