The family of Sara Glynn Hurst Sharpe, age 83, of Decatur (formerly of Cusseta, GA) will host a Celebration of Life on October 8, 2017, at Southside Baptist Church Fellowship Hall from 2:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. with Rev. Dr. Ben Hayes officiating.  Shelton Funeral Home is assisting the family.

Mrs. Sharpe, who died at her home on October 6, 2017, was born February 16, 1934, in Vidalia, GA.  She was preceded in death by her husband, Billy Ray Sharpe, and her parents, William "Bill" and Mamie Hurst.

She is a member of Cusseta Baptist Church, Cusseta, GA, but attends Southside Baptist Church in Decatur, AL. Her greatest desire was for people to know Jesus Christ, and did her best to model Him in all she did. Her second greatest desire was for people to laugh. She would wear funny hats, joke with you, or tell a tall tale, always saying laughter is the best medicine. 

She leaves behind her brother, Michael Hurst of Twin City, GA; daughter, Sabrina Halbrooks (John) of Decatur, AL; two grandchildren, Dan Halbrooks and Doug Halbrooks; and several nephews and nieces.

She loved giving her tithe to Southside Baptist Church, donating to the Committee on Church Cooperation, and helping anyone who had a need.  She would love to know that you honored her memory by giving a donation to your favorite charity.
