Alberta Sparks Bowyer

February 2nd, 1923 - June 13th, 2024

Alberta Sparks Bowyer, age 101 passed away peacefully in her sleep Thursday morning, June 13, 2024 at VITAS Hospice in Rockledge, Fl. She was born February 2, 1923 in Glace, West Virginia to William and Mary Lou Ellen (Baldwin) Sparks. 


Alberta worked in manufacturing for most of her career. She was also a fabulous Avon sales person! She made friends easily and was loved by all who knew her. She enjoyed just sitting and visiting with family and friends. In her younger years she loved to make home-cooked meals for everyone who came to her home. She lived most of her life in West Virginia. Two years ago she moved to Florida to live with family. She was one of 14 children.


Her husband, George Winford Bowyer preceded her in death in 1976. 


She is survived by a daughter, Myrtle Ellen (Franklin) Gumm, a son, Rex Wayne Sparks, a brother, George Sparks, 6 grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren and 13 great-great grandchildren. She certainly left a wonderful legacy behind. 


Per her wishes, there will be no service.
