Mytle Morris Franklin, 88, of Haynesville, dies April 8, 2020 after a period of declining health. She was born in Newland, Virginia and was the last of her five siblings: Robert, Rae, Norris, Virginia and Shirley. She was unique in so many ways. A “Leap Year Baby” she just celebrated her 22nd birthday! She was the valedictorian of Warsaw High School Class of 1949 and a member of Rappahannock Church of Christ. While raising her three children she worked for Tidewater Telephone Company and retired from Northern Neck State Bank.
