Mrs. Judy Sharp, age 77, of Pittsburg, passed away on Wednesday, May 11, 2022 at her home in Pittsburg. She was born July 20, 1944 to Willard Marcelaus Taylor and Bertha Pearl Winn Taylor in Houston, Texas.

She was a florist and homemaker, and a member of Macedonia Missionary Baptist Church in Pittsburg. She enjoyed, fishing, quilting, and sewing. Judy and Ira have known each other since they were kids. Ira would ride by her daddy's house each day in the back of a pickup truck heading to work, she would always make sure she was out on the front porch so that they could wave at each other. They started dating when she was 14 and he was 17 and married 3 years later and built a loving Christian family over the next 60 plus years. Their love of fishing together is shared with the many stories of who caught the most and the biggest fish of the day with the best story being when she got mad because her line kept getting hung in the brush so she threw her entire rod and reel in the lake and said I am done fishing now.

She is survived by her husband of 61 years, Ira Sharp; sons, James Christopher Sharp and wife Deloris, and D.W.
