Sharon L. (Lutz) Bowers, 74, passed away in her home on Thursday, July 17, 2019, with her husband of 54 years, Keith and her loving family by her side. She was born May 10, 1945, in Lancaster, a daughter of Harold “Barney” Lutz and Dorothy “Dot” Anthony.
She was a graduate of Lancaster High School, a homemaker and member of the New Zion United Methodist Church where she enjoyed many mission trips with her church family. Sharon was a loving and caring wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. Sharon had great enthusiasm for all things family related, especially a rowdy and fun game night. Her pride-and joy glass tumble-up collection was featured at the Lancaster Glass Museum and she loved to create new crafts. She courageously fought her short battle with cancer but never let it stop her unselfish compassion for those she loved. She will be remembered for her beautiful smile, witty sense of humor and her all-around spunk.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her brother, Lloyd Lutz; and her sister, Betsy Kilbarger. She is survived by her children, Sherry (Ralph) Talbert and Kris (Jennifer) Bowers; her granddaughter, Angelica Bowers-Rezac; and her sister, Brenda “Bobbie” Eberts. She will always be Nana to Angelica; and to Taylor and Mason Barnett.
Funeral service was July 20, 2019, at the Johnson-Smith Funeral Home, Baltimore. The family would appreciate memorial donations be made to The American Cancer Society. www.cancer.org
