Sharon Johnson Armeen
Sharon Johnson Armeen,61, passed away Saturday, August 19, 2017, surrounded by her loving family.
Born October 3, 1955, a daughter of the late Robert William and Nannie Louise Porter Johnson of Charlotte, NC. She also was pre-deceased by a son, Adam.
Following high school, she attended Southeastern Financial Institute where she studied business. She married the love of her life and best friend Ronnie Armeen, whom she had met and became sweethearts with in high school. They knew each other over 46 years and built a beautiful life together raising their children and managing their numerous businesses. Sharon served as Executive VP of Eastway Lock & Key and Security Systems of Charlotte, SHA-RON Investments, LLC, and Coastal Contract Hardware, Coastal Overhead Doors, and Eastway Lock & Key of Myrtle Beach. Her true passion was spending time with her children and grandchildren. She made being a “Mimi” look so easy but she put so much time into planning to ensure they experienced the best. Jordan-her “joy” and Kade-her “boy” that adds sparkle to her life, will always have so many fond memories of the time they shared. During her illness, she was blessed with a new grandson, Aiden Armeen. She beamed as she held him for the first time. One of her greatest sorrows is that she would not be able to spend the time with Aiden as she did with the rest of her grandchildren. The Lord did make possible the opportunity for her to hold him and rock him this fourth of July.
Sharon loved the Lord and was a true example of a Christian. She was a member of Hickory Grove Baptist Church in Charlotte and Ocean View Baptist Church in Myrtle Beach. At Ocean View Baptist she worked with the KidStuf Program, served on the Scholarship committee, director of Grief Share ministry, and with her daughter, Shane, and family, ran the Backpack Lunch Program supporting Myrtle Beach Primary School.
She suffered the worst possible loss…that of a child…her beloved Adam. Then turned that sorrow into efforts to help others through her Grief Share Program at Ocean View Baptist.
Memories of Sharon could go on forever but they wouldn’t be complete without mentioning how much she enjoyed shopping!! Her sister friends loved sharing these times and their many cups of coffee and conversations associated with them. She loved to share laughter with those around her. Her kind, caring, positive, compassionate spirit will be missed by so many. She made us want to be a better person. Heaven has surely gained one of the best.
Our efforts to fully portray Sharon’s kindness and character won’t be adequate, but if you knew her, you will know the rest of the story!
