Sharon Kay, the daughter of Roy and Lenora “Jo” (Wicker) Cummings, was born Feb. 2, 1947 in Des Moines, joining her twin sisters Marilyn and Carolyn. The family moved to Crystal Lake for a few years and then to Belmond.
Sharon was baptized and attended the Belmond United Methodist Church. She attended Belmond Community Schools, graduating with the Class of 1965. She was a cheerleader during her school years and carried this passion for her community throughout her life.
Sharon married Kenneth Skrovig on June 24, 1968 at the Belmond United Methodist Church. They resided in Clarion where they raised their daughters Cyndi, Myndi and Lyndi. Ken was employed for Wright County REC (Prairie Energy) and Sharon was employed as office manager for Wright County Public Health from the late 1970’s until the early 2000’s. She retired to care for Ken when his health declined. Following his death Sharon continued to live in Clarion before returning to Belmond.
Sharon was proud of her roles as a loving wife, mom and grandma. Sharon and Kenneth enjoyed dancing, attending their daughters’ activities, and traveling in their motorhome. A few of their destinations included Montana, Tennessee, Florida, and local getaways to Lake Cornelia and Brushy Creek. A favorite trip was to Hawaii.
Sharon had a strong faith life and instilled this in her children. She and Kenneth and the family had attended First Lutheran in Clarion and Samuel Lutheran in Eagle Grove, and later the Belmond United Methodist.
Sharon was a cheerleader for her family and looked forward to any occasion they would be together. She loved to attend as many of her grandchildren’s activities as she could. She was a people person who loved to keep up on the happenings of family and friends. She always turned the focus on others and not herself. Sharon was meticulous and a lady of routine, who loved her home, flowers, watching her favorite shows, daily phone calls with family and friends, and her cat Debbie. In addition to being involved in her churches, she was a past mem-ber of the Culture Club, Garden Club, and Clarmond Country Club.
Those who had the privilege of knowing her will reflect fondly upon her love for others, light hearted and quirky sense of humor, boundless forgiveness, and her trademark “I adore you!” as she parted ways.
Sharon is survived by her daughters: Cyndi (Eric) Rector, of Clarion, Myndi (Lincoln) Morgan of Eagle Grove, and Lyndi (Nate McVey) Skrovig of Belmond; grandchildren Mackenzie Smith, Madison Rector, Maycie Rector, Mason Rector, Laine Morgan, Blake Morgan, Kenedie Gabrielson, Bradan Gabrielson, Quinn Gabrielson, Taylor McVey, and Tristan McVey; great-grandchildren Keegan and Alexander; mother-in-law Doris Skrovig of Dows; sister-in-law Sheri (Paul) Harrington of Dows; and brother-in-law Gary Skiye of Belmond.
