Franklin devoted her life to her family. She was the homemade cookie kind of mom, who could also be known to make matching outfits for the entire family. She loved to garden and could grow just about anything. She would get everyone out picking blackberries to make the most delicious jellies and pies. She spent summers packing picnic lunches to take to the lake, or packing up the old station wagon for a trip to Colorado, with interesting stops along the way. She was active with the Campfire Girls organization and was a group leader to a lot of girls over the years.
Frankie will be missed by all who knew her.
Please join us in celebrating her life, Saturday, December 16 at 12:30 PM at Saint Thomas Catholic Church, 4415 South 140th Street, Tukwila WA 98168. Reception at the church following services.
