Sharon “SAM” Ann McAninch was born August 8, 1961 to Beverly (Zumach) Peck and George A. McAninch.   A lifelong resident of Norwalk, she grew up with four siblings.  As a child she enjoyed dancing and as she grew up she dedicated her life to hard work and caring for her mother.

Sharon graduated from Norwalk High School in 1979.  Sharon worked at Norwalk Schools, Farmland in Des Moines, and Pioneer in Johnston. She enjoyed traveling, and playing cards. She traveled all over the US, the Bahamas, and France. Her biggest joy in life came from being with her family; she lived for her nieces and nephews who she loved dearly.

On April 20, 2017 Sharon died after a courageous battle with cancer.  She was preceded in death by her step-father Earnest Peck, father George A. McAninch, her brother George W. McAninch, and half-brother Dale McAninch.

Sharon is survived by her mother Beverly Peck; brothers Mike (Becky) McAninch and Gary (Lisa) McAninch; a sister Cindy Myers; a half-brother Tony (Robin) McAninch; and several nieces and nephews.
