Sharon Kay McHargue, 78, of Mitchell passed peacefully at 10:10 p.m. on July 2, 2024 at Stonebridge Health Campus, with her family.

Born October 23, 1945, she was the daughter of Emery Sheeks and Wilma (Cooper) Sheeks Graham. She was a lifelong resident of Mitchell and a 1963 graduate of the class of Mitchell High School. Sharon worked at Brass Manufacturing in Mitchell before marrying the love of her life, Michael D. McHargue, on September 4, 1964 and he preceded her in death on September 20, 2016.

Sharon was a homemaker, volunteer at her daughters’ schools, and caretaker of her parents and step-father William Graham. She was on the board for many years of the Sheeks Cemetery in Mitchell, after succeeding her mother. She enjoyed sewing, quilting, cooking, playing cards, traveling to casinos, eating out with family and friends, and attending the Huron Baptist Church with her dear friends Brenda and Skip Mathews. She loved spending time with her friends, neighbors, especially Charla and Nelson Terrell and John and Marilyn Lantis, family, and most of all her four grandchildren whom she took care of above and beyond. She and Mike always happily attended every activity of every grandchild.

Survivors include daughters, Kathy (Tom) Scarlett of Bedford and Amy McHargue of Alabama; grandchildren, Kaylin Norris, Nic McHargue, Tyler Scarlett, and Kyla Scarlett; sister-in-law, Susan Wolter and brother-in-law, William McHargue; and several nieces, and nephews. Even though she was an only child, her parents came from large families which gave her many aunts, uncles, and cousins. Sharon used to say half-jokingly that she was related to at least half of Mitchell. 

Her parents and husband proceeded her in death.

Graveside service will be at 1:00 p.m. Saturday, July 6, at Sheeks Cemetery with Pastor William “Skip” Mathews officiating.

The family will receive friends from 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., Saturday, at Chastain Funeral Home & Cremation Center.
