Christy Ann Willett-Franklin

November 8, 1951August 22, 2019

God blessed Troy and Millie Willett with a baby girl, Christy Ann on November 8th, 1951 in Ft. Worth, Texas. Christy was born premature and the oxygen that helped her live caused her to lose her sight, however, being blind was only a small part of what made Christy who she was.

When she was in elementary school it was decided that she should attend the Texas School for the Blind in Austin where she made lifelong friends and continued through to graduate high school. From there she briefly attended the University of Texas and made Austin her home. She married Joseph Franklin August 3, 1973 and they were together until Joe’s death in April of 2006.

Christy’s trials in life and faith and love for the Lord made her willing and able to listen to and pray for the many who were drawn to her over her lifetime! Christy shared the Gospel of Jesus with all that she could until her last days!

Thank you to all who cared for Christy at Sagebrook Care Center in Cedar Park and also to St. Gabriel‘s Hospice for helping to make her last days as comfortable as possible.

Christy’s Christian Victory Service will be at 2 pm on Saturday, August 31st, at Holy Word Austin, 10601 Bluff Bend Drive
