Obituary for Barbara Hays

Barbara Sparks Hays was born November 15, 1932 in Jackson County, Kentucky, and departed this life Tuesday, April 10, 2018 at her residence, being 85 years of age.
Barbara was preceded in death by her parents, John Sparks and Rosa (Wilson) Sparks; her brother, Virgil R. Sparks; and by the love of her life and husband of 69 years, Fred C. Hays.
She is survived by her three sons: Larry and his wife JoNell of Tyner; Dennis and his wife Brenda of Gray Hawk, and Tracy and his wife Connie of Berea; by six grandchildren: Jennifer, Shannon, Shaun, Stephania, Jordan, and Ashley; by five great-grandchildren, Nicholas, Delanie, Isabella, Jacob and Madison; and by her sister, Alpha Sparks Allen of Camp Dennison, Ohio.
Barbara was a devoted daughter, wife, mother, and grandmother. She dedicated her life to caring for family in sickness and in health. She was the primary caregiver for her husband in his illness and for many years cared for her mother, Rosa, in her home until her death at the age of 102. Her special gift was the wonderful meals she prepared for family gatherings to celebrate holidays, special occasions, and reunions. Her laughter and vibrant personality will be greatly missed.
