Sharon A. Halverson, 79, of Elkader, passed away Friday, Oct. 29, 2021, at Garden View Place in Monona. Sharon Ann was born May 23, 1942, in Rossville, at the family farm, to Lowell and Violet (Henderson) Walters. Sharon graduated from Waukon High School in 1960.


She was united in marriage to Robert Halverson on June 24, 1961, at the Presbyterian Church in Rossville. The couple was blessed with four wonderful children.


In her early years, she worked on the family farm and worked at the Soda Grill in Waukon waiting tables. The couple moved to Cedar Rapids where Sharon worked at Rockwell-Collins for a short time. In 1963, the couple moved to Elkader where they made their family home.

Sharon was active in her church, Peace United Church of Christ, where she served as a Stephen Minister, and served many years on the Fall Festival Committee. 


Bob and Sharon loved traveling and they visited Sweden, Russia, Italy, Hawaii and Florida to name a few. Her favorite place of all, though, was Branson, Mo. She loved the music at all the shows.


When Sharon wasn’t at a Hawkeye game with Bob, she loved spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren. She took great pride in all six of her grandchildren and attended their numerous extra-curricular activities.
