Frieda Sparks Obituary
Frieda Sparks, age 82, of Palestine, passed away Friday, March 9, 2018. She was born on Sunday, Sept. 1, 1935, to Richard Conner and Maggie Watkins Conner.
Mrs. Sparks is survived by her husband, Millard Sparks, of the home; two sons, Timmy Sparks (Charlette), of Wheatley and Michael Sparks (Melissa), of Searcy; one daughter, Sabrina Raggett (Nathan), of Bartlett, Tenn.; two stepdaughters, Betty Jumper of Palestine, and Charlette Caldwell, of Moro; 11 grandchildren, 13 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild; and one brother, Carl Conner (Patsy), of Booneville.
She was preceded in death by her parents; one brother, Jerry Conner and one sister, Patsy Goacher.
Mrs. Frieda was passionate about her faith, family, friends, work and yard. Each note, call and visit painted a smile on her face as well as on her soul. She would say, "I never knew I had so many friends." The pride she took in the yard was matched only by her dedication to the never-ending ideas and vision she constantly developed. Nothing interrupted her pursuit of preventing anyone enduring a loss or hardship from going without good meals and tireless support. She took great joy in delivering each meal and never expected anything in return.
Mrs. Frieda always prioritized her faith in the Lord and shared that faith with everyone she met.
Visitation was held Monday, March 12, 2018, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Roller-Citizens Funeral Home in Marianna. Services for Mrs. Sparks were held Tuesday, March 13, 2018, at 2 p.m., at Salem Methodist Church in Moro, with Brother Mike Bolin officiating.
