Sharon Rountree Obituary

If I should go tomorrow - It would never be goodbye, For I have left my heart with you, so don't you ever cry. The love that's deep within me, shall reach you from the stars, you’ll feel it from heaven, and it will heal the scars.

Christopher Young Funeral Home respectfully announces the earthly transition of Sharon "Punkin" Rountree.

Life Story
Sharon Renee Rountree, 52
Affectionately known as “Punkin” departed this life on August 25, 2023, at her residence. Although Sharon bravely battled a lengthy illness, her transition was unexpected.
Sharon was born on October 15, 1970, to Robert Lee Rountree and Mary Florence Rountree. She was born in Augusta, and raised in Millen, GA where she attended the Jenkins County Public School System. At the age of 16, Sharon along with her baby sister and mother moved to Augusta, GA. During her last two years of school, she attended Maryvale High School in Phoenix, AZ for the 11th grade and then graduated from Laney Walker High School in Augusta, GA in 1988. Very shortly after graduation, Sharon pursued further education to become a physical therapist. Unfortunately, due to health issues, she was unable to continue her job. She was a former member of Greater Young Zion Baptist Church in Augusta under the leadership of Pastor William Blount. Sharon recently enjoyed traveling to Jamaica, cooking (especially seasoning different types of meat),
keeping up with friends and family through social media, listening to music and dancing, joking and laughing; and always the life of a party, Of course LOL!
Sharon was gifted with a sense of humor. There is a old saying, but a true statement. Laughter is the best medicine. Proverbs 17:22 confirms it—a merry
heart really does a spirit, soul and body good like medicine. By the time “Punkin” gets done with you, like a dose of castor oil, she will make you feel clean inside. LOL!
