Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • I remember how kind and caring Mrs. Sparham was to my brother and I as children buying candy at Doug's pantry. Always so kind and caring, as was Doug! - Posted by: David Melcosky (Msrion) on: Dec 12, 2022

  • I am so very sorry to hear of Mrs Sparham’s passing. I was a close friend of Janet throughout my teenage years. Her parents were both, kind, welcoming, and fun to be around. I have fond memories of being wakened in the morning (having a sleepover at their cabin) to Mrs Sparham singing “good morning Mary Sunshine”. She was the only person to call me “Betsy”. I enjoyed many hours in their home in back of their store, “Doug’s Pantry”. She was a wonderful lady, who along with Doug, built a home full of love and laughter. - Posted by: Betty Macaig (Friend) on: Dec 11, 2022

  • I used to work with your Mom at K-Mart she was a very nice lady. ❤️ - Posted by: Fran Bridges (Friend ) on: Dec 10, 2022
