Our beloved wife and mother, Sharon Diane Faller Mott, received eternal peace by the grace of her Lord and Savior on Feb. 20, 2017, after a lengthy battle with multiple myeloma.
Sharon is preceded in death by her parents, Charles and Leona (VanMeter) Faller, and two brothers, Greg and Robert Faller.
Sharon is survived by her loving husband, Larry, whom she has been with for 61 years and her dog Princess of the home; son, Mike Mott (Michele); daughter, Danette Boyd (Cliff); four grandchildren, Marie Mott Johnson (Cory), Renee Pense (Cody), Ashley Mott (Spencer Hall) and Joey Boyd; two great-grandchildren, Josephine Johnson and Everett “Hunter” Pense and Emerson Pense on the way; brothers, Jerry Faller (Carolyn) and Steve Faller; sister, Judy Faller; many nieces and nephews and Aunt Pat and the entire Murphy family.
Though Sharon was terminal when diagnosed with multiple myeloma July 31, 2011, she never considered herself sick, she “just had cancer.” With her positive attitude, unwavering strength and faith and great care from Dr. Gorukanti, she fought the battle with most not knowing her pain.
Sharon was one of the original founders of Cuttin’ Tails for Cancer. She served as the financial secretary and was a member of the board of directors. She was a life member of the Flat Rock Village Red Hatters. She served as the president of the B.P.O. Does No. 259 in Oklahoma City. Her working career ended as an administrative assistant to Sen. David Meyers at the Oklahoma State Capitol.
She cherished her family and always put them first. She is also known and loved by many all across the country from her years of charitable work.
Memorial service will be 11 a.m. Saturday at Fentress Mortuary. Immediately following the service the family will receive guests at their home in Van Buren.
Sharon has requested in lieu of flowers that memorial contributions be made in her honor to Cuttin’ Tails for Cancer, 9405 Bridgeford Circle, Fort Smith, AR 72908, so that more wigs can be made for local cancer patients.
