She taught school for a short time, later becoming an editor for TV Listing Inc. But mostly Becky was a teacher of life. She embraced her Indian heritage, was brave, loyal and humble. Becky was selfless, accepting and always a calm in any storm. She was a fun-maker, risk-taker and a do-what-it-takes mom. 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.
