Obituary for Sharon Gay Holland Wasson

Sharon Gay Holland was born April 22, 1937 to Melvin and Alice Holland in McMinnville, OR. She was the oldest of three children, with sister Diane Marie Becker of Lafayette, OR and brother Jim Holland of McMinnville.

Sharon went to St James School, then to Mac Jr and Sr high schools graduating in 1955. After graduation, she went to work at the US Bank in McMinnville. In 1955 she also married Sam H. Jones of McMinnville and had 3 sons. Scott in 1956, Steve 1960, and Stuart (Skip) in 1961.

For a short period of time Sam and Sharon picked up and moved to North Vernon, Indiana to work on Sam’s father’s farm and logging operation.

Sharon and family moved back to McMinnville 2 years later at which time she went to work at the 1st National Bank. Sharon loved her job as teller. Over the years she had many opportunities to move up, but she wanted to stay out front so she could talk with everyone, and Sharon loved to chat! She knew everyone in town! Sharon stayed on when Key Bank bought the First National Bank for another 30 years.

Sharon was loved by so many people. She always had a kind word, and a smile. She was devoted to her faith for her entire life and faithfully went to St. James Catholic Church. She also loved being the greeter at Church, and why not, she knew everyone!

Sharon, left to mourn;

Scott of Vancouver, WA. Steve, grandson Jake, and granddaughter Emily of McMinnville. Skip and Kristin, grandson Brandon, and grandson Cooper of Tigard OR. She also left behind her sister Diane and brother Jim and their families.

Services for Sharon will be Tuesday, May 21st at 1:00 pm at St. James Catholic Church with viewing on Monday, May 20th from 4:00-7:00 pm at Chapel of Macy and Son.
