From Paulist Fr. Bruce Nieli on August 25, 2016: "My dear friend, Memina Franklin, was called to Eternal Life early this morning. She was a great leader in service to the Hispanic/Latino community in the Catholic Church nationally and in her home Diocese of Memphis, as well as in giving decades of ministry to the children and families of St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital. May she together with her dear husband Ralph rest in the arms of Jesus with Our Lady of Guadalupe at their side!"
