Ouida Franklin Historical club member


Services for Ouida Franklin, a longtime member of the Maryland Historical Society, will take place at 10 a.m. tomorrow at the Henry W. Jenkins and Sons funeral home, 4905 York Road.

Mrs. Franklin, who was 84, died Friday of a heart attack at her home on St. Albans Way in Homeland.

Born in Savannah, Ga., the former Ouida McCullough attended Miss Pape's School for Girls there. She also attended Wesleyan College in Macon and was a 1927 graduate of the now defunct Maryland College for Women in Lutherville. She later studied at the Peabody Conservatory, where she majored in piano and voice.

She married Dr. Haswell D. Franklin in 1927. Dr. Franklin died in 1961.

Mrs. Franklin was an avid bridge player and also studied genealogy. She was proud of having been listed in "Ripley's Believe It or Not" for having attended 12 consecutive years of school without being late or absent.

Mrs. Franklin is survived by a daughter, Nancy F. Price of Ruxton; a son, Haswell M. Franklin of Baltimore; and 10 grandchildren.
