Harris-Gause, Sharon Obituary

Lady Sharon's Journey 


On December 20th, 2020, our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, called Sharon home. She was born October 12th, 1956 to the late Walter C. Harris and late Addie G. Abrams, in Newport News, VA. Sharon graduated from McKinley Technical High School (Washington, DC) in 1974, thereafter completed several college courses and later served in the United States Air Force, released with an honorable discharge in 1979.


Sharon retired after serving over 20 years of service with the U.S. Department of Education (Washington, DC), as a Program Specialist for the Technology in Education Program (TEP), and later served as Executive Vice President for the AFGE Council 252 (2008 - 2014), and President for the AFGE Local 2607 (2014 – 2018). Sharon took great pride and passion in her work and fought hard for the rights of the local union members of AFGE. Her dedication to her team was untouched and she loved sharing her great success stories with family; her professionalism and hard work was admired by many. 


Sharon was a fun-loving character with a beautiful spirit, fun sense of humor, taste of class, and a smile that warmed the room. She enjoyed cooking, entertaining for family and friends, and spending time with her grandchildren. Sharon loved hard, and went over and beyond to let others know how much she cared. She was a great listener and gave the best guidance and support when needed. She welcomed all and you always felt loved when seeing her.


Sharon was predeceased by her mother Addie G. Abrams, father Walter C. Harris, one sister Terri Stevenson, and one brother Montel Harris.


Sharon leaves to cherish her precious memories her husband: Michael T. Gause; three daughters: Giavonna N. Harris-Morgan, Lauren A. Morgan and Lorielle A. Morgan; sister: Brenda L. Williams (Newport News, VA); four brothers: Garry (Brenda) Stevenson (Capital Heights, MD), Larry Stevenson (Washington, DC), Eric (Shannon) Harris (Hampton, VA), Walter C. Harris III (Carrollton, VA); three grandchildren: Dylan Z. Allen-Morgan, Deon Wakefield, Jr., Demi M. Green, and a host of nieces, nephews, family and friends.
