harron was a great lady who assisted me many times in matters at Family Court. She always had a smile and a kind thing to say. She also had a great sense of humor! Condolences to her family!

I worked with Sharron at family court. She always drank from a fancy tea cup on a saucer she kept on her desk.

Sharron taught all of the newbie lawyers how to be effective. She worked for John Mendoza and when he retired, then she worked for others. She was a great friend and kind heart. Im sorry that after her retirement we lost touch, but grateful she had a full life with all of her children, grandchildren and the greats. May her memory forever be a blessing.

I got to know Sharron when she worked for my husband John Mendoza as his legal secretary in district court. She was a great worker and a wonderful person. We had many great times together.

Heart broken. Such a kind and loving person. I'm so happy I was part of her life for a time. I feel like she truly cared about my lost 16-18 year old self. I'm forever grateful. Rest in peace dear Sharron.
