Sharon Thorn Foley

Sharon Thorn Foley went to be with our Lord and Savior Monday, March 25, 2013. Born in Akron, Ohio, in 1948, she later came to reside in Fredericksburg, where she met and married her husband and traveling partner, Frank Leslie Foley. They loved to explore places like Ireland and South Africa. Ireland holds special memories for them, as it was where they decided to spend their lives together. They were engaged on the shores of Clew Bay.

Sharon was many things to many people. She was a wife and partner, a mother, a grandmother and a great friend to all. Her embrace went far and was felt by anyone who met her. She possessed a playfulness that endeared her to everyone. She will be terribly missed.

She is survived by her loving husband, Frank Leslie Foley of Fredericksburg, her daughter and son-in-law, Brandy Spurling Tatum and Troy Tatum of Mechanicsville, her son, Timothy Sholley of Arkansas, sisters Mary-Jeannette Dougherty of Florida and Carolyn Murphy of Ohio, and her grandchildren, Austin Tatum, Loralyn Sholley, Caleb Sholley and Matthew Sholley.

As per her wishes, there will not be a service, but a private cremation.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that a donation be made to the Fredericksburg Volunteer Rescue Squad.
