Sharon L. (Moore) Clagg

October 4, 1957 ~ December 1, 2020 (age 63)


Sharon L. Clagg, 63, of Jerseyville, left this life on December 1st, 2020 at 9:50 am while in the ICU at Saint Anthony's Hospital in Alton, IL.

She was born on October 4, 1957 to Keith and Norma (Wagenblast) Moore in Jerseyville, IL. She was a daughter, a sister, an aunt and a friend. She was also the most incredible mom and grandma whom we will always remember.

Sharon spent her adult life caring for children in her career and in her own home.  She married John D. Clagg in 1977 and had five children together before later separating.  She obtained a Master’s degree in Child Education and put her lifelong passion of caring for children to work. 

She is survived by her mother, Norma L. (Wagenblast) Moore of Jerseyville, IL; children, Andy (Ryann) Clagg of Bethalto, IL, Jeff (Shannon) Clagg of Brighton, Erica (Rob) Kaminsky of Edwardsville, IL and Tim Clagg of Brighton, IL; siblings, Bonnie (Dick) Shelton of Shipman, IL, Lorene Moore, Susan (Tommy) Ruyle of Medora, IL, and Dan Moore of Jerseyville, IL; grandchildren Chase, Katelyn and Alyssa Clagg and Max and Theo Kaminsky. Sharon lived for her grandbabies!  She will be missed by all, but her grandchildren will miss her hugs and gifts each time she visited the most. 

Sharon was preceded in death by her daughter, Melissa Jane Clagg and her father, Keith Moore. 

Mom was an amazing parent. She was a great mentor and friend to all.  She was an amazing grandma and will be missed so much by everyone.  God needed another Angel, and she was called upon.  We are saddened she is not with us in person but know she is now closer to us than ever and will watch over us every day.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, a private, family graveside service has been scheduled at Maple Lawn Cemetery in Medora, IL.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to continue her work in memory of her with the Unified Child Advocacy Network of Carlinville, IL.  Another way you can support this organization is through AmazonSmile, who donates a portion of your normal purchases to support helping children in the region.  We also request everyone do their part by wearing a mask and following COVID precautions to reduce the strain on our friends in the medical profession, who cared for our Mom for her last 16 days.  Lastly, we ask that everyone thank those medical professionals who took care of her and continue to care for so many of our loved ones at this time.

Anderson Family Funeral Home has been entrusted with Sharon’s arrangements.
