Sharon Louise King Ingram Palfreyman, 70, of Claysville, was called home Tuesday, May 2, 2017, following a courageous three-year battle with small cell lung cancer. Family say she is now "somewhere over the rainbow." She was surrounded by her loving family, in the home of Mark and Stacey Malli.
She was born February 14, 1947, in Wheeling, W.Va., a daughter of Robert Franklin and Leona Riggle King.
She was a 1965 graduate of McGuffey High School and acquired a beautician's license from Penn Commercial in Washington.
She was a lifelong member at First Christian Church, West Alexander.
She worked as a beautician in several shops in Washington and at Brockway Glass as a packer, until the factory closed in 1983. She worked as a valet cashier at the casino in Washington, until her health required her to retire.
She loved to golf. Her favorite partners were her father, Frank King, and sister, Barb Barchiesi, among many others. She belonged to many golf leagues at Dogwood Hills, Ponderosa Golf Course, Indian Run and others. She worked at Dogwood Hills as a groundskeeper and at Rancho Del Rey, Atwater, Calif., in the Pro Shop. When her health prohibited her from doing what she loved, she continued to enjoy golf by watching it on television.
On August 8, 1965, she married her high school sweetheart, Jerry Ingram, and on November 2, 1980, she married Edward Palfreyman. Both survive.
