Sharon Ann (Casey) Riley, 74, formerly of Odessa, TX, went to be with the Lord on July 21, 2023. She was born in Pampa, TX, on August 11, 1948, to Richard and Claire (Andrews) Casey. As a child she lived in Thrall, KS, and later moved with her family to Odessa, TX, where she graduated from Permian High School in 1966. In 1966 she married Ed Brumback, and together they were proud to raise their family in the town she loved and where she worked in Oil and Gas Production accounting. An avid MOJO football fan, Sharon was a season ticket holder for much of her adult life and was eager to share in the excitement surrounding the team and community each week.
She married James Riley of Kermit, TX, on June 4, 1992, and they shared many years of love, laughter, and adventure together. They lived and worked in Odessa until retiring in 2020, and moved to Mustang, OK. Nothing was more important to Sharon than being a grandmother. She adored each and every one of her grandchildren and treasured every minute she spent with them. She enjoyed baking, traveling, playing games, MOJO and Texas Tech Football, and making new friends. She and James recently celebrated her 70th birthday in Jamaica. She especially cherished big family gatherings and funny stories shared by those she loved.
