Sharon was born on May 8, 1938, to Stanley and Lois (Reynolds) Holland.  Sharon graduated from Mineral Point High School in 1956 and continued her education at U-W Platteville earning a Wisconsin State Teachers Certification. Sharon’s first teaching experience was in a one-room school house for several years until managing the Sears and Roebuck store in Darlington. Together with her husband Harold Johnson and several entrepreneurs, she ventured into renovating the Walker House in Mineral Point in the early 70’s. Sharon then went on to her final career working in various positions at Lands’ End. She committed over 37 years to the company until her retirement. Sharon’s interests included reading, Taekwondo and traveling. Her greatest passion was caring for her beautiful flower gardens. Sharon was a faithful member of Trinity Episcopal Church.

    We are so sorry to hear about Sharon’s passing. Sharon and her sister, Claire, were my big-hero cousins when I was growing up. I used to like to visit them and their mother Lois and Aunt Minnie in their big house and yard. I think tea biscuits were also involved. Fond memories.
