Obituary for Billye Lynn Franklin

Billye Lynn Franklin (Age 77) passed away on Monday, March 11, 2019 at Dallas Methodist Hospital after a short, but valiant battle with Pancreatic Cancer.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, March 23, 2019 at the home of Jerry & Billye Franklin, 917 Shady Vale Dr. Kennedale, TX beginning at 2:00 pm.
Billye was born August 23, 1941 In Idabel, Oklahoma to Mother Stella Schmits and Father Bill Bateman. She was a kind and devoted wife, a strong and loving mother, grand and great grandmother, and a cherished friend to all that have been given the opportunity to love her. Billye was a highly intelligent woman, well read, and adventurous. She took pride in her family, her home, and her marriage of 49 years. She was the one you looked up to, but also the one you looked to for honesty. You were wary of the all-knowing pointer finger, but took refuge in the warmth of her smile. She has taken a piece of all of us, but has also left a little piece of herself with each and every one of us. She is gone, but will never be forgotten.
Survivors include Husband, Jerry Franklin of Kennedale, TX; Great Grandchildren, Roman and Steven Ponticelli of Weatherford, TX; Granddaughter, Stephanie Ponticelli of Weatherford, TX; Grandson, Dustin Franklin of Fort Worth, TX; and sister; Wilma Hatfield of Oklahoma City OK.
Billye was preceded in death by Son, Steven Franklin.
