Sharon “Shay” Denice Miles, 68, of Amory, Mississippi formerly of Gary, Indiana, passed away December 29, 2019, with her family by her side.  Born on February 12, 1951 in Gary, Indiana, Sharon was preceded by her parents, Virginia and Paul Holmes; brother, Lonnie Holmes; nephew, Ronald Davis; and niece, Col. Dr. Inez Wright. Sharon graduated from Roosevelt High School in 1969 and attended Tuskegee University for a short time.  Sharon went on to serve in the Army Reserves.  Although she was retired, she still worked as a transportation coordinator for BNSF Railway until she passed.

She met Darryl Clayton in 1975 and they lived together in Gary before they were blessed with a child, Darria “KoKo” Clayton (Oliver) in 1977.  Later in life, Sharon met the love of her life, Georgia (Ann) Wright in 2008 and they lived together in Amory, Mississippi until her untimely passing. 

Sharon is survived by her only child, Darria Oliver; her two granddaughters, Marissa and Malia Moore; partner, Georgia Wright; daughter-in-law, Erica Oliver; and step-grandchildren, Kobe Barton and Kailey Gibbs. Sharon is also survived by her siblings, Arleen Redmond of Las Vegas, Nevada, Marva (Jean) Holmes of Houston, Texas and Al (Moochie) Holmes of Gary, Indiana.

Sharon was an avid card player and a dedicated sports fan and watched many football and basketball games. She treasured her family and embraced every moment with them. She especially loved her role as Grandma. She had a vivacious personality and always made people around her laugh. Her sense of humor and bellowing laugh are the gifts that she left with all of those who love her.  She made friends everywhere she went. 

Please join us in celebrating Sharon’s life and legacy.
