Sheree Lynn Harmon was born on January 6, 1957 in Burlington, North Carolina to Samuel and Peggy (Clark) Harmon. She was married to Walter Holm in January of 1974. She later married Donald DeWulf on April 21, 2000 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Sheree worked as a Sales Manager for Frontier Group/Steeplegate Inns in both Clinton and Davenport. She also worked at Wholistic Family Chiropractic, Davenport, as a Certified Wholistic Therapist and at the Healing Heart Center. She became passionate about holistic healing after personally experiencing its benefits.
Traveling, going to the ocean and watching sunrises and sunsets were a few of the things Sheree loved to do. She looked forward to her annual trips to Mexico, North Carolina and Florida, being around her family and friends, shopping at Von Maur and her Thursday golf outings with the ladies at Springbrook Country Club. Sheree was known and loved for her distinctive laugh and for “blowing her horn” at birthdays or special occasions.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to St. Joseph’s Catholic School or Genesis Hospice.
