Sharon S. Wynn
1939 - 2020

Burlington Junction, Missouri - Sharon Sue Wynn, 80, of Burlington Junction, Missouri passed away on Monday, February 3, 2020 after a brief stay at Parkdale Manor in Maryville, Missouri.

Sharon was born on May 28, 1939 in Rock Port, MO to Orval O. (Johnston) Wagner and Gladys M. (Langfelt) Wagner. Her father was killed in action in World War II. Her mother married Bob Maxwell, and the family moved to Torrington, Wyoming where Sharon graduated from High School. She got a scholarship and graduated from beauty school. She returned to Missouri, attended Northwest Missouri State University, then opened a beauty salon in Fairfax, MO. She married Ben Wynn. They farmed and operated Wynn Bros. Trucking, in Burlington Jct., MO. She opened Gala Beauty Salon and Wynn-D-Hill Beauty Salon in Burlington Jct. Sharon retired from her beautician career and became a commodities stockbroker working for Ed Cole Commodities in Maryville, MO. In 1989, she moved to Alaska and became a cook at a bar/restaurant in Wasilla. There she developed a love of cooking and retuned to Nodaway County. In 2001 she opened Third Street Diner in Maryville, MO. In 2006, she opened Kiss My Grits Kafe’ in Burlington Jct. She was the owner and operator of that popular diner and got to share the results of her love of cooking with her community until she was 79 years old, when she fell ill with cancer.

Sharon’s greatest joys in life were raising her three children, her grandchildren, giving back to her community, having and being a good friend, dancing, cooking, and taking care of the many, many animals she adopted throughout her life. While her children were growing up, she was a member of the Community Betterment organization in Burlington Jct. and was instrumental in upgrading and expanding the baseball and tennis park there, as well as getting a housing development built for senior citizens where she served on the board. She was a member of the American Legion Ladies Auxiliary in Burlington Jct.

She was preceded in death by her father and mother, step-fathers Bob Maxwell, Ray Robertson and infant brother, Gary. Survivors include her husband Ben Wynn; three children, J.

Walker) Wynn, and Jamey Wynn; eight grandchildren, Nickolas (Shaye) Wynn, Heather (Devan) Baur, Sarah Beth Wynn, Sharese Yount, Shaylee Yount, Emalee Wynn, Jaylee Wynn, and Ryder Wynn; and five great-grandchildren.

Oh my gosh Sharon thought me a lot ! I started working for her at the 3rd street diner in 2002 and we hit it off from the get go, we were similar in a lot of ways. Some would swear she was my mom cus we acted so much alike at times , i guess that’s when I started calling her mom and it just stuck. I lost touch with her on an everyday basis after her move to bj but I never forgot her. I recently was able to get in touch with her again and she remained strong and hardheaded as she always was even tho she was so weak. I can’t tell you how much she influenced my life and I will forever miss her!! RIP mom!!! My thoughts are with Benny, Jamie, Jody , Ben and family
