Sharon Musser, 73, Baraboo

April 1, 2019

Sharon Musser, 73, of Baraboo, passed away on Wednesday, March 27, 2019, with her immediate family and two close family friends by her side.

She was born on Feb. 4, 1946, in Chicago, and on Sept. 26, 1970, she was united in marriage to Richard Musser. In the summer of 1991, Sharon and Rich moved and bought a house in Baraboo.

Sharon was a loving mother and incredible grandmother. She loved to be out in nature where she felt closest to God. One of her favorite quotes was, “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain.” Anyone that knows her knew how much she loved to dance.

Sharon had a kind and giving soul who participated in the Red Hatters and volunteered her time for various causes, such as the VFW and American Legion. Despite all the grief she received from her family that are Bears fans, Sharon loved rooting on the Packers. Playing cards and dice with her grandchildren also brought her much joy. Dressing up for the holidays in crazy outfits and being the life of the party was to be expected of her.

Sharon was well known for her dramatic entrances quoting Minnie Pearl, with a “Howwwdy!” I’m sure those who knew her best can just close their eyes and imagine her making a dramatic entrance through the gates of heaven doing just that. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

Survivors include her husband, Richard; three children, Renee Musser, Rich Musser and Rochelle (Jason) Oelke; 11 grandchildren; and other relatives and friends.

A celebration of her life will take place on Sunday, April 7, 2019, at Thunderbird Lanes, 1117 8th St., Baraboo, from noon to 4 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please feel free to bring a dish to pass or simply share great memories. Thank you to Baldwin Funeral Services, 520 East St., Baraboo, for assisting the family with the arrangements.
