Sharon Rae (Konstanz) Vincent was born Sept. 28, 1945 at Vermillion, S.D., to Leonard and Luella (Herr) Konstanz. She worked as housekeeping supervisor at Shady Oaks Care Center in Lake City for 35 years and enjoyed waitressing at the Wagon Wheel in Lake City for 18 years where she could visit with the patrons. Sharon took pride in everything she had, especially her home. She loved to decorate it along with her yard with flowers and decorations. She loved her shopping trips with Lisa, liked to dance and was a good cook. Sharon especially loved her family and being with her grandkids.
