After graduating from Longmeadow High School, Sharon attended Mitchell College in New London, Connecticut where she was later honored as a Distinguished Alumna.

Sharon always had a fun project in the works. Whether it be a business idea, a novel, a garden, or a new design for her home, she was always immersed in her ventures. She participated in a variety of sports throughout her adult life including tennis, running, skeet shooting, and croquet at the Lenox Croquet Club. Sharon also enjoyed attending races at Saratoga Springs where she would bet on her favorite horses and wear one of her elegant hats. She relished spending time with family and friends and hosting fabulous dinner parties. Sharon will be remembered for her energy, intelligence, creativity, style, and quick wit.
Sharon is survived by her three children: Matt Sherb, Shelley Lawrence, and Gaby Evers. She is also the proud grandmother of Oliver, Edward, and Arlo Sherb; Olivia and Jake Lawrence; Cooper and Madeleine Evers. Sharon is the sister of Stuart Sandrew and Barry Sandrew, honorary sister of Phyllis Sandrew. She is survived by her partner of many years, Joseph Furgal. She is also survived by Michael Sherb, with whom she remained very close. Sharon is predeceased by her husband Michael Feltser of Monterey, Massachusetts. To Sharon’s beloved family and friends, Sharon’s memory will live on in her spirit and her humor.
A service will be held at Ahavath Sholom Cemetery, 1297 Churchill Street in Pittsfield at 2:30pm on Friday, February 9, 2024.
