Louise attended Montgomery County Public Schools and shortly after married William Frank Savage Sr. She later married James Edward Nathaniel Franklin Sr., they resided in Landover, MD. Mom was blessed with 10 children: 7 boys and 3 girls. She survives by 6 children, Mary Underwood (Damon) of Harrisburg, PA, Kenneth Savage (Peggy) of West Muffin, PA, Laurie Evans (Robert) of Pasadena, MD, James Franklin, Jr., (Leatrice) of Deltona, Florida, Sandy Chambliss (Juan) of Pasadena, MD and Richard Franklin (Charone) of Suitland, MD.

She began her career with Prince George’s Public Schools in August 1979 and retired after 31 years. Mom enjoyed bowling in her younger days, playing poker around the clock, cruising and spending time with her family. For some of us, we like to say mom’s favorite were her boys, which was true, but there’s nothing mom wouldn’t do for any of us, we were her life, she enjoyed being a mom, her grandchildren and our family gathering. She loved to be on the run and only needed minimum sleep. Parents are our leaders and now she’s gone, it’s just us, let’s all make her proud of “us” the way she made us proud to call her our mom!
