A memorial service for Jerry Harmon Sparks, 77, will be Tuesday, December 27, 2016, at Lakeview Baptist Church in Oxford with visitation beginning at 11 a.m. followed by a service at 1 p.m. The Reverend Jerry Starling will officiate. Burial will follow in the Oxford Memorial Gardens. Mrs. Sparks passed away on Friday, December 23, 2016, after battling lung cancer since 2014. Born and raised in Oxford, Mrs. Sparks returned to Oxford upon the passing of her husband, R. Wayne Sparks, also of Oxford. She retired from Cheaha Bank on November 30, 2016, celebrating a sixteen year career with the bank. Prior to joining Cheaha, Mrs. Sparks enjoyed an extended career in the banking community including the role of Assistant Vice President at Eastover Bank in Meridian, Mississippi. Oxford has always had a special place in her heart. A graduate of Oxford High School, she has enjoyed a lifetime of friendships with the Class of 1957. Lakeview Baptist Church, where she served loyally for many decades, was truly a place where her Oxford roots became stronger. Her friendships across the church were extensions of her family. Jerry is preceded in death by her husband, R. Wayne Sparks; parents, Adrian H. and M. Maurine Harmon; grandson, Richard Harmon Nash. Jerry is survived by her daughter, Ms. Paige Nash (Hugh Anthony, Oneonta); son, Darren Sparks (Orlando, Fla.); brother, Mike Harmon, (Susie, Rome, Ga.); dearest cousins, Jacky and Cheryl Sparks (Saks); granddaughter, Emily Rebecca Nash, and grandson, Hugh Anthony Nash III. The family will accept flowers or donations may be made to The Building Fund at Lakeview Baptist Church. The family wishes to extend their sincere gratitude to the Alacare Hospice team for their support, care and comfort in her final weeks. Miller Funeral Home & Crematory (256) 831-4611
