Sharron C. Hayworth

Sharron Cornelia Hayworth (74) of Blanch, died peacefully at Caswell/Alamance Hospice House on Friday, January 22, 2021. Her long-fought battle with cancer ended, and her journey to heaven is complete. 

Born July 28, 1946, in Greensboro, NC, Sharron lived a life full of grace, faith, and style, and what some would consider old-fashioned manners. We often told our children, “If Sharron does it, then you can do it too.”

Her manners provided a life- long example for our children to follow. She gave her life to the education of children across four counties in North Carolina. She started her career in Randolph County Schools, moved to Brunswick County Schools, where she retired from teaching, and then continued to impact children’s lives as a substitute teacher in Person and Caswell County Schools. Her love of children was evident in her 37+ years in education. In addition to her love of children, Sharron spent many years caring for her parents Rufus and Dorothy until their deaths. 

Sharron loved her pets across the years. She often talked of the collies she owned as a child, and eventually found her love of poodles which completed her family and happy home. She loved to cross-stitch, bake, travel, and spend time with her friends and adopted family that she leaves behind. 

Sharron is survived by her aunt, Joyce Albright Brown, and cousin, Pamela Brown Caldwell both of Belmont, NC.

Sharron is survived by her close friends and informally adopted family, Greg and Deanene Deaton of Blanch, Amanda and Jess Tucker, grandchildren Jake and Gus, of Haw River. Russell Deaton and grandson, Rhodes, of Morrisville, NC. Long-time friend and informally adopted mother, Jean Garvin, of Ocean Isle Beach NC. 

Sharron is preceded in death by her parents, Rufus King Hayworth, and Dorothy Parsons Hayworth. 

Please honor Sharron through memorials to Alamance/Caswell Hospice who provided comfort and care in her final days. Their address is 914 Chapel Hill Road, Burlington, NC 27215. The nurses and staff at Hospice House provided essential care for a pain-free and peaceful transition to heaven. 

A private service will be held in honor of Sharron on a date still to be determined.
