Verna Joyce Sparks, age 63, of New Albany, MS died unexpectedly Wednesday, April 7, 2021, at her home. She was born July 31, 1957 in Nicholasville, KY to Rosie Lee Huddleston, and the late Homer Hurt. Verna worked a number of jobs early in her life, including as a house keeper at a hotel, waiting tables at Jerry‘s Restaurant, and at the Blue Grass Army Depot. But later she found joy in serving her family as a homemaker. She loved her flowers, coloring in adult coloring books, and collecting “what nots” of all types like her stuffed animals.
The family has chosen to have a memorial service at a later date.
Verna is survived by her husband of 35 years, Everett Sparks; her mother, Rosie Lee Huddleston; three sons, Jeffery Hurt, Shannon Hurt, Jon Sparks (Jessica); nine grandchildren; and six brothers and sisters.
Along with her father, Verna was preceded in death by one sister, Debbie Johnson; and one grandson, Cody Ray Sparks.
