Mary Franklyn “Frankie” Talton, 74, of Dawsonville passed from this worldly existence into the loving arms of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Monday, November 22, 2021. She died peacefully after more than two years of health issues.
Frankie was born March 7, 1947, in Emory University Hospital where her parents, the late Jim and Helen Talton, had been married in 1942 in the Emory University Chapel. After high school and some business school, Frankie lived in and around the Atlanta area until she moved to her parents’ home in Dawsonville, “Laurelwood”, to help take care of family. Frankie loved the woods, nature, and all the animals who came there. She was a long time member of the First Baptist Church of Dawsonville where she served as a volunteer in the church office for many years.
Frankie is survived by her sister, Susan Talton Reeves, and her “favorite” brother-in-law, William “Bill” D. Reeves, her “second sister”, Angela P. Giles, and numerous Talton cousins with whom she shared many family visits and trips.
A memorial service will be held on Monday, November 29, 2021, at 11 o’clock at the First Baptist Church of Dawsonville. Rev. Stan Lovell will officiate.
The family will receive friends at the church beginning at 10:30 a.m.
In lieu of flowers contributions may be made to the First Baptist Church of Dawsonville for the Music Program, a favorite of hers and her parents. Donations may be mailed to 900 Highway 9 North, Dawsonville, GA 30534.
