Patricia, a very devoted Lion, would stop at nothing to help the visually impaired. Patricia was a beautiful person with a wonderful soul that will truly be missed by many.
Patricia Ann Franklin was called home to be will the Lord March 13,2020. She was born on July 6th, 1957 in High Point, NC. She was a woman of God, a wife, a mother, a sister, a friend, and a caregiver, but most importantly, she was truly a worshiper. She knew from whom her help came.
She had several professions, but embedded within them was her love and giftedness with people. She naturally covered people no matter the age or stage of their life. She was absolutely anointed by the Holy
Spirit her cup ran over. She attended High Point Public School. She was a member of Freewill Higher Heights Church.
