Sharon Ann Sewell

Our loving mother, Sharon Ann Sewell, 57, of Parkersburg, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, June 1, 2013, at her home.

Sharon was born March 19, 1956, in Cleveland, Ohio, a daughter of the late Oral Paul and Avaleen (McChristian) Wright. Sharon spent the last few years of her life as a loving homemaker for her family. She greatly enjoyed scrapbooking and loved to travel.

Sue Thompson; brother, Paul G. Wright; along with numerous cherished nieces and nephews; and many other well loved extended family members. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her wonderful husband, Raymond “Ray” Sewell.
