Sharon Crabb Nail, 60, of Mocksville, passed away peacefully on October 10, 2013 after being diagnosed with Leiomyosarcoma Cancer, a form of soft tissue cancer, in February 2013. Sharon was born on February 10, 1953 to the late Howard C. Crabb and his late wife, Doris Earnhardt Crabb of Mooresville.
Sharon retired with the Davie County School System after 30 years of service. Among her many accomplishments, she was the most proud of her 10 year Safety Award for safely driving her Davie County School bus.
Sharon was a loving, giving, person who had a passion for wildlife and gardening. She cultivated beautiful gardens that included a vast flower garden and a large variety of hostas. Her home was truly a songbird sanctuary. Sharon inherited her mother’s love for antiques and flowers and had a beautiful collection of Roseville Pottery and White House Vinegar jars. She loved taking visitors on a nature tour of her yard sharing the many varieties of birds and flowers that shared her Mocksville home.
She will be dearly missed by those who knew and loved her. She is survived by her husband of forty-one years, Charles (Chuck) Nail and two sisters Elaine Crabb Howard and her husband Phil Howard of Cornelius, and Karen Crabb of Grayton Beach, Florida and her husband, Ted Lee. She is also survived by her niece, Jennifer Howard Beard and her husband, Brent Beard of Cornelius, and her nephew, Jeffrey Howard and his wife, Kelly Howard of Kannapolis. Sharon loved her great nieces, Addie Beard, Emma Beard, and Lydia Howard who will miss Sharon’s love of nature, animals, and Smokey the Bear. In addition, she will be missed by her mother in law, Rachel Nail, sister in law, Jan Wood, and many other cousins, aunts, and uncles.
In lieu of flowers, gifts may be made in Sharon’s memory to Glenn A. Kiser Hospice House in Salisbury and to the Kate B. Reynolds Hospice Home in Winston Salem.
A celebration of Sharon’s life will be held at RiverPark at Cooleemee Falls at The Bull Hole in Cooleemee on October 20, 2013 at 1:00 pm.
