  Text: Margie Jones Franks, 82, formerly of Winnfield, LA, passed away peacefully in her sleep on January 7, 2017 surrounded by her family at her home in Dallas, TX. Her husband, Leslie C. Franks and sister Thelma Jones Bilyeu preceded her in passing.

Margie was born in Winn Parish, Louisiana on August 13, 1934 to Marion James Jones and Selma Keene Jones. She and her husband married on February 14, 1953 in Jefferson County, MS.

Margie was active throughout her life, caring for her family, maintaining their property and saving just enough time, at the end of the day, for a game of Dominoes with her grandsons. In her career, Margie had managed accounting for a local firm and most significantly succeeded as a restaurateur with her daughter, Jeannette. She had a great passion for family and preserved every card, holiday memento, drawing, etc. from her loved ones in a large scrapbook with handwritten notes about each occasion. Her other passions included quilting and sewing, which she not only made for herself, but shared with many friends and family.

Margie is survived by her daughter and son-in-law Jeannette and Wayne Thigpen, brother Marshall Marion Jones and wife Helen, sister Violet Sue Jones Lowe and husband Milam, grandsons Jody Thigpen and wife Christina and Michael Thigpen and wife Amy and many loving great-grandchildren Madison, Blake, Austin and Emily. Not to forget her loving canine companion of the last 12 years, Barney. Always protective, he cuddled next to her and kept her warm until she chose to say goodbye.

Visitation will be Monday January 9, 2017 from 5:00pm to 8:00pm and on Tuesday January 10, 2017 from 9:00am until time of services. Funeral will be at 1:00pm in Southern Funeral Home chapel with Rev. James Simons officiating. Burial will be at Jones Cemetery.

Death 7 January 2017 ‎(Age 82)‎ Dallas, Dallas, Texas, USA
