She was preceded in death by her parents; daughter, Jennifer Sparkman; brother, Buddy Box; sister, Bette Lang; and aunt, Zelma Faye Allen.
Survivors include her children, David Lee Sparkman Jr., Rebecca LeAnn Sparkman, Joseph Wesley Sparkman, Sandra Elizabeth Jackson; 10 grandchildren; brother, Bill Box; sister and best friend, Chris Dawson; very good friend, Charlene Sheasley Tyler; one niece; two nephews; and many friends.
