Sharyn was born on May 20, 1938 in Indianapolis, IN to
the late Roy King and Florence McCollum King. She was
a 1956 graduate of Zionsville High school in Zionsville IN.
Shortly after graduation she began her lifelong dream of
being married and raising a family of five children. In
addition, she was active in the family real estate business
for several years.
Once her family was older, she became very active in her
church and several different ministries including; Stevens
Ministries, Marriage Mentoring, and Alpha. She also was
an active member of the Salty Sisters, DNG, Empty
Nesters, and couples life group. Her greatest ministry,
however, was to her family especially the grandchildren.
She is survived by her Husband of 61 years, Ralph.
Five children and spouses: Sherry (Buddy), Allen (Jenna),
Rex (Jenny), Randy (Carolyn), and Rick (Celeste); ten
grandchildren: Alyssa, Jillian, Dylan, Jennifer, Jim, Joshua,

grandchildren Molly, Eisley and Merrick; two brothers: Roy
King (Deanna) of Zionsville, IN and Ron King (Joanna) of

step great grandchildren.
Her greatest desire to all who are reading this, especially
her family, that they be touched by the Holy Spirit and to
connect with Jesus Christ. Every day let Him rule their life,
and I will see you again in heaven.

produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your
endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ
