Remembering Sharon McKanze
                                   by Glen Kuban    

     It was with great sadness that we learned of the sudden passing of Sharon McKanze on May 20, 2022.
     Sharon was an active club member for many years and a dear friend to many of us. Beth Krumhansl and I, who went to high school with Sharon, have many special memories during our countless travels, get-togethers, and activities ever since.
     Even through various struggles, she maintained a warm and generous spirit - always ready to lend a hand or ear to anyone in need.
     For years, she took it upon herself to buy the refreshments for our club meetings, and
along with Beth, regularly came early to set up the tables. Even though the donation can often did not cover what she spent, she did not complain or ask for compensation.
     Just before she passed, she and I were planning on riding together to our recent field trip to the Indiana quarries, which were among her favorite collecting sites. It was hard not to think of her often during the weekend, almost expecting her to appear from behind the rocks at any moment, asking what we had found and sharing her finds. She will be greatly missed.
