Sharon Rivers

Since graduating in 1961, I was married in 1964 and divorced in 1985. Best thing about the marriage, one beautiful, wonderful daughter and two granddaughters.

From a bad divorce, alcohol took over for 11 years and almost killed me. Proud to say that I am now divorced for 26 years and sober for 15 years. Now, very healthy, happy and independent!

I have worked for Franz Tractor for 11 years, in Oneco, FL, where I live, as Secretary and Bookkeeper. I live in a 55+ Mobile Home Park, where I am Social Director, Dance Chairwoman and 50/50 Chairwoman.

I belong to DAV, Eagles and American Legion where I take an active part. Also enjoy walking 3 1/2 miles per day, exercise 3 times a week and go dancing 4 nights per week.

I thank the good Lord every day for my sobriety and good health, and live every day "one day at a time".
