On January 23, 1951, an angelic spirit was born in Dallas, Texas to the proud parents of Gladys Booker Jones and Andrew Bennie Jones Sr. Peggy Louise Jones was the youngest and only baby girl of this union.

Peggy received her formal education from Dallas ISD and graduated from South Oak Cliff High School in 1969. She continued her education at East Texas State University and received her BA from the University of Texas at Arlington. She also earned a CPC (Certified Professional Coder) from the American Academy of Professional Coders. Peggy started her career with the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in the Department of Plastic Surgery. She was recognized as “Coder of the Year” by Dallas Medical Center Chapter AAPC.

At an early age, Peggy began her spiritual journey at Carver Heights Baptist Church of Dallas, Texas and remained a faithful member for over forty years. She served on the Women’s Ministry and Christian Education as a Sunday School Teacher. She proudly led the Usher Board as President and Director for many years. In 2019, Peggy was honored with the prestigious title, “Woman of the Year”, of Carver Heights.

Peggy Jones met the love of her life, Ollie Van Franklin, and dated for five years. In 1971, they united in holy matrimony and to this union was born their only child- Brylon Demond Franklin. Her most favorable times were traveling and hanging out with her family and shopping on “Black Friday” with her nieces.

Peggy Franklin was preceded in death by both of her parents and her husband. Her memories will continue to live in the hearts of those who remain: one child, Brylon; one granddaughter, Drasia; two brothers, Andrew Jones (Kerrie) and George Jones (Vera); one sister, Vickie Benson; two sisters-in-law, Marva Mays and Delores Fambles; three aunts, Frances Jones, Virginia Clemons, and Ruthie Lackey; a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and extended family members; special friends, former co-workers, and the Carver Heights Baptist Church Family.

A memorial fund has been set up in Peggy Franklin's name with Be The Difference Foundation. Their mission is to create awareness and improve the lives of all people affected by ovarian cancer through education, support and research.

In the highest regard and most precious memories- I salute the life and legacy of Sister Peggy Franklin - a most gracious loving servant of God. Peggy was one of a kind and once she touched you with her breathtaking smile and sweet aroma of politeness - life would never be the same! She left You with more joy and enthusiasm for living life with more love and positiveness. She was a quiet loving person who love despite what others may have thought or felt . She knew who she was and what her convictions were and she lived by them .
Family and friends I join you in sadness but I thank God for allowing her path to cross mine!
God bless and trust God he will see us through .
Loving submitted - Sis Rosalind Nabors & Family

Family--my prayers & love during this time of heaviness & loss. But, oh my, what an incredible legacy of elegance, beauty, intelligence, integrity, service, commitment, charity, devotion and love! Generations have been & will be blessed because of the seeds of wisdom & love that she sewed in such a short time here with us. So many good times, so much joy, and so much laughter between us. Her love and her continuous example of selflessness is forever planted in our hearts and minds. I can see her now with those big, beautiful new angel wings! Thank you Aunt Peggy for your sweetness & love. I love yall & am here when you need me.

I had the pleasure of knowing Peggy for over 40 years as our children attended Tyler Street together. Our paths crossed again as we worked at two companies together. Our friendship blossomed as we would get together to have game time at one of our homes. We last met at Peggy's home in Jan. We would tease her because Van would always call her as soon as she got to the gathering and several times afterwards just to check on her. Her smile will be missed. She was a special friend.
