Rest in peace sweet lady. You may be gone from this earth , but your beautiful nature and sweet smile live on in the smiles of your beautiful daughters. You taught them kindness and love that they share with others.
I will always cherish my childhood memories of you.

I have known Maryleen and her family, my whole life. She, without a doubt, was one of the sweetest people ever. People have joked forever, the closest thing to an Evans, is a Franklin. I will gladly take that. They are a great family! My sincerest condolences to Ronnie, Sonya, Sherry, Shirley, and the entire family!
