Although Melba Day Sparks only lived in Fallon for a short time, she touched the hearts of many Fallon citizens. Through her work teaching and directing theater she made a lasting impact as one of Fallon’s Shooting Stars. Her notable Cinderella theater production was not only well done, but was a bright light during the chaos of World War 2. In this photo, Melba is with her newly wedded husband Victor Sparks on their Wedding Day. 1939 (Bill Frenchu Photo Collection).
