The National Gourd Lady

(Also the North Carolina Gourd Lady)

Margaret "Sparky" Sparkman

We all grieve the loss of this wonderful person on March 6, 2012. She was a kind, caring, and helpful soul and she will be truly missed. Personal memories include hearing her tell of her love of her husband Clyde, her many stories about her gourds, her prowess at a game of bridge, her back porch tomato plant, and her killer microwave pecans. It was an honor to know and love Sparky.
