Sharon Yvette Havens Fitch was born and raised in Houston Texas. When she was 6 years old, her mother died on Thanksgiving Day in a car wreck, a tragedy that affected her the rest of her life. She graduated from Sam Houston High School and then attended San Jacinto Junior College in the Arts and Drama Program.
She met her husband, Terry, when she was umpiring a girl’s softball game and he was the team coach. It took many years to get together, but they eventually married in 1988. Her family was the most important thing to her; she will always be remembered as Mother, Wife, and Grandmama.
Sharon co-owned “Havens Air Conditioning” for many years until leaving Houston. Living in Needville, Texas, she was a homemaker, bus driver and substitute teacher. She loved cooking, gardening, fishing, and road trips. She always enjoyed creating and selling arts, crafts, and paintings. Sharon was active in the Texas Extension Education Association for many years. She looked forward to Pleasant Hill Homecoming every year, going to the Alabama Coushatta Indian Reservation to camp, and also loved her opportunities to go to Europe. Spiritual in nature, Sharon believed in God but did not participate in organized religion.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Lillie Alice Martin Havens; father, Lawrence Edward Havens; brother, James Elsworth Havens; Granny, Cecil Whittington; and Grandmamma, Lillie Bertha Carter Martin.
Sharon is survived by her husband of 35 years, Terry Christopher Fitch; children, Summer Yvonne Havens Fitch Remlinger (Ryan) and John Christopher Havens Fitch; grandchildren, Will Ryan Remlinger, Jack Allen Remlinger, and Grant Christopher Remlinger; sibling, Sandy Havens Judice; and many furry family members.
