She was united in holy matrimony to Hiawatha Clinch Franks and to this sacred union three lovely children were born: Selina (Tony) Robertson, Hiawatha, Jr., and Derek.

Sweet memories of her will

    I’m sorry for your loss, but grateful for Mrs Saundra Franks moving on to a better place. I was watching the movie “Glory” and while reading the credits I noticed the name Saundra Franks. I hit Google and this info popped up. I’m hoping you’re family, but if you’re not I pray for you good health and God’s blessings just the same.
