    Sharon "Derail" Fahey, a former Queen of Hobos several years ago, passed away Dec. 31, 2002 in Cameron, MO. She was returning to her home from a holiday visit to her sister in Iowa, when she was taken ill. Derail sought the help of stangers, who helped her get to a hospital and stayed with her, but she died of congestive heart failure at 10:30 a.m.

    Being elected Queen of Hobos at the annual National Hobo Convention in Britt, Iowa, was a source of great pride for Derail. She was a tireless ambassador for the hobo community, and was well known among tramps as a honest, hard-working, generous and dependable sister of the road.
    She will be sorely missed. All those who knew Derail are encouraged to contact the people of Cameron, MO and express their gratitude for their assistance and attempts to help her. Even far from friends and family, she received the the compassion of strangers, who cared enough to help Derail on New Year's Eve.
