Obituary of Mary Jane Sergent Franklin
Mt Eagle Newspaper, Whitesburg, Letcher Co KY
Thursday Evening, July 13, 1944

Mrs. Elzie Franklin: Early Sunday morning, as the sun was peering over the mountain tops and while all was still down the valley, God called for sister Mary Franklin, and she so quietly and peacefully answered him. Sister Franklin was the daughter of the Elizabeth Jenkins Sergent and Wilson Sergent. She was born August 18th, 1884 and spent her entire life in the vicinity where she was born. Early in life she was married to Elzy Franklin and to this union were born nine children, Ada Bates of Thornton, Orvil Franklin of Louisville, Archie of Alexander, Va., Emma of Newport News, Va., Alma of Lynch, Ky., Arlie Blake of Whitesburg, Ky., Clayton somewhere in North Africa serving in the U. S. Army and Deward of Sandlick.

Many years ago she gave her heart to God and became a member of the church and was a most faithful one until her death. Everyone who knew her loved her, she was so kind and gentle. We will miss her in our church. She was always there. Today her many friends feel that she is not dead, but only sleeping. May the memory of her forever live with her forever live with her relatives and friends. Let us all put our trust in the good Lord and He will help to make our burdens light.

Dearest sister thou has left us
Here thy loss we deeply feel,
But 'tis God that has befeft us
He can all our sorrows heal.

Funeral Services were held at the Sandlick Regular Baptist Church on Tuesday, July 11th, at 10:00 A. M. with Rev. T. R. Collier, Rev. Basil Hall and Rev. Archie Craft, officiating. Burial in the Caudill Cemetery, Sandlick, Ky., The Craft Funeral Home in charge of Funeral and burial arrangements.
