Sharon Pauly Tribute

It is with great sadness to announce the passing of Mrs. Sharon Ann Pauly. 

Sharon Pauly was born on September 8, 1946 and was the daughter of Harry and Ruth Speiss.  She spent her early years in the Hinsdale/Downers Grove suburbs of Chicago.  She worked at Liquid Carbonic where she met her husband Larry at an office party in downtown Chicago.  Her sparkling wit and effervescent personality captivated him and the rest was history.  They married October 16, 1971.  After her marriage she was one of the first female mail carriers in the state of Illinois and loved walking her route and delivering mail.  

Sharon was generous, never met a stranger, loved to play Spades (but by her rules only, no jokers), had a quick wit and was always ready with a charming quip.  Her home cooked meals were memorable and still talked about today.  All in all, she was a ray of sunshine in our lives and will be dearly missed.  Her Christian faith as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses was her anchor and kept her strong until the very end of her illness and was one of the last things she talked about before passing away on March 18th, 2024.  She had the joy of making long lasting friendships in the congregations of Jehovah’s Witnesses when she lived in Virginia, Michigan, Washington State, Georgia, Florida and lastly in SC.  

She is survived by her husband Larry, daughters Alia Sanchez (Daniel), Sarah Strickland (Jason), Anne Deleon (Ismar), beloved grandchildren Josie Deleon and Harrison Strickland and brothers Kevin and Jeff Speiss, nephews David and Neil as well as nieces Holly and Lisa.  The memorial service will be held March 30th at 2 pm at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses on 1907 Dixie Dr Newberry.
