Juanita Mae (Sparks) Wright, 90, of Franklin, IN passed peacefully from this life into her heavenly home on Wednesday, March 20, 2019 at Morning Pointe of Franklin surrounded by her loving family. She was born on April 10, 1928, the oldest of three daughters to Ira R. and Hazel I. (Corlett) Sparks in Elwren, IN.

Noble Wright on February 5, 1950 in Spencer, IN. They have celebrated 69 devoted years of marriage together.

Juanita devoted her life to her most cherished titles; Christian, wife, mother, and mamaw. Her arms were always open, a smile was always on her face, and her home was always in order and open to all. She enjoyed cooking, gardening, and was active in church activities all of her adult life. Juanita has served the Lord at Victory Bapitst Church in Whiteland, IN for the last 26 years.
