Ethel was born to William and Mildred (Davenport) Sparkman May 14, 1944 in China Spring, TX. Ethel was a caring soul and a country gal who was always willing to help. She was known by many as the block mama, as she never turned away any neighborhood children who needed anything. She was very witty; she taught her children math and grammar through games such as Dominoes or Scrabble. Dancing, reading and gardening were some of the many things she enjoyed. Ethel was known for her arts and crafts. She was talented in woodworking as well as painting. Many people have been blessed by her art work and even while battling her illness, she took some of her hand-crafted ornaments to the hospital to give out to patients. Ethel was one of a kind and will be missed by all who have had the pleasure of knowing her.

Those left to cherish her memory are her children, Raymond Farrar and wife Debbie, Michael Farrar and wife Dana, Cathy Farrar and Johnny Hogan and wife Ann; and grandchildren, Fashia Farrar, Xavier Farrar, Chris Farrar, Erin Farrar, Heather Farrar and Cody Forbes. She is also survived by great-grandchildren, Leo McIntosh, Kaebyrn McIntosh, Emmalynn Forbes, Kristian Farrar, Kadance Farrar, Goku Farrar, Logan Farrar, Audrey Farrar, Raleigh Farrar, Ian Farrar, Brenan Baker  and Jaylan Earle; siblings, James Sparkman and Anna K. Wetlesen and a host of nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends.
