Sharon Faye (McKendree) Craven

June 20, 1955 — January 1, 2022



Sharon Faye Craven passed away surrounded by her loving family on Saturday, January 1, 2022 at Mercy Health Lourdes Hospital.

Sharon was born in Paducah, KY on June 20, 1955 to the late James McKendree and Carrie Edna (Smith) McKendree. She was a faithful wife and God-fearing Christian and attended Oaklawn Baptist Church and later, Southland Baptist Temple. Sharon had a warm, sweet smile. She was patient and selfless, always ready to serve, and considered a “wonderful” woman by many. Sharon worked various retail jobs and also spent many years as a stay at home mom. However, she considered her greatest calling to be a doting “Nana” to her ten grandchildren. She also enjoyed planting wildflowers and tending her garden, shopping with her sisters, and had a love of unsweet tea with lemon from McDonald’s. She will be remembered for her great love of family especially her grandchildren.

She is survived by her husband of 45 years Robert Earl Craven; her step son Tony (Mary) of Grand Chain, IL, daughter Tosha Sutton of Paducah, and sons Robert Dee (Jennifer) of Benton, and Shawn (Andrea) of Kevil; her sisters Diane Thompson (Mike) and Carolyn Nelson (Jimmy), both of Paducah, and Sheila Davis of Kevil; ten grandchildren Gwyneth Sutton, Greyson Sutton, Addie Craven, Macy Craven, Inman Craven, Lynlee Craven, Presley Craven, Caroline Craven, Sadie Craven and Tuff Craven; and numerous nieces and nephews.
