Mary Beth graduated Woburn High School, Class of ‘82 and then earned a Bachelor of Arts degree at Middlebury College in 1986, before earning her Master's in Nursing at Massachusetts General Hospital Institute of Health Professions in 1992, later working in oncology at Nashua Regional Cancer Center until her most recent employment with Timberlane Regional School District as a school nurse at Sandown North Elementary.
Mary Beth will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her husband Rick Sharp, son, Caleb Sharp, and daughter, Emily Sharp.

Mary Beth loved her kids, and family was the center of her life. She enjoyed her flower garden, loved bluegrass music, and was an avid Red Sox fan. A lover of the outdoors, Mary Beth frequented Little Neck, went kayaking, camping, and was a very active person with a passion for life and all things spontaneous. Her smile, silliness, and quest for fun touched the lives of many.
