January 14, 1943 - July 21, 2021
Heaven gained the sweetest, strongest soul on July 21, 2021. Sharon Lee Gatewood Batts, 78 was born on January 14,1943; daughter of the late Ivan Eugene and Martha Virginia (Spaugh) Harmon. Sharon was our mom, wife to John R Batts, the OG (Original Grandma) to the Gatewood kids, Grandma & Great Grandma to the Batts Family. Sharon is healed and has hopefully found her cowboy boots by now. Sharon was a 1961 graduate of Whitestown High School and a graduate of Indiana Business College. She spent the majority of her career employed by Hazelrigg Grain. Many years one would find Sharon involved in the Boone County 4-H Horse & Pony Club. Sharon was a fair enthusiast at the state and county level and was always ready for an invite to the fair. In the spring of 2000 Sharon fell in love with a race car driver and the Gatewood Batts legacy began. John and Sharon spent 20+years traveling the US, collecting friends and memories. Residing in Boone County all her life, the Harmon/Gatewood/Batts name always promised dialogue that Sharon’s family continues to embrace. Sharon’s smile was contagious. Her grandchildren loved to entertain her with their stories and dreams of wanderlust. Perhaps her greatest joy and the assurance of a smile was her son, Brian. Sharon will be remembered the most by: Brian E. (Kelli) Gatewood of Avon; grandchildren, Cody Gatewood, William Gatewood and Kaylee Gatewood, all of Avon; loved companion, John R. Batts of Advance; cherished Batts children, grandchildren, great grandchildren; along with several nieces and nephews from the Gatewood, Harmon, Batts families. In addition to her parents, Sharon was preceded in death by one brother, Richard E. Harmon. Even though Sharon’s journey is complete we will gather one more time to celebrate together. Visitation will be held on Thursday, July 29, 2021, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.at Myers Mortuary, 1502 North Lebanon Street, Lebanon, Indiana.
