Sharon Amos

Sharon Amos worked for the People’s Temple and was a member of Jones’ innermost circle. She lived in Guyana’s capital of Georgetown with her three children Christa, Liane, and Martin.

On November 18th, 1978 when the order was sent from Jonestown to the People’s Temple headquarters in Georgetown to commit suicide, Sharon was the only member not living in Jonestown to do so. She took her 3 children to the bathroom and killed them, and then herself.
