Obituary for Linda Lee Franklin

Linda Lee Franklin went to be with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on December 4, 2017 after a courageous battle with cancer. Linda was born December 10, 1939 in Canfield, Ohio, the oldest of three daughters born to Ivan and Edna Hunter. In 1956, she married the love of her life, Leonard Franklin, and they enjoyed 52 years together until his passing in 2008.
She is survived by her sisters, Judith Liddle of Tucson, Sherry (David) Westover of Canfield, her children Donna (Russ) Cleghorn of Canfield, Ivan Franklin of Tucson, and Leonard (Rebecca) Franklin, Jr of Salem, New Jersey. She is also survived by 6 grandchildren, 9 great grandchildren, and nieces and nephew.
She was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all. To honor her wishes, a memorial service will not be held, but she will remain forever in our hearts.
