ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Muriel Franks Bradley
Winnie Muriel Frank-Bradley (1921–2012) has been a wife, mother, sister, aunt, friend, professional, volunteer and so much more. She graduated from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, in 1944 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Home Economics. After graduation, she worked as a Home Demonstration Agent for the University of Tennessee in Lewis County, TN. Muriel was the Food Supervisor at Jackson Madison County Hospital until 1959. She then worked Hardin County Medical Center as Food Service Supervisor until she retired. In 1980, she received the national Distinguished Health Care Food Administrator Award. Muriel’s family still owns and operates “Spring Valley Farms”, which her grandfather first started in 1881 with a small tract of land that has expanded and now stretches over 1100 acres. Muriel’s Memories was written from the heart of a woman devoted to her family and community for just over ninety years. She wrote these short stories in her later years as a historical legacy. Muriel is no longer with us, but her lively and humorous spirit lives on in her loved ones’ hearts, and in Muriel’s Memories.
