Sparkie was a 1947 graduate of Mooresville High School and a long time member of the Shelbyville Road Church of Christ. Martha was nicknamed "Sparkie" because of her "redhead" temper. She was known for her style of dress, that being, more is more! Sparkie loved to travel when she was able and always shared such fond memories of trips taken with her daughter, Sandy, granddaughters, niece Cathy and great nephew, Jeremy. Sparkie loved to shop garage sales and spending time with friends and family. Her favorite treat was a twinkie wrapped in bologna! She will be deeply missed by her loving family and friends.
