Sad News ~ RIP Sharon Bragg ~ Lima, Ohio-area Fenton Glass dealer

I have some sad news. My friend and long-time Lima, Ohio-area Fenton Glass dealer, Sharon Bragg has passed away. She was a lovely person, always upbeat and positive, and passionate about her beloved Fenton glass. I will miss my chats with her, when she would be re-stocking her beautiful mall booth display. And I won't see another piece of Fenton glass without thinking of her. My thoughts are with her loved ones at this sad time.

Her husband, Chuck, has written a lovely note:


As each of you peruse your china cabinets

or shelves, I am sure that you will see a piece of glass

that will remind you of Sharon ...... remember her with a smile,

as that is how those who knew her well will remember her -

and know that she thought the world of each of you

and was glad that you had touched her life in whatever way you did.

Some of you have requested the name of a charity

where you could send a rememberance for Sharon....

If she could, she would tell you that she would like it to go to her church.

On behalf of myself and our son Charley,

we would like to thank you all for your prayers and good thoughts.
