Marian Eileen Sharp

Marian Eileen Sharp (nee Finnerty), 92 of Mullica Hill, passed away Wednesday July 3, 2013.

Born in Philadelphia, Pa., Mrs. Sharp graduated from Atlantic City High School and opened the first antique store, Hill Creek House at 32 N. Main Street, in Mullica Hill. In later years she also opened Hill Creek Country Store at 44 N. Main Street, Mullica Hill.  She served as Director of the Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP), at Gloucester County Community College until she retired at age 79. She was an active member of The Red Hat Society, Senior Citizens Club of Mullica Hill, and Senior Citizens Club of South Harrison Township.  She took enormous pride in her family and friends, who will miss her terribly, while drawing inspiration from the life she lived in her way and on her terms. She was often referred to as a combination of Millicent Fenwick, the Unsinkable Molly Brown and the Energizer Bunny!

(Kathleen Wood) of Cherry Hill, NJ.    She is survived by her daughter, Lois Maxam (William) of Coronado, CA and son Michael (Beverly d) of West Chester, PA; Sara (Sue) Pyne of West Chester, PA,;  her dear sister, Mary Frances Valente (Anthony A. d) of Charlottesville, VA., four grandchildren Zack Maxam of Newport Beach, CA, Lauren Thrasher (Garret) of Coronado, CA, Sharon (Wesley) Hampton of Clayton, NJ and Brett Sharp (Kelli) of Gloucester City, NJ ; seven great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandchild and eight nieces and nephews.

We keep in touch with the family and each and every day you remain near to us as we glance at a painting Michael shared with us that Fred had done. You are no longer tangible but what a wonderful spirit you have left with us all."

All my love,
Michael
