Obituary Donated by Joyce Collins

From the Hopper Funeral Home
Sharlene was a wonderful person and a excellent researcher. She will be missed sorely by every researcher in Knox County. She is also laughing at all the mistakes we have made over the years and relishing in the truth that she finally has.

Sharlene Sexton, age 54, of Gray, Kentucky, passed away on Saturday August 2, 2008 at Baptist Regional Medical Center in Corbin. She was born in Gray, KY and worked for 20years at CTA as a Secretary before retiring after five years of working at American Greetings.

She is survived by her Children; Shane Sexton and wife Jennifer of London; Joseph Keen, Colton King, Tarah King, and Wanda Lynn Scalf all of Gray; Special care-givers, Fay Carter, Vicky Dugger, Mary Monhollen, and a host of friends and relatives who will all mourn her passing.
