She was preceded in death by her husband of 53 years, James B. “Jim” Franklin; her father, Horace Lee Clark; her mother, Lillie Mae Clark; her sisters, Myrna Reeves and Bobbie Marello; and her brother, Jimmy “Bo” Clark.

Susie never met a stranger and was a great friend to all who knew her; especially her best friend of 50 plus years, Betty Yarbrough.

She enjoyed spending time with her family, dirt track car racing, camping, fishing, cooking, swimming, and had a green thumb for gardening.

The family would like to extend a special thanks to Kare-in-Home Hospice for the utmost care.
