Sharon "Sharona" Conner Carpenter, age 69, of Grand Rapids passed away on Monday afternoon, September 13, 2010. Sharon was the wife of Gordon Carpenter; daughter of Arthur and Mae Conner, all of whom preceded her in death. Beloved mother of Holly (Dan) Van Popering and Nikki Olson; dear grandmother of Taylor Olson, all of Grand Rapids. Brothers: Mike Conner, Gary Conner of Texas; sisters, Char Bonar of Wisconsin, Mary Guy of Texas, and Wanda Wilfong of Grand Rapids. Sharon loved to worship her Yeshua as a Messianic dancer at Adat Eytz Chayim, Tree of Life Messianic Congregation where she was a member, as well as for many outside events. Both she and Gordy had made numerous trips to Israel to work in a kibbutz and other places to bless the Jewish people. Many a friend enjoyed bouquets from Sharon's lovely garden and her loves of Challah Bread, and sweet evenings of fellowship were always a hit. Most of all, her friends and family will miss her cheerful zest for life.
