Sharon Kay DeMann
Sharon Kay DeMann went to be with her Lord July 28, 2020. She was born in Martin, Michigan on April 10, 1942 to the late Floyd and Sarah (Wagner) Washburn. Sharon was a lifelong resident of Martin and enjoyed her winters in Leesburg, Florida. On June 9, 1961 she married the love of her life, Ronald Gene DeMann. Together they raised three children on the family farm. Sharon was very crafty and especially enjoyed painting. She was an avid golfer and went on a yearly trip with the girls. She also shared her heart with her beloved dogs and other animals over the years.
Sharon was larger than life in her tiny body. She had a great sense of humor with a contagious laugh. She loved nothing more than spending time with her family. Some of the best memories occurred around the dining room table. Her faith was strong and helped her throughout her life, especially the last few years.
She is survived by her loving husband, Ron, her three children; Randy (Kathy) DeMann, Amy (Dave) Meert, and Ryan (Angie) DeMann, her grandchildren; Ryan (Tina) Gurn, Levi (Kristen) DeMann, Dustin (Jessica) Meert, Jenna (Ryan) Meert, Abby (Kurtis) Dame, and Brittney (Josh) DeMann, Madison Jeffreys, and Bradley Jeffreys, great grandchildren; Sienna Meert, Braelyn Meert and two baby boys on the way, brother Dale (Georgia) Washburn, and several nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her parents, her brothers; Jerry Washburn and Gene Washburn, and her grandson Cody Meert.
