Sharon Kay Thielen, 77, of Latimer, Iowa, passed away Sunday, August 11, 2019, at the Rehabilitation Center of Hampton. She was born on July 16, 1942, in Hampton, to Hance Casper and Mardella (Dreyer) Grandt.

Sharon graduated from Chapin High School and from Hamilton Business College in Mason City. She was united in marriage to Gayhart LeRoy Thielen on September 23, 1961, at St. John's Lutheran Church in rural Hampton.

Sharon was a bookkeeper for Farmer's Hybrid, Krause-Gentle, and Mercy Hospital, co-owned G & S Grocery, and was also a bookkeeper for ABCM and Midwest Meter.

She was an active member of St. John's Lutheran Church, rural Hampton, being a former treasurer for many years as well as being a member of the St. John's WELCA. Sharon volunteered for the Franklin County Historical Society.

She loved to attend her children and grandchildren's activities as they went through school.

She followed the Iowa Hawkeyes and watched a lot of sports on TV. Along with several other ladies, Sharon started the Latimer Star. She and Gayhart enjoyed visiting Redwing every year with their friends.
