Sharon Elaine Naugle September 1, 1951 - November 3, 2020

Sharon Elaine Naugle, age 69 of Ozark, Missouri, passed away Tuesday, November 3, 2020 at Cox South Hospital. She was born September 1, 1951 in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania to the late Lester J. Roth and Susan A. Hinkle Roth. Sharon is survived by her husband Robert “Bob” Naugle of 21 years; son Chad A. Whittington and wife Tiffany of Ozark, son Ryan T. Whittington and fiancé Angela Carr of Springfield; stepson Christian Naugle and wife Angie of New Cumberland, PA; stepdaughter Dana Attivo and husband Rick of Middletown, PA.;grandchildren Carter, Carson and Carly Whittington of Ozark; step-grandchildren Gavin and Hudson Naugle, Evan and Peyton Attivo; sisters Barbara Mentzer of Upper Bermudian, PA. and Carolyn Himes of Biglerville, PA.; brother-in-law Gordon Kistler of Mohrsville, PA. Countless family members, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends all dear to her heart.
She was preceded in death by her sister Mary Jane Kistler, brothers Dick Roth, Lester “Jim” Roth and Dean Roth.
She attended Nursing School at Reading Hospital, in Reading, PA and graduated in 1972. She made it her life’s mission to serve others as a Nurse and she worked at the Gettysburg Lutheran Home, in Gettysburg, PA for about 20 plus years.
Bob and Sharon moved from Biglerville, PA to Ozark, MO in 2009 to be closer to their grandchildren. At that time Sharon joined Preferred Hospice of Ozark, MO as a Hospice Admission Nurse. Again, touching as many lives as possible through nursing. She retired in the Spring of 2020. Sharon never met a stranger. She made friends everywhere whether she was at a grocery store, the neighborhood pool or a families home doing an admission. She was also willing to give anything she had to those in need, whether it be a hospice patients last holiday, a fundraiser at the kids school or a need through her grandsons Boy Scout Troop; we could count on Nanny. Sharon and Bob loved traveling, visiting their favorite local theme park, crafting, baking, “junking”/antique stores, and taking in what The Ozark’s had to offer (with her children and grandchildren as much as she could).
A graveside service will be held 4:00 P.M. Sunday, November 8, 2020 at Selmore Cemetery, Ozark, MO. Arrangements under the care and direction of Barnes Family Funeral Home, Ozark, MO. Online condolences may be shared at www.barnesfamilyfunerals.com.

    Bobby & Family,
    Our prayers and thoughts are with you and your family at this very sad time. I will light a candle at church on Sunday in honor of Sharon. We loved her so much and years back we did a lot of things together when the boys played ball. God Bless You All……..
