Martha Frank, born April 28, 1928, was the only child of the late Frank Alvin Collins Jr. and Martha (Johnston) Collins. At age 18, she married William Luther “Billy” Jolley. Martha Frank was a longtime fixture of Fulton and South Fulton. She was the assistant administrator of the former Hillview Hospital, an accountant for the former Parkway Manor Nursing Home and the office manager and accountant for the Fulton Electric System, where she eventually retired. Martha Frank was an officer for the Tennessee Valley Authority Accountants Association, member of the Daughters of the American Revolution and longtime member and Sunday school teacher at Fulton Cumberland Presbyterian Church, and she was active in the Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts of America.
She was an avid reader, bridge player and traveler who spent much of her retirement visiting places throughout the United States and Great Britain. Martha Frank’s humor, warmth and integrity will be missed by all of those lucky enough to have come in contact with her during her rewarding life.
Martha Frank was preceded in death by her husband of 50 years, William Luther “Billy” Jolley Jr.; her daughter, Tina (Jolley) Watson; and her son-in-law, William Christopher Dorris.
She is survived by her daughter, Patti (Jolley) Dorris of Bowling Green, Ky.; her son, John Collins Jolley of Tulsa, Okla.; and two granddaughters, Megan Dorris of Bowling Green and Alaina Bleu Pearl Wolfe of Tulsa.
