Gladys Johnson Franklin

  • Birth 22 Feb 1922 Elba, Coffee County, Alabama, USA
  • Death 27 Nov 2008 Montgomery, Montgomery County, Alabama, USA
  • Burial Montgomery, Montgomery County, Alabama, USA
  • Memorial ID 25998127

Daughter of Tommy J and Coy Leona Williams Johnson. Wife of Sam Johnson Franklin. Mother of Jimmy, Paul, Sonny, Steve, Mary and Edward. Grandmother of 21 known grandchildren and great grandmother of 35 known great grandchildren.

She grew up in Elba, Coffee Co, Alabama with her sister Amma Jean & brothers Billy and James. She and my granddaddy were married in May 1941.

My granny was very soft spoken and mild tempered. She loved to cook and made biscuits from scratch every single morning, rain or shine.

Of all her grandchildren, my resemblance to her is the strongest and it is uncanny how much I favor her. I would not be able to deny my bloodline even if I wanted to.

I can't cook biscuits though Granny...☺
