Earline was born in Walnut Ridge Arkansas on February 17, 1936 to William and Elvis Sparks and the youngest of 5 siblings but only knew her older brother William known to everyone as Dub. She did not know her father because he passed away when she was 3 months old and Three of her siblings that were born before she and her brother were born didn’t survive. She met and then married Gene Brassfield on January 17, 1955 and welcomed a baby girl, Gail Evelyn, on December 13, 1955. Earline moved to Kansas after graduating from High School and although we don’t know of all of the jobs she had in her earlier years she worked Downtown Kansas City MO for Firestone, Later she was a Realtor for a short time and most of her later years she worked for Dillards. She loved to sew, work In the yard (especially planting and caring for flowers), and doing puzzles. Besides the Love she had for Her Lord and Family she loved butterflies and flowers (especially pink roses).
Earline was loved by her family and was a very kind and loving Mom and Grandma and she loved her family very much. She prayed for them every day and always asked how everyone was doing.
The family would like to thank all of the Nurses, Aids, and Staff at Villa St. Francis and Three Oaks Hospice (Formerly Hospice Partners) for the wonderful care they gave to her for over three years.
