Sharon McCloud, 70, of Washington Courthouse, passed away on Sunday, March 19, 2023.
Born in Ashtabula, Ohio on May 20, 1952 to Herbert (deceased) and Viola Canter. Sharon was
the beloved wife of Dan (Meathead) McCloud Jr. and cherished mother to Danny (Christina
Lavallie) McCloud III of Naples, Florida, and Dawn (Scott) Griffith of Columbus, Ohio. She was
the loving sister to Carl (Jan) Canter, Jesse Canter, Dale Canter, and Todd Canter, as well as
Shirley Balcomb-Miller and Cindy Canter. Sharon was also the proud grandmother to Olivia and
Julia Griffith, Sammy Hall, Tristan Rhodes, and a soon-to-be great-grandmother to a baby boy,
Terry Lee, due in April. Sharon was also blessed to have many loving nieces, nephews, and
Sharon had a passion for giving back to her community, having sent thousands of hand-sewn
garments to Africa and Honduras and having created countless handmade blankets and baby
clothes for those in need. She was also known for her love of animals, having rescued not only
cats and dogs, but many other animals in need of a loving home. Her closest canine companions
were Lassie, Laddie, Jazzy, Pollyanna, Zoey, and Sabrina.
Sharon was also an active member in the mission and service committees of her church and was
always eager to lend a helping hand or provide a meal when called upon.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made in her honor to Courthouse Nazarene of
Washington Courthouse 990 ST RT 41 SW Washington C.H., OHIO, for their Church’s Local Homeless Mission Fund or to an animal
rescue of your choice.
The family would like to express their sincerest gratitude to the staff at Courthouse Manor for
their loving care.
Per Sharon's wishes, there will be no viewing. However, a graveside service will be held at 1pm
on March 24, 2023, at Kelloggsville Cemetery with a luncheon to follow at Kelloggsville
Nazarene 4841 Buhnell rd. Conneaut, OH 44030. All are welcome.
Though Sharon has left us, she will remain in our hearts forever. May she find peace in her new
home ‘down the road’
