MOCKSVILLE—Mrs. Nannie Lou “Peggy” Potts Sparks, 85, of Cornatzer Road, passed away Thursday, September 2, 2021, at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem. She was born on October 6, 1935, in Davie County, to the late Harvey McKinley and Cora Lucille Bailey Potts. She worked at Hanes Hosiery for many years and was a retired school bus driver and cafeteria worker for the Davie County School System. Mrs. Sparks was a dedicated wife, mother, and grandmother. Her faith was strong, and she was always quick to share her beliefs. She was a caregiver throughout her life. At an early age, she cared for her siblings, and her father when her mother was sick. Peggy shared special summers with her grandchildren and niece, Dana, as they were growing up. She took care of her mother in her later years. Mrs. Sparks was a proud left-hander, loved to travel with her family and was a wonderful homemaker. She was known for her yummy chicken and dumplings, spaghetti, red velvet cake, cherry pie, and egg custard pie. Mrs. Sparks knew how to make others feel at ease and welcomed new friends with a smile. There is a hole in our heart for now, but we know we will see her again someday. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by a daughter, Debra Sparks Crotts; sisters, Dot Carter and Belinda Potts; and brothers, Billy Potts, Doug Potts, and Terry Potts. Survivors include her husband of 66 years, Bobby Gene Sparks, of the home; a brother, Luther Potts (Hilda), a son-in-law, Richard Crotts; grandchildren, Mark Crotts (Meggan Suggs), Beth Westmoreland (Jody), Brandi Akinade (Sam); an honorary grandchild, Wesley Potts (Heather); great-grandchildren, Mason Westmoreland, Logan Westmoreland, Ethan Akinade, Ruby Westmoreland, and Isabell Akinade; and many nieces and nephews.
