Grace Marie Bailey Sparks of Campbellsville, daughter of the late Jerry Bailey and Loracy Wolford Bailey, was born May 26, 1925 in Adair County, Kentucky. She died at 10:58 P.M., Thursday, March 12, 2020 in Campbellsville.
She professed faith in Christ and was a member of Campbellsville Christian Church.
Grace grew up in Roley, Kentucky and loved that community. A favorite outing was driving to the community and taking many trips down memory lane.
Upon graduation from Knifley High school, she went to Louisville Beauty School and then returned to Adair County, where she was pursued by and then married her loving husband, Harlan. Job transfers took them alternately to Taylor County and Adair County where they enjoyed a life of friends, church and family over many decades. In later years, Wal-Mart became the destination of choice followed by a meal at whatever fast food location she had a coupon for and hadn't been to in the last few days. Keeping in touch with friends by phone provided hours of news and updates in an ever changing world. She was always hoping and anticipating one more family reunion.
She united in marriage to Harlan "Buster" Sparks November 24, 1949 and he preceded her in death June 6, 2012.
She is survived by one daughter and one son: Carol Tucker and husband, Ivan of Campbellsville and David Sparks and wife, Johnnie of Lexington; four grandchildren: Kenny Squires and wife, Sabina of Benton, Louisiana, Richard Squires of Natchez, Mississippi, Alison Sparks of London and Jake Squires of West Liberty; one step granddaughter, Ashley Green and husband, David of Nashville, Tennessee; one great-granddaughter, Nieve Squires and her baby brother on the way; step great-grandchildren: Claire Green and Tucker Green; one brother and one sister: Hollis Wade Bailey of Liberty and June Ludford of Virginia Beach, Virginia; she is also survived by several nieces and nephews and many other relatives and friends.
The family request expressions of sympathy be donations to Kosair Charties and those may be made at Parrott & Ramsey Funeral Home.
