According to her obituary posted below, Cassidy Alexa Sharp, daughter of Aaron and Melissa Sawyers Sharp, was born August 6, 1997 in Houston, Missouri:

“Cassidy is survived by her loving parents, Aaron Sharp of Grovespring, Missouri and Melissa Sharp of Hartville, Missouri; her two sisters, Caitlyn and Cori, both of Hartville, Missouri; her maternal grandparents, Ronnie and Della Sawyers, of Hartville; her paternal grandparents, Donald and Shirley Sharp, of Grovespring, Missouri; two uncles, Ronny Sawyers and his wife Jolene, of Norwood, Missouri and Eric Sharp of Springfield, Missouri; four cousins; Tre`, Mason, and Stone Sawyers, and Nathan Sharp; her great-grandmother, Avis Garner of Grovespring, Missouri; other relatives, and many caring friends.

Cassidy was raised in the Hartville-Grovespring area and attended Grovespring Elementary School and Hartville High School. While she was in high school she worked to make a little extra money as a dog sitter for several pets. She began to work at Copeland back in January as an assembly worker.

Cassidy was baptized at Camp Calvary while she was still in school. Cassidy was very strong in her convictions and her work and spiritual life showed how dedicated she really was.

Cassidy was an exceptional artist and enjoyed creating many different works. Anything from freehand drawing to writing to cooking, she had an incredible imagination. She especially enjoyed drawing so much, that her family and close friends started calling her “Doodlebug” whenever she was around. Cassidy was a gentle and caring soul. She loved animals and would never hurt another living creature on the face of the earth. Cassidy was a loving daughter, sister, granddaughter, niece, cousin, and caring friend. We celebrate her wonderful life and will always cherish the many happy memories she created with us. ”
