Sharon was born on May 11, 1941 on the family farm in Shellsburg, Iowa to Wilmer Emerson and Arlene Nelson. She married A.J. ( Tailey ) Mellos in 1957 at the Greek Orthodox Church in McGill, Nevada after attending White Pine High School . Tailey and Sharon had three sons, Gregory, William, Demetri and one daughter, Chrisoula.

The odds of Sharon being able toshare a piece of your family history with you moments after learning your last name were very high. She had a love of Greek food and to her family’s delight she was always ready and willing to whip up a meal for anyone experiencing a hunger pain. Her grandkids will always remember her delicious cookies.
