Sharron G. Beeler

Sharron G. Beeler, of Jacksonville, Florida, passed away on Thursday, June 8th, 2023, following a long illness. She was 71. Sharron was born on November 26th, 1951, in Knoxville, Tennessee, to Bob and Barbara (Smith) Shultz.

The oldest of seven children, Sharron’s nurturing nature revealed itself early in life as she helped care for her younger siblings throughout her childhood and into her high school years. She learned to play piano, and her love of music led her to the Rule High School choir. Her great talent kept her in the choir for the remainder of her high school career. She won musical awards, including state choir. Sharron graduated from Rule High School in 1968, and married her high school sweetheart, James (Jay) Beeler. This turned into a 55 year-long marriage filled with adventures that took them across the globe.  For 22 of those years, Sharron  embraced her role as a military wife, where she perfected the art of hosting friends, family and distinguished guests. A natural-born people person, Sharron never knew a stranger; her welcoming demeanor and exceptional hospitality skills made every guest feel at ease in their home. She was the hostess with the mostest!  Sharron had “swag” and could captivate any room with her charm and beautiful smile. Sharron was also the biggest cheerleader to her family and friends. She always made birthdays, Christmas, and other holidays and occasions special, filled with love, warmth, and laughter. Sharron’s beautiful heart and soul touched the lives of many, and although she will be deeply missed by those left behind, her memory will be cherished by those who knew her and were inspired by her.

Sharron is survived by her devoted husband, James Beeler, her three children, Melissa Nan, James Beeler II, and Heather Waters. Also, five grandchildren, Tiffany Trujillo, Marisa Holley, Sydney Peña, James Beeler III, and Hunter Waters, and four great-grandchildren.
