Sharon did extensive work on behalf of Raoul Wallenberg, who is credited with saving 100,000 innocent lives during World War II at great personal risk, and disappeared in the Soviet Union.    Sharon held many peaceful demonstrations at the Soviet Mission in Glen Cove, New York, adjacent to her native Sea Cliff.  Sharon invited elected officials to attend, and they later initiated Legislative Resolutions in New York State and Washington D.C. seeking the release of Raoul Wallenberg’s prison records.  This was done in 1989, and the pending Resolutions were amended to seek an impartial investigation of Wallenberg’s disappearance.  The U.S. Senate Resolution introduced by Senator Moynihan at Sharon’s request passed the full United States Senate with the signatures of 100 U.S. Senators.  It was presented to the Soviet Diplomats at the United Nations.  The Soviet Union participated in resolving the Wallenberg disappearance.  Instrumental in helping Sharon accomplish this goal were the now deceased former Nassau County District Attorney Denis Dillon and the then New York State Assemblyman Thomas P. DiNapoli, now Comptroller of New York State, as well as former Congressman Robert Mrazek, the late Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan, former Senator Alphonse D’Amato, the late Senator Claiborne Pell, Nassau County Republican Chairman Joseph Mondello, and Congressional Aide Kenneth Schwitz. 


Sharon had volunteered at the United Nations for more than ten years representing Non Governmental Organizations in International Peace, Travel, and Health Care.  In addition she has done numerous volunteer activities in Church and in various other Peace and Justice organizations.  Sharon has two Daughters, and two Grandsons, and lives in Florida.
