Linda Scriven Franklin

July 2, 1950 ~ May 26, 2022 (age 71)


Linda Franklin moved to her new address in heaven on May 26th, 2022. She was born to Lawrence and Virginia Scriven on July 2, 1950.
Linda loved her husband and her children passionately. Married for 51 years, she was a lover, best friend, companion, comforter, and cheerleader to her husband and children. Sharing a lifetime together, Ted and Linda experienced successes and weathered storms side by side as one. Complimenting each other perfectly for over half a century, the many years of love and loyalty that Linda and Ted shared are an inspiration to us all.

Linda's family and friends enjoyed her quick wit and straightforwardness as well as her ever nurturing spirit. Her funny antics and uncoordinated mishaps filled you, as well as herself, with laughter and earned her the nickname "Lucy" (from the I Love Lucy show) by her loving husband. 

Deeply compassionate, her friendship, care and counseling brought others through very difficult times in their lives. In turning to the scriptures, and through her service as a pastor's wife, she found strength and courage to walk through her own personal hardships.

Linda received her business administration diploma from Bryant and Stratton College. She held positions as an executive assistant in law firms and in the medical field. Linda was also an accomplished clarinetist. She used this talent to play music specials in her home church where she served alongside her husband for 17 years, and also in churches across America as she traveled with her husband in the ministry of "Rebuilding America One Church at a Time".

While Linda was a proper and classy lady, she also brought humor and her fun-loving personality into marriage, motherhood, and into her service in church ministry. Her husband Ted, found amusement in watching her lift and throw a broken metal folding chair out and over the side porch of the church that he was pastoring. Linda simply laughed instead of scolding her children who might or might not have thrown watermelons out of the attic window just for the fun of seeing them splat.

As a teenager, she ran with her cousins throughout Mayville, NY every summer. If you're searching for one of the accomplices who was responsible for throwing a whole picnic table into Chautauqua Lake, you need not look any further, as she won't be turning herself in.

Her beautiful life will forever be cherished in the lives of those that she left behind; her husband Ted Franklin, whom she was married to for 51 years, her three children Alicia (Scott Mizel spouse), Jacob, and Bethany (Brooke Kressler spouse) as well as her grandson Micah Mizel, and her two brothers Tom and John Scriven.
