I am writing to let anyone who was in contact with my mother Sharon Lorraine Absher Leeland, that she passed away from cancer on 12/10/2002. I am still going through her things and I found pages of lineage on the Absher family and print outs from this website.
Sharon was born in Washington DC the daughter of Ernest Absher and Ester Grace Lien Absher. Sharon was married to John Richard Leeland on December 22, 1960 in Wheaton, MD. My parents had 2 children--myself: Shanna Lorraine Leeland and my brother Richard William Leeland.
