Andrea Nell Sharp, 37, beloved daughter, sister and friend, passed away Monday, December 5, 2022, after a long illness. She was born to Gene and Janice Sharp of Valley Center, KS, on April 27, 1985, and attended Valley Center schools, Newton Christian High School (Class of 2003), Butler Community College and Friends University. For 11 years, she worked as a librarian alongside her mom at the Valley Center Public Library, until sidelined by health issues that included back injuries and Addison’s disease. She also kept statistics for the Wichita Thunder off-ice crew for 10-plus years until last month, and was official photographer for the Wichita Industrial Trade Show. Andrea had a sassy, unapologetic personality, a bright smile and loud laugh. She enjoyed time with family, friends and pets; books; old movies; clothes and purses; and family vacations to Iowa. A solo trip to Scotland in 2019 was her favorite. She was preceded in death by Aunt Mary Kathryn Esau of Newton, and grandparents Mary and Fred Budde of Newton and George and Maurine Sharp of Wichita. She is survived by parents Gene and Janice Sharp; brother Glen Sharp; cousins Victor Esau, Diane Blaylock (Dennis), and Irvin Esau; dog Chester and ex-library cat Pages.
