My prayers and condolences go out to Sharon Fenlon and her family. Also in my heart and prayers are the school board members, students, parents, and staff of the Appleton school district family. For you and for the whole community, the Wisconsin Association of School Boards and its board of directors, share your sadness at the tragic loss of Sharon Fenlon, one of Wisconsin's exemplary school board leaders. On a more personal note, I was deeply saddened at Sharon's passing. She always went out of her way to welcome me when she was at our events. Her love for her family and Wisconsin's students was her life's passion.

Jack, I am very sorry for your loss. Please know that prayers are being offered up for you. I knew Sharon as a free spirit, yet with a strong foundation of integrity and honesty. It was this foundation, her core beliefs, that I knew I could rely on when seeking Sharon's opinion on any Board of Ed issue that needed attention. She will be missed by many.

Sharon was such a strong supporter of public education. She was someone whom I respected since I came to Appleton. She will be missed but her legacy of what she did for so many in the AASD will go on forever.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Mrs. Fenlon was an inspiration in her dedication to students. She regularly attended our school's open house event and made a contact with the student who sent her the invitation. We missed her this year, and will miss her every year. She was kind, giving, patient, and a good listener. Go in peace.

Sharon touched the lives of so many in our community...especially the thousands of children who attended the public schools. We all are indebted to the time and talent she gave to our public schools for the benefit of all. Sharon was a keystone of the AASD Board of Education for years, and her accomplishments will continue to benefit all for decades to come. I was privileged to work with Sharon on a variety of issues over the years and cherish those memories.
