Virginia Marie Sparks

10/22/1963 - 04/01/2023

Virginia Marie Sparks, affectionately known as Jenny, passed away in the early morning hours of Saturday April 1st, 2023 in Bellaire, OH. She was 59 years old.  A well-loved lifelong native of Brown County Ohio, Jenny was born on October 22nd, 1963 to the late Edna (Rhame) and Roy Sparks in Georgetown Ohio. She was the youngest of eight children, developing strong bonds with her nieces and nephews.  A farm girl at heart, she was highly skilled with knitting needles and crochet hooks.

Jenny was influenced by her family to be a loving and caring woman, always giving her time to others and she incorporated that into her motherhood.  As a mother, she was dedicated, generous, loving and kind. She spoiled her children as much as she possibly could.  Jenny kept this approach with her grandchildren and took great pride in them.

Jenny is survived by her 3 children, Ronald (Katy) Gast, Samantha Gast, Candice (James) Phipps; siblings, Eddie Sparks, Roy Sparks, Bobbie Tarter; 5 grandchildren, Kenneth, Clay, Jessica, Bradley Jr., Psiren; and several nieces and nephews.

Her Journey’s Just Begun

Don’t think of her as gone away, her journey’s just begun
Life holds so many facets, this earth is only one.
Just think of her as resting from the sorrows and the tears
In a place of warmth and comfort where there are no days or years.
Think how she must be wishing that we could know today.
How nothing but our sadness, can really pass away.
And think of her as living in the hearts of those she touched.
For nothing loved is ever lost and she was loved so much.
