Sharon Perrine, beloved wife, mother, grandma, great-grandma, friend, and confidante went into her Savior’s arms on Thursday, September 8, 2022 with her family surrounding her. As she left, her family knew she was free and in the presence of her Lord and finally holding grandbabies that have gone before.
Memorial services will be held at 1PM on Thursday, September 15, 2022 at Dell Lutheran Church in Frost. Time for visitation will be held from 5-7PM on Wednesday, September 14 at Patton Funeral Home in Blue Earth and one hour prior to the service at church.
Sharon was born on May 1, 1938, the first-born of Ernest and Esther (Sabin) Schonborn. Along with her brother Mike, she grew up a country girl near Dell. She was a creative gal and wanted to be a clothing designer. She graduated from Frost High School and shortly after, married her first love, Glen Perrine, a town boy. Sharon and Glen raised five children on their farm near Blue Earth. There was never a lack of something to do. Sharon made life fun and creative. She usually had a twinkle in her eye and a laugh that was contagious. After her last child was born, she decided to go back to college and finish her degree. She brought toddler Nathan, along with his own briefcase to her classes. She graduated from Mankato State University with a Home Economics degree and a minor in art. Sharon taught for a few years but found her true ministry and calling as an entrepreneur. The joy of her life was raising her children and playing with grandchildren.
Sharon enjoyed quilting and partaking in creative projects in her spare time. She was a faithful mother and grandmother, and she passed her love for the Lord onto her children. Mom’s philosophy was that adventure was always waiting to happen if your imagination would allow. Mom was a superior cook, using “dump and put” recipes.
Left to cherish her memory is her husband of 65 years, Glen of Blue Earth; children, Julianne (David) Meyer of Arlington, IA, Danial Perrine of Frost, Debra (John) Oothoudt of Blue Earth, Gina (Daivd) Frandle of Blue Earth, and Nathan (Kari) Perrine of Bricelyn; grandchildren, Alex (Lisa) Meyer of Fayette, IA, Keagan (Stephanie) Meyer of Bloomington, Evan Meyer of Festina, IA, Hannah Meyer of Decorah, IA, Josiah Oothoudt Blue Earth, Elizabeth Oothoudt of Mankato, Eythan (Courtney) Frandle of Blue Earth, Ashlen Frandle of Blue Earth, Morgan (Jayden) Huset of Albert Lea, Jasmine Perrine of Blue Earth, Job Perrine of Bricelyn, and Jonah Perrine of Bricelyn; great-grandchildren, Indiana, Lincoln, and Coraline Meyer, Louis and Walter Meyer, and Finley, Hazel, and Reese Frandle.
She was preceded in death by her parents, brother Mike, siblings-in-law, and grandson Jeremiah John. Other grandchildren also awaited Gram's arrival in heaven.
Memorials are preferred to Dell Lutheran Cemetery Association and the American Heart Association.
Special loving care was given to mother by daughter, Debra, along with CNA’s from the area. In our mom’s final months, her granddaughter, Jasmine was a wonderful companion to her as well. Thank you.
