Sarah Louise (Gleaton) Franklin

September 24, 1931 ~ October 1, 2018 (age 87)

Sarah Louise Gleaton Franklin would like it announced that after 87 years, she has gone to dance and sing with the angels in Heaven. By the time you read this, she is walking, talking and laughing with family and friends (old & new). While Sarah has temporarily said good bye, there is no doubt she will be waiting with hugs and smiles when she sees you all again. In fact, God may put her over “Meet & Greet” at the Pearly Gates.

Sarah was raised in Springfield, SC. She was a star basketball player and drama club member at Springfield High School. She furthered her acting ability at the University of South Carolina and was an avid Gamecock fan. She was a dedicated member of the Springfield Baptist Church, and enjoyed being a part of the Elderberries. She devoted her working career to Savannah River Site and was proud to say she was there when it all began in 1951. Sarah never met a stranger and loved people for exactly who they were.

Sarah exited this stage leaving a daughter, Beth (Steve) Morrone, a niece, Sally (Ry) Tipton, a nephew, John (Vicky) Horne, other extended family members, her special friend, William (Sam) Carter and his children, who she loved as her own.

During the last years of her life, Sarah opened her heart to all the loving caregivers at PruittHealth of Barnwell, and the many special friends she made there.

A Celebration of Life will be held at four o’clock p.m., Thursday, October 4, 2018 at Springfield First Baptist Church Springfield, SC. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service at the church on Thursday.

Donations can be made to the National Kidney Foundation, 508 Hampton St., Suite # 200, Columbia, SC  29201.
