It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our loving and devoted
mother. She went home to the lord on January 25, 2022.
She was born on June 3, 1943 in Detroit Michigan. She spent her younger years
in Michigan where she met our father, Thomas Lee Kronsperger. After marrying
and having two children, Kris and Thomas, they moved to Gulfport Florida in
1970. She raised her family and lived most of her life in Gulfport, moving to the
north east part of Saint Petersburg in her later years.
Sharon loved children and worked 30 years as a baker at Bay Point elementary
and middle schools. Mom’s love for baking extended all her life. She loved to
bake and share cookie recipes with her great grandchildren. She was a Girl Scout
leader in Gulfport for ten years where she was known as “Mom K” by all the
girls. Sharon and husband Tom loved national parks and travel. In later years
they were able to enjoy seeing many places. Their favorite was cruising to
Alaska. Sharon was able to keep a small vacation home in North Carolina to be
close to her great granddaughters. Mom was a member of The Bridge
Community Church in Clearwater Fl where she taught Sunday School and
Vacation Bible School. In later years she loved to cook meals and give rides to
elderly friends to and from church or needed appointments. Sharon always
loved to serve and be a help to others in need.
Sharon was preceded in death by her father Gilbert Lange, mother Dorothy
Lange, her husband Thomas L. Kronsperger, her brother Donald Lange and a
great granddaughter Ana Luiza. She is survived by her brother, William (Bud)
Lange, her two children, daughter Kris A. Wysong and husband Bill, her son
Thomas G. Kronsperger and wife Marie. Sharon has eight grandchildren, Gina,
Justin, Thomas, Jacob, Michael, William, Matthew and Megan. She also had six
great grandchildren Kole, Brina, Jocelyn, Chloe, Charlieann (Grace) and Sophia.
