Virginia Franks (12-13-18) service 12-18-18

Virginia Sue Dicus Franks, of Huron, Tennessee, was born Nov. 29, 1940, entered into her Heavenly home on the morning of Dec. 13.  She was preceded in death by her loving husband Clyde Franks, and her only son Jeffrey Carroll Franks, along with multiple other family members she had lost in her 78 years here on Earth.
Born the daughter of Roy and Lota Dicus, Virginia carried many roles in her life: businesswoman, wife, mother, sister, aunt and friend. Her most prized title of these, by far, was that of grandmother. She loved her three “girls,” Andrea, Amber and Alyssa dearly, but nothing could surpass the love she had for her great-grandchildren, Casen, Kennady, Lucas, Callee, Greyson and Coy.  She was also very proud of her grandsons, Shane and Lee.
Virginia was the definition of love, always willing to lend anyone a helping hand. She lived her life as a true example of a God-loving Christian woman. Her church and her love of the Lord were the two most important things in her life. Her life was lived faithfully for the Lord, and she never missed an opportunity to worship Him or spread the Gospel. Her love for Jesus radiated through all things she did daily.
Virginia was the center of her family. She loved each and every one of her family members and was the glue that held so many things together.
In addition to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, she is survived by five sisters, Mildred Holder of Clifton; Mary Pevahouse of Hohenwald; Roberta Brown of Lawrenceburg; Diane Prater and Vallery Battles, both of Clifton; and one brother, Jerry Lyn Dicus of Savannah.
Services were held on Tuesday, Dec. 18, at 3 p.m., at Shackelford Funeral Directors of Savannah.
“You are my sunshine, my only sunshine. You make me happy when skies are gray. You’ll never know dear, how much I love you. So please don’t take my sunshine away.”
