Betty Rae Goth was born to Mary Alene and James David Goth on August 30th, 1929 in Fort Worth.  She attended school in Fort Worth and was a 1947 graduate of Paschal High School.

She married the love of her life Johnny M. Franko in 1947.  They shared 28 years of devotion and happiness which revolved around their family and friends.  She was a dedicated employee of Fort Worth National Bank for 31 years until her retirement in 1994.

She was loved by many who will truly miss her unconditional love, steadfast support and treasured life lessons, as well as the twinkle in her eye, infectious laugh, playful sense of humor, frequent ‘suggestions’ and especially her banana pudding.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Johnny, son John Michael, mother Mary Alene Talley and stepfather Clarence Talley.

Betty is survived by her children, Bridget & Steve Asbury, Chris & Cissy Franko, Brian Franko, Anita & Gary Steele; four grandchildren Brittin Karaffa, Kelly Gargan, John Steele and Leigh Steele; and six great-grandchildren Greylon, Crew and Leo Karaffa, and Golden, Felix and Raleigh Gargan; and sister, Judy Talley.
