Margaret Faye Brooks Franks, 77, passed away peacefully Sunday, January 8th, 2023. She was born on October 3rd, 1945 in Hardin County, the third of four children of James and Maxine Brooks. She was united in marriage to Max Franks on June 26th, 1965, who preceded her in death. She and Max were affectionally called the "dynamic duo" as they were always together and ministering to others.

Mrs. Franks worked at Brown Shoe Company before having children. She was an amazing seamstress, artist, cook and mother. She was actively involved in her church. Mrs. Franks always made sure the family met for Sunday dinners for as long as she was able. She loved her family dearly.

She was preceded in death by her sister, Doris Jean Brooks Clement, and a brother, Bryan Brooks.

Margaret's wish for her life was to leave happy trails.
