     Sharon Goorsky was born in Chicago, Illinois on September 14, 1948. Her dad and mom James and LaVerne (Legere) Clary Sr. raised Sharon in the Yuba area where she was the last class to leave the old Hillsboro HS and start the new, class of ‘66’. On July 5, 1975 Sharon Ann (Goorsky) Clary (she took the name Clary legally for her own in 1967) married Kenneth Duane Hayes in West Lima, Wisconsin. It was in Yuba that Sharon first started raising registered Holsteins. She looked forward every year to her volunteering at the Yuba Fireman’s Horse Pulling Association. Sharon had a great love for gardening and flowers, all year long, but particularly the spring. She loved all sorts of crafts and was especially fond of her wood paintings. Out-of-doors she also enjoyed deer hunting right up until life wouldn’t allow it. Sharon loved baking and past many tips and recipes for generations to enjoy. And Sharon loved to go camping, especially every anniversary to get away. But she never went far from the Grandchildren who have always come first with grandma’s love, time, sharing and attention.

     She did find time to work though, as a receptionist, as a sales clerk, as an administrative assistant, for places like Yuba Implement, Clary Enterprises, Mercury Industries, Land-o-Lakes and Dean Foods. She was a member of the Onalaska womens American Legion Auxiliary, Post 336, and past President of the Ladies Auxiliary at the Viroqua American Legion Post 138. It was while in Viroqua that Sharon was twice recognized as the Unit ‘Member of Year’ throughout the state of Wisconsin once in 1994 then in 2002.      God bless our memories of Sharon.


     Sharon is survived by; her loving husband Ken, her children Vernaleana (Timothy) Loback and Korey (Heather) Hayes, and her grandchildren Kayla Hayes, Elizabeth Hayes, Rylee Teschner, Alissa Trainor, Elise Trainor, and Brook Hayes. She is further survived by; her brother Robert (Monica) Clary and very special loved ones Dustin Dyer and Randy Wilson as well as many cousins, nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles and in-laws. She was preceded in death by her parents.
