DELORIS JUNE SPARLING

Deloris June Sparling passed away peacefully on October 14, 2017. She was born on November 25, 1925, in Sterling, Colorado to Hollis Wilson and Margaret Hinrichs.

Deloris graduated from Weatherwax High School in Hoquiam in 1942. She later resided on Mercer Island, and in the Seattle and Redmond areas.

Deloris loved dancing, visiting with friends and family, and playing the penny slots at the casinos. She was fiercely independent until the day she died.

Deloris is survived by her three children Gwen Moore, Jean Blackstone and Gary Sparling; and also by her four grandchildren Anna-Marie Meade, Natalie Hopkins, Megan Blackstone and Chelsea Blackstone.

The family would like to thank the incredible staffs of Sunrise Senior Living of Mercer Island and Skyline Terraces in Seattle for their loving care of our mother.
