Sharon Kurt - Funeral Assistant

Sharon Kurt

Born and raised in rural northeast Iowa, Sharon was a “transplant” to the Iowa City area in the late 80’s when she moved here for her work with the State of Iowa. She joined the Gay and Ciha family in 2012 in a part-time capacity, assisting with transportation, funeral services, grounds maintenance or wherever she could lend a helping hand. 

When not busy working, she enjoys being outdoors, quilting, tending to her flower garden, raising butterflies and her ‘birdies’ (canaries), and spending time with family and friends.

“One of my greatest joys working at Gay and Ciha, is being able to help bring or take a family’s loved one home, wherever that may be…to me, that is a great honor and I feel blessed to be able to do it”.
