After graduating, she eventually met and married Donald L. Fink of Lovell. They met in Thermopolis while he was working in construction building the Hot Springs Co. Library. Don and Sharon married August 27, 1966, at the Community Church in Thermopolis. 

After marriage Sharon and Don moved to Livingston, Montana, where she attended cosmetology school. They eventually moved back to Thermopolis, where Sharon was a cosmetologist for approximately 30 years. 

Sharon also worked for the Absaroka Head Start program for several years, and she received her Associates in early childhood development at this time. She was a member of the Lutheran Church in Thermopolis. She enjoyed bowling and was a member of a league.
