Juanita L. “Snookie” Sharp was born September 22, 1924 in Lebanon, Pennsylvania, the daughter of Edgar T. Roop and his wife Beatrice Monica Ziegler, and died February 17, 2020. Perseverance was her motto for overcoming extreme personal and family challenges throughout her life. Snookie was always known for her strong Christian faith. She demonstrated endless acts of love, kindness and nurturance for her own children as well as relatives and those in need of a home and a meal. Countless hours were spent volunteering for activities associated with Lakeside Methodist Church and hospitalized children. She was a retired school teacher and educational advocate for children with learning challenges. A talented seamstress, she designed and made hand stitched quilts and was a member of a local long established quilting guild. Later in life, she learned ball room dancing and took piano lessons.
She is predeceased by her husband, William H. Sharp; brothers, Edgar T. Roupe and wife Helon, Elbert N. Roop ; sister, Edna Deanie Roupe; daughter-in-law, Debbie Haynie Sharp; son-in-law, Larry F. Duke; brother-in-law, George Batzos; and niece, Jamie Batzos.
She is survived by her children, W.H. Sharp, Jr. of State College, PA, Thomas L. Sharp and John P. Sharp (Jan) of Little Rock, AR, Ed Sharp (Debbie) of Clearwater, FL, Michael R. Sharp (Jamie) of Jonesboro, LA, Millie Sharp Duke of Pine Bluff, AR and Susan Sharp Smith of Monticello, AR; sister, Sue Batzos of Pine Bluff, AR; beloved nieces and nephews; fourteen grandchildren; thirteen great grandchildren; and four great-great grandchildren.
Memorials may be made to Lakeside Methodist Church in Pine Bluff, and Shriner’s Hospitals for Children.
