Sharon Kay (Johnson) Hauptman was born to Marion and Anna (Haberlein) Johnson on August 30, 1942, in Kearney, Nebraska. She had 2 older sisters, Lucille and Phyllis, and an older brother, Robert “Bob”. Sharon was the first in her family to be born in a hospital. The family later moved to Omaha, Nebraska in 1945. Her father passed away when she was 16.
Sharon needed to help financially so she worked at Joslyn Castle as a secretary while going to high school. She graduated from Omaha South High School in 1960 where she met Thomas “Tom” J. Hauptman. They were married on October 9, 1961. Tom enlisted in the Navy, and she stayed in Omaha. They were moved to Alameda, California to be at the base. Her first daughter, Julie, was born August 23, 1962. Her second daughter, Lisa, joined the family on March 4, 1967. After Tom left the Navy on July 19, 1968, the family moved to Hayward, California.
Sharon stayed home with the girls while Tom was in college and worked at Walgreens. They later moved back to Omaha in 1973 to be closer to family. She took a position with Nox-Crete Chemicals, then went to work at US National Bank (later called Norwest Bank then bought out by Wells Fargo) and retired from there in 2002. She took a part time job with Methodist Pathology Department until she fully retired in 2010 to take care of Tom.
Sharon belonged to Castelar Presbyterian Church in Omaha. She was baptized into Christ in 2008 and became a member of Church of Christ in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Sharon was on a bowling team for many years and won many trophies, played softball on a co-ed team (1st baseman) and square danced. She loved her family and attended grandkid’s events any chance she could.
