Mrs. Sparks had been a Christian for 53 years and was loved by all who knew her. She was a member of the Christian church and was well known. Mrs. Sparks will be sadly missed by relatives and friends.

She leaves to mourn her loss a husband and nine daughters, who are: Mrs. Josephine Stone of Logan, New Mex.; Mrs. Anna McGhie of Everett; Mrs. Lela Scammon of Prineville, Ore.; Mrs. Emma Wilson, Mrs. May Rich and Mrs. Loda Miller, all of Mossyrock; Mrs. Effie Grimes of Chehalis; Mrs. grace Ray of Centralia, and Mrs. Verda McCandless of Raymond.

Note: Sarah's obit indicates that she was born in 1843, however, the date on the plaque of her tombstone shows it as 1842. Adding to the mystery, the date of her birth is shown as May 13, 1848 on the large monument marking her grave.
