Sharon Kay Rust was born Oct. 4, 1941, in Walnut Grove in rural Jewell County, Kansas to Lyle Glen and Verda Eva (Jones) Fringer. She died March 24, at the Good Samaritan Center in Superior, Neb.
Sharon attended school in Guide Rock from elementary through high school. She was baptized at the Methodist Church in Guide Rock and attended church there until she moved. She was united in marriage to Jim Rust at Centennial Lutheran Church in Superior on Oct. 4, 1959.
After a brief stint in Virginia while Jim was in the Army, they returned to the Superior area where she resided until her death.
Sharon worked as a nurse’s aid at the hospital in Superior for a couple years in the early 1960s and then became a full-time mother. She returned to the work force in the late 70s when all of her children were in school. She worked in the cafeteria in the Superior school system for more than 15 years.
Sharon loved music, especially country music and music from the 50s, and she loved dancing even more. She enjoyed time with her family more than anything and was always looking for something special to do for her grand kids and great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Glen and Verda Fringer, and her brothers, Rex, Virgil and Ron Fringer.
