Sharon Denise Bragg, 50, departed from this life on to the next on Friday, March 25, 2022.

A Celebration of Life service will be held 5-9 p.m. Saturday, April 30 at Bell Buckle Banquet Hall (27 Railroad Square. Bell Buckle, TN 37020). Dinner will be served at 6 p.m. with memorial service starting at 7 p.m. followed by music and fellowship until 9 p.m.

Sharon was born in Shelbyville, TN to Samuel and Brenda Bragg. Sharon was preceded in death by her grandparents, Charles and Blanche Sneed, Sam Bingham and Tina Haskins Bragg (Hawkins), and grandson Gannon Warren Keith. She was also proceeded by her great-grandmother Rebecca Jane Kirkland, with whom she was especially close.

Sharon is survived by her long term partner Ceaser Perez (Shelbyville), three children Jason Christopher Glascoe (Tullahoma), Lauren Hope Glascoe (Tullahoma), Charles Nathan Palafox (Shelbyville), parents Samuel (Brenda) Bragg (Rover), her sister Marie Bragg Sudberry, (Shelbyville), granddaughter Rebecca Christine Keith (Lauren) as well as her nephew Jacob (Shea) Sudberry and niece Olivia J. Burks (Marie). She is also survived by her uncle (Dillon) aunts (Evelyn and Kay) and cousins (Clarissa, Lisa, Rebecca).

Sharon lived her life as if tomorrow was never promised. She always spoke her mind, and if she didn’t her facial expressions would give her thoughts away. She believed it was her responsibility to stand up not only for herself, but also for those who couldn’t stand up for themselves. She was a born protector and self-less, always putting her loved ones needs and wishes above her own. Sharon was an old soul who believed she had lived many lifetimes, and if you knew her, you knew she had the wisdom of years beyond her own. Her quick wit and passion were evident in all things she said and did.

Sharon was a passionate advocate for both women’s rights and civil rights. It was part of her lifetime dream to see a woman in the White House, which she witnessed when Kamala Harris was elected VP in 2020. “Excuse me I’m Speaking” was quite possibly the favorite quote to ever leave a woman’s lips for Sharon. She lived her life empowering the women around her, especially her sister, daughter and granddaughter.

She loved to tell stories of the strong women in her family, and the impact they had on her life, especially Rebecca Jane Kirkland, who in her youth was a wild untamed spirit, a flapper and a moonshiner during the prohibition and Sharon was intensely proud that she came from a long line of fierce and fearless women. Sharon was passionate about her family history and made sure she passed it down to her children, to ensure the strength she came from never be lost to the sands of time, but to be carried on to the next generation through her children and grandchildren.

Sharon was also an avid reader; she felt you could live thousands of lives in the pages of books, and she did just that. Sharon’s favorite author was Stephen King, which says a lot because Sharon easily read more than 2,000 books in her 50 short years of life. Sharon loved art, nature, music, and all things that had soul. She had quite the collection of classic films, her favorite being “Gone With The Wind.” Sharon was a fierce, relentless, force to be reckoned with who put more good karma into this world than she ever herself received, but she was okay with that, because she always believed that good karma would meet her in her next life, and it shall.

Sharon will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her, but she will be remembered as legendary to those who felt her love.
