Sharon A. (Hardwick) Kamla, 81, Nevada, MO passed away on Thursday, December 17, 2020 at St. Luke’s Hospice House in Kansas City, MO from complications of a heart condition.

Sharon was born August 23, 1939 in Benkelman, Nebraska to Omar W. and Marjorie M. (Baney) Hardwick. She spent her childhood in Benkelman, graduating from high school in 1957.

Sharon worked at various bookkeeping jobs, finally settling on secretary/bookkeeping in Bird City, KS at Northwest Kansas Electric Coop. She worked at that job until her retirement.
