Sharron Farrell Locklear, age 74, of Buda, passed away Tuesday, February 21, 2017.
Sharron’s talents spanned a variety of careers that included time spent working at IRS, Austin State Hospital, Employees Retirement System of Texas, and Jimmie Farrell Electric. Quilting and crafting were two of her many talents, but there was nothing she wouldn’t want to try. She was an active member of the Buda Bee’s Quilt Club and many of her family and friends were gifted with quilts designed and made with love. She had a knack for making those around her feel loved, especially through her gifts. Sometimes her gifts of love came in the form of a can of Pringles and a Gatorade on a Friday afternoon.
Daughter, Sister, Wife, Mother, Gran and Friend. She touched many lives in her 74 years. She will be remembered for her for dedication to family and friends, feisty spirit, organization and endless perseverance. She loved Jesus with all her heart and never hesitated to talk about him or call on him when she needed to. Throughout her life she was an active member in many churches, but most recently she was a member of the First Baptist Church of Buda.
Sharron’s greatest blessing was being ‘Gran’ to 5 amazing grandchildren and 6 beautiful great-grandchildren. Gran was probably the best grandma ever and she was always there when there were important events and she always supported her grandchildren and great-grandchildren with her love. Gran and her babies lived by a different set of rules when they were together, and the parent that tried to tell her different, well they needed to watch out. She was also completely devoted to her furbaby Miss Snickers.
Sharron was preceded in death by her parents, C.L. Hocker, Sr. and Juanita Hazelwood; her first husband, Joe Farrell and her second husband, Benny Locklear.
Survivors include her step-mother, Matilda Hocker; sister, Madge McNamara; brother, C.L. Hocker, Jr. & wife, Pat; her children, JJ Farrell & wife, Sara, Sheri Brady & husband, Jud, and Teri Wenck & husband, Chris, step-son BJ Locklear; grandchildren, Stacy Rose & husband, Jonathan, Margret Jain & husband, Ravi, Andi Hodgson, Christian Wenck and Archer Wenck; great grandchildren, Mason Rose, Hunter Rose, Emma Jain, Sophia Jain, Addison Brock and Daniel Espinal; and Snickers, her faithful dog.
