No matter the challenge or change, she jumped in to make a stronger plan for everyone. I worked with Shari while she was at ION Bank struggling with the system conversion. She kept an open mind and lead the way for many to have success both short term and long term.
May we find your smiling face and generous heart some day!

Shari was an amazing asset to Naugatuck High School. She helped with our bank branch and served on the Advisory Council. She was dedicated to helping young people. Her loss is such a loss to the community. What a lovely lady. Condolences to the family.
