WASHINGTONVILLE, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – Connie Lynn (Paynter) Sharer, 58, of Washingtonville, Ohio passed away at her home at 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, November 10, 2020.
Connie was born on May 31, 1962, in East Liverpool, Ohio, the daughter of the late Franklin and Donna (Palmer) Paynter.
Connie attended high school in Bowie, Maryland and graduated in 1980.
She attended church at Columbiana First United Methodist Church in Columbiana.
Connie and her husband, Kevin celebrated 17 years of marriage, having been married on February 16, 2003.
Connie was employed at the Marathon Gas Station in downtown Columbiana as a cashier and was a seasonal employee at Dillon Fruit Farm in Lisbon.
Connie was a very creative person and had a talent for arts and crafts. Some that she enjoyed most were cross-stitching and crocheting. She spent many hours in her vegetable garden and looked forward to harvesting and canning the fruits of her labor. To say Connie loved to cook would be an understatement. She had a passion for cooking. While Connie enjoyed crafting, gardening and cooking it was her desire to use these gifts to serve others that was truly her heartbeat. She crocheted hats for the homeless, volunteered at the Caring Hands Food Pantry and was in charge of the kitchen at the Beaver Creek Sportsman Club in Washingtonville.
Connie was huge on family, not only her family but beyond. She had a heart that had no bounds and loved with every part of it. She will be missed but the love and compassion she shared with others will remain forever.
Along with her husband, Connie is survived by her children: four daughters, Joleen (Autumn) Brightwell of Canfield, Holly (Scott) Greer of Tennessee, Megin Ashley of Pennsylvania and Dallas Sharer of Cleveland; two sons, Donald (Lavra) Sharer of Delaware and Kevin (Melissa) Sharer of South Carolina; 13 grandchildren and one great-grandchild. She is also survived by three sisters, Tina (Randi Rosensweig) Snee of Maryland, Darlene (Van) Engdahl of Virginia and Denise (Michael) Peterson of Struthers and two brothers, Sam (Elizabeth) Snee of Washington D.C. and Steve (Angelia) Paynter of Austintown.
In addition to her parents, Connie is preceded in death by a sister, Sandra Snee, who passed away in 2015.
