Sharon, 58, went to be with our Heavenly Father on Saturday March 21, 2015 at her home in Raleigh, NC. She passed suddenly and unexpectedly of natural causes. A native of Winston-Salem, NC, she was born October 13, 1956, a graduate of UNCG, the daughter of Ralph Charles Murphy and Mary Elizabeth Hutcherson Murphy. Her memory will be cherished by husband of 30 years, Christopher Peter Fanelli of Raleigh, NC, sisters Janet Murphy Murray (Len) and Charlotte Murphy Carter (Audi) of Winston-Salem, NC, niece Lauren Ann Carter of Boone, NC and nephew the late Robert McKenzie Carter of Raleigh, and in-laws from Virginia. Sharon was a sweet, optimistic, free spirited, liberal, cat lover that enjoyed photography, the arts and living in the country. Celebration of Life Service will be conducted at a later date.
