Shari grew up in Abilene, then graduated from Texas Tech. She has served in Baylor University Development Department since 1988 where she has made many significant contributions. As Assistant to the Vice President of Development, she was a model for all when it came to diligence, professionalism and unflagging commitment to her co-workers, as well as to the important mission of providing resources to support all aspects of the university.

In 1997 Shari received Baylor University’s Outstanding Staff Award and in 2005 the Tom Z. Parrish Outstanding Development Professional award. Her heart was in helping Baylor students to achieve their full potential. She was a member of the First Baptist Church of Woodway.

Shari is survived by her husband, Charles of Hewitt; daughter, Ashley Wolda and boyfriend, Jeremy Sanders of Dallas; son, Joe Wolda of Hewitt; sister, Bobbie Hughes and husband, Al of Odessa; great niece, Emily Fowler; great-great niece, Bella McCarroll, all of Dallas; nephews, Ty Fowler of Dallas and Tab Fowler of Austin; and many cousins and friends.

Shari will always be loved and remembered as a truly special wife, mother, sister and friend.
The family has asked that, in lieu of flowers, gifts be made to the Baylor University General Scholarship Fund in Memory of Shari Wolda, One Bear Place Box 97026; Waco, TX 76798-7026.
