Sharon A. Carver

Sharon Ann Carver was joined with Christ on Tuesday, September 11, 2001. Her physical life ended at the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, when attacked by terrorists. 

Sharon was born March 2, 1963, in Columbia, South Carolina to Mary Evelyn Wilkes-Carver and Arthur Carver, who preceded her in death. Sharon was the sixth of seven children. She was raised in the Washington, DC metropolitan area by her mother who nicknamed her “Little Emma,” after her grandmother. 

In 2001, Sharon received her Masters degree in Business Administration from Strayer University. In 1991 she earned a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from the University of the District of Columbia. She worked as an Accountant for the Department of the Army from 1991 to 2001. She served the Federal Government for 16 years. Sharon was very industrious and took great pride in doing her job well. She loved her country and was very patriotic. 

Sharon was most happy spending quality time with her family and friends, especially her nieces and nephews. She would often volunteer to go on school field trips and attend Girl Scout meetings with her nieces. She was always motivating her nieces and nephews to pursue higher education. During her leisure time she enjoyed traveling, watching good movies and listening to jazz. 

Sharon was baptized on Easter Sunday, April 14, 1996, at Free Gospel Deliverance Church in Coral Hills, Maryland, by Bishop Ralph Greene, founder and Pastor. She was very humbled to God. Her soul was full of life – a dear sister totally dedicated to the well being of her family and a true friend to many. Sharon will mostly be remembered for her honesty and bluntness, her love of life and family, and her big beautiful smile. While we family and friends will all miss Sharon, we must remember that she is where we all someday hope to be, with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 

Sharon, a portion of our hearts will always feel empty without you. Although you were the sixth oldest (our baby sister), somehow, as time went by, you took on the role of the eldest sibling. You became the grandmother for those in the family who needed that love, the mother to us all, a strong family guide we all looked up to for approval, and a best friend. We were blessed to have you. The wonderful times we shared are embedded in our souls forever. 

Sharon leaves to cherish her loving memory, two brothers, Arthur and Reginald Carver; four sisters, Sylvia, Veronica and Janet Carver, and Tangela Wilkes; sister-in-law, Sandra; eleven nieces and nephews, Miguel, Tikisha, Andrea, Sean, Stephanie, Felicia, Carmel, Jarryd, McKayla, Tyra and Sandra; great nieces and nephews, Olivia, Charnice, Toni and Sire; and extended family friends, Jeanette West, Darrell Johnson, and a dedicated best friend of 30 years, Don Davis.
