Sharon Hurd

Maryland Independent - - News -

Sharon Hurd was born in Wash­ing­ton, DC, on Au­gust 20, 1942, the only child of Doris DeBow Mi­coly and Rul­doph M. Mi­coly. She was the beloved wife of R.J. “Jack” Hurd, the mother of three, and a dot­ing grand­mother of four.

Raised in the idyl­lic neigh­bor­hood of District Heights, Sharon was a 1960 grad­u­ate of Suit­land High School, and a 1962 grad­u­ate of the Wash­ing­ton Hos­pi­tal Cen­ter School of Nurs­ing, where she took up res­i­dency as a floor nurse. Dur­ing one shift, a pa­tient from an­other floor came in to see his mother. In that mo­ment, an en­dur­ing love be­gan. Jack told Sharon he was go­ing to marry her on their sec­ond date and he did not leave her side un­til his death two years ago.

Sharon and Jack’s was the ro­mance of nov­els and fairy­tales — the pu­rity of devo­tion so rare and spe­cial that it is cov­eted by the rest of the world, and made mytho­log­i­cal in its ex­is­tence. And it was ab­so­lutely true for them. Beloved wife. Within the con­straints of those two very com­monly used words, Sharon lived, loved, and raised her fam­ily. And within those two words, a world that had shat­tered upon their part­ing two years pre­vi­ously has again been made whole. Ser­vices and In­ter­ment are pri­vate. In lieu of flow­ers, memo­rial con­tri­bu­tions may be made to Hos­pice of Charles County, 2505 Davis Road, Wal­dorf, MD 20603.
