Sharon was born July 17, 1941 in Platteville, WI, the daughter of Floyd and Viola (Voigts) Grunewald. She married Marc E. Karrmann on April 9, 1960 at St. John Lutheran Church, Prairie du Sac, WI. They lived in Port Huron, MI for several years, before moving to Dubuque in 1976. He preceded her in death on April 12, 2017.
Sharon was employed as a teacher’s aide/para-educator for special needs children at Franklin and Eisenhower Schools in Dubuque. She donated her time volunteering for Special Olympics for ten years, and at Finley Hospital for over twenty years. Sharon was an active member of St. Peter Lutheran Church, where she also served as librarian.

In addition to knitting and crafting, Sharon was an avid hockey fan, and along with her husband was a Dubuque Fighting Saints season ticket holder. She enjoyed camping, traveling, and loved taking her grandchildren to Disney World. Sharon and Marc visited all 50 states, 46 of them in their RV.

Sharon was a very sociable person and loved spending time with her many neighbors and friends, especially her coffee dates with friends and former coworkers. She was a member of Resurrection Alzheimer’s Support Group, which became very important to her. Sharon was an avid follower of her grandchildren’s sporting events and often traveled to see them play.

Sharon is survived by her children, Jim (Nancy) Karrmann of Madison, WI, Cheryl (Duane) Beckman of West Burlington, IA, John (JoDee) Karrmann of West Des Moines, IA, and Marc W.

Dear family. My husband Mike and I worked with your mother and father for years. I want you to know that they were absolutely one of our favorites. Always a smile on their faces. Your mother was sweet and caring and we are blessed to have shared this life with her. It makes me happy to think of them together once again. Prayers for all of you as you mourn your mothers passing.
