RE: Bobbie Sparks

I did post a new photo for Bonnie & Robert & Shirley Payne. There was no marker for Shirley, she is buried with Robert.


Bonnie "Granny" SPARKS - Plainwell, Bonnie was born August 11, 1911 in Indiana, and had been a resident of Plainwell for 5 years, previously living at Dillon Hall for 14 years, and most of her life in the Kalamazoo area. Bonnie had retired from M & H Grocery Store. A salt of the earth lady with a great sense of humor, she was well liked and loved her children and grandchildren. Her family includes her daughter-in-law, Margaret SPARKS; her sister-in-law, Blanche JUDY; 5 grandchildren, Jody (Moore) MORFORD, Sherry (SPARKS) HISCOCK, Peggy HARPER, Robert "Bob" SPARKS, and Bonnie LaVon SPARKS; 10 great-grandchildren; 3 great-great-grandchildren. Bonnie died Wednesday October 30, 1996 in Plainwell, and was preceded in death by her husband, Robert in 1969; by a daughter, Shirley Ann PAYNE in 1990; and by a son, Dewey SPARKS in 1991; by 3 brothers, Thomas, Robert and Richard JUDY. Friends may call at the Rupert, Durham, Marshall and Gren, Plainwell Chapel Friday 7-9 PM, where a Celebrated of Life service will be held Saturday 11 AM Rev. Dan Minor officiating. Interment will take place in Riverside Cemetery.

RE: Bobbie Sparks
The one for Robert is a different photo. If that photo is to small & to blurry i'll try to get another one if I feel good enough tomorrow. I'm fighting congestive heart failure but still manage to get to Riverside when I can. Might even try to get it this evening if it cools off, I can't take the hot humid stuff anymore. Guess that comes with old age.

Thank you, Dora Jorgensen

Burdin Photo Requests
While imaging your requests for the Burdins, I also photographed Lyle I Burdin's headstone as he was buried directly beside them, Find A Grave #59622543. I don't know how he fits in, but I am sure he is family, possibly a son, given the dates on his stone.

Lelah May Anderson Ross Murphy
I added Anderson as her maiden name, I also added AKA Lelah May Ross. I didn't change her married name because no one could find her under Murphy if both Ross & Murphy were put in as her married name.

It would really help if you could provide the grave block and plot location. The cemetery is HUGE and there are over 145 photo requests. It has gotten so frustrating for the volunteers to get the grave locations that most of us have quit trying. Family members can contact the cemetery office and usually get the information more easily. If you get the location, you can add it to the memorial or message it to me on Find A Grave
