Sharon Mason Barron, 82, of Arkport NY (formerly of Almond and Canisteo), has entered into his eternal rest to be with the Lord surrounded by family on February 17th, 2022, following years of health challenges which she persevered through bravely. She was a devoted and attentive Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, spiritual mentor, aunt, cousin, sister, and friend.
Sharon was born March 13, 1939, the daughter of Edward S. Mason and Marjorie G. Mason in Hornell, NY, and grew up in Almond, NY alongside her older brother Donald C. Mason. She was a graduate of Alfred Almond Central School, Class of 1957.
On September 19th, 1959, Sharon married the love of her life and absolute best friend, Lyle. Their love story is one so beautiful there are few words appropriate to describe it. Together they shared 6 children, 7 grand children, and 12 great-grandchildren.
She was predeceased by her father; Edward S. Mason, Her Mother; Marjorie G. Mason (Green), her brother; Donald C. Mason, Her daughter; Lisa L. Barron, and her Son; Dan M. Barron.
Sharon is survived by a large family who loved her dearly. Her husband; Lyle A. Barron, her 4 daughters; Shaney and Danny Schneider of Ramona, CA, Sherry Barron Arviso of Hornell, NY, Shannon Schwarberg and Victor Zarate of Buffalo, NY, and Stacy Schwarberg and Joshua VanSkiver of Andover, NY; Her 7 grandchildren; Brandon Barron of San Elijo, CA, Chelsey and Chris Neal of Fallbrook CA, Nathan Hensen of Temecula, CA, Candance Madden of Cleveland, OH, Jeremy Blake of Murrieta, CA, Kyle and Katie Blake of Murrieta, CA, and Ellen and Chase Wilson of Owasso, OK; and 11 great grandchildren; Destany Hankard, Mariah Becks, Brooke Madden, Bianca Blake, Grayson Blake, Brody VanSkiver, Autumn Neal, Elise Neal, Adriana Zarate, Mateo Zarate, Charlie Blake, and Lena Wilson.
Sharon’s life can only be summarized as one well lived and full of unconditional love. There wasn’t a person on this earth she wouldn’t extend a hand too and share the gospel with. She was a woman of outward and inward beauty and her absence will be felt deeply forever.
“The Joy of the Lord is our strength” -Nehemiah 8:10.
