Patty married William Tyler (Ty) Franklin in 1968. They lived in Salt Lake City where Ty was VP for JELCO Incorporated, building Power Plants in the West. Upon Ty’s retirement in 1985, they moved to their retirement home in New Smyrna Beach Florida. This home they built together, a product of their love and commitment to one another. After Ty’s death in 2003 Patty chose to stay in Florida and care for their home out of devotion to Ty.
