Franklin Featured in Hometown Highlight


Janice Franklin, center, with her daughter and son-in-law Stanley and Daronda Spicer.

Tucked away on a quiet street in the City of Greenwood, a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who despite her age and physical limitations continues to care selflessly for her family.

Janice Franklin will tell anyone, she’s lived a blessed life. Her children and extended family treasure her, and her greatest moments in life have been spent with them. Particularly, gathered around the table filled with homecooked food. Fluffy homemade biscuits, breakfast ham, gravy and some of the best chocolate pie you’ve ever eaten.

Franklin is also the caregiver for her adult disabled daughter, Sandra. Although her own health has continued to deteriorate, she has found strength in her faith and as a mother to care for the daily needs of her daughter.

She finds no sacrifice in her day-to-day life, but rather continues to shine with joy and a positive spirit.

It is with great pleasure we feature Franklin in our Hometown Highlight. If you know of an ordinary citizen doing extraordinary things, we want to hear about them! You can send your nomination -HERE.-
