Emma Franz Obituary

Well it took me 104 years, 11 months and 7 days, but I finally made my journey to Heaven.  I haven't let the grass grow under my feet since I arrived.  I've been teaching the angels how to crack and peel pecans and to play dominoes, of course, all with the Lord's help.

I've been visiting with those gone before me, my parents, Caroline and William Mareth, my husband Floyd Conrad Franz, daughter, Sissie Charbula, sisters; Annie and Angie Harding, brother Willie Mareth, and many beloved friends and relatives.  

I've had a very blessed life, and to carry on my legacy, I leave my son; Floyd "Buddy" Franz and his wife  Karen, daughters; Elizabeth Nell  Charbula and Billie Franz Kucera.  Also my 10 Grandchildren, 12 Great-Grandchildren and 5 Great-Great-Grandchildren.

Before my failing health, I was involved with the Women's Group at Emmanuel Lutheran Church in Inez, The Inez Community: Benefit Association, 15 years of Inez Elementary School, 4-H Leadership, Victoria Home Demonstration, and where ever else I was needed and could pitch in to help.

My family has requested a private family service, so services were held on Wednesday, November 29th, 2023 at Slavik Funeral Home beginning at 3:00 pm. Interment followed at Hirschhauser Cemetery in Inez, with Pastor's Larry Green and Cindy Bailey officiating.  In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions be sent to Hospice of South Texas, 605 Locust Avenue, Victoria, Texas, 77901, or Emmanuel Lutheran Church, P. O. Box 309, Inez, Texas 77968.

Services have been entrusted to Russell Todish of Slavik Funeral Home, 209 N. Allen Street, Edna, Texas, 77957, 361-782-2152.
