Barbara Sparks, 75, of Peru, mother, sister, mamaw, aunt, daughter-in-law, sister-in-law, and friend, went to be with her Lord and Savior on Monday, January 25, 2021.
She leaves behind two precious children, son Brad (Tonya) Sparks, and daughter Tammie (Alan) Sparks Lambert, and two cherished grandsons, Seth and Zachary Sparks; her sister Cyndy (John) Crowe; nephews John “J.R.” (Tricia) Crowe, Peru; Darren (Karen) Crowe, Arizona; and niece Stacy Crowe (Barney Brehmer), Peru.
Very special to her were her great nephews, Trevon and Landen Crowe, Peru; Ryler Crowe of Arizona, and great nieces Courtlynn Crowe, Peru and Savaiah Crowe of Arizona.
Preceding her in death was her husband Roby Sparks, her father Charles Moore, and mother Halina Moore.
Barb was a high school graduate of Peru. Her love of sports began with her two children, Brad and Tammie, from softball, volleyball, baseball, football, basketball, and soccer. She was also a loyal Nascar fan. Being a devoted fan throughout the family as games and activities increased over the years, she would attend whenever and wherever she could to give her full support.
Barb loved the holidays – especially Christmas. She enjoyed the lights and Christmas trees all decorated with many colors. Her love of snow made it even more enjoyable.
Her love for her family was beyond measure. Sacrifices she made to create memories was her life’s goal. Living “one day at a time” was her favorite song. She lived by this every day of her life. To be happy or to find something that makes you happy was a statement she most often said. She will be greatly missed.
Visitation will be held from 12pm to 2pm on Sunday, January 31, 2021 at Flowers-Leedy Funeral Home, 105 West Third Street, Peru, Indiana. Funeral service will follow at 2pm, with Pastor Phil Cruea officiating. Burial will take place at Mount Hope Cemetery in Peru.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the family through the funeral to assist with funeral expense.
