Sharon Burkett Suggs, 56, of Burgaw, passed peacefully from her earthly life on Thursday, March 24, 2016, at her home. She was born September 7, 1959, in Hickory, the daughter of Lonnie Edward and Mary Carolyn Beard Burkett.

Sharon was a certified nursing assistant for over 25 years, a profession she loved. She was an animal lover, avid gardener, reader of books and shell seeker. Sharon was happiest when outside at the beach watching the tide ebb and flow. When not at the beach, she could be found at home with an open book. Sharon loved everyone to the moon and back. Her family will miss her smile, her laughter and wicked sense of humor, but most of all they will miss the biggest heart that planet Earth has ever known.

In addition to her parents, Sharon is survived by her husband, Huger ‘Gene’ Suggs; daughter, Destiny Suggs, and her husband, Michael Lenser; son, Matthew Suggs, and his wife, Samantha; grandsons, Tyler and Nolan Suggs; sister, Jane Ogden, and her husband, Bob; brother, Doug Burkett, and his wife, Angie; and many extended members.

A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Tuesday, March 29, at Quinn-McGowen Funeral Home, Burgaw Chapel, with the Rev. Ted Mercer officiating.
