Sharon K Simpson, 72, of Youngwood, passed away on Sunday August 23, 2020 in Excela Health Greensburg, surrounded by her loving family. She was born on September 10, 1947 in Mt Pleasant, the daughter of the late Wayne and Sara (Boggs) Simpson. Sharon attended cosmetology school after graduating from Hempfield High School and was the proud owner of Sharon Simpson's Beauty Salon for over 50 years. Her greatest joys in life were her nieces and nephews and she lived to attend their events whether it was a birthday party, dance recital, horse show or ball game. She was the unofficial scorekeeper at all the ball games and all the fans and players knew her as "Aunt Sharon". Her record attendance in one season was over 130 games! She loved to swim and taught many of the nieces and nephews how to be great swimmers. She often recited quirky nursery rhymes to the kids and they all learned the little song Itsy Bitsy Spider complete with hand motions from Aunt Sharon. There was almost nothing she wouldn't do for "her kids", her nieces and nephews. She taught them valuable life lessons, always made them behave, loved them unconditionally and they loved her for helping to mold them into the people they are today. She was an avid Steelers and Pirates fan. She was also famous for her huge containers of macaroni salad, the best Thanksgiving stuffing on earth and her "porcupine balls". Sharon helped cared for nieces and nephews at some point in their lives and also cared for her elderly parents when they became ill. She had a huge heart and was a kind and loving woman. If Sharon was your friend, you knew you had a true and genuine person at your side. She had a strong faith in the Lord and was a lifelong member of the Third United Church of Christ in South Greensburg. She is survived by her sisters Connie Wilkinson of Armbrust and Lois Bell of Greensburg; her beloved nieces and nephews, Erica (Dave) Barnhart of Bovard, Joyce (Joe) Rettura of Armbrust, John (Vicki) Wilkinson of Armbrust, Jeanne Green of Armbrust and Jason (Melinda) Wilkinson of Armbrust; her great nieces and nephews, Cody (Samantha), Brandon, Dylan, Andrew Barnhart, JJ and Alyse Rettura, Jakob and Morgan Wilkinson, Keegan and Jordan Miller, Danielle (Luke) Furedy, Taylor and Tanner Wilkinson; her great-great niece, Brianna Barnhart and another great-great niece/nephew due in March.
