    Obituary - Funeral services were held Tuesday at the People's Church for Pastor Milo W. Franke, 75, formerly of Grant County. Franke, of Sutherlin, passed away December 22 at a Roseburg nursing home after a battle with cancer. Franke was born March 31, 1917, in the tiny town of Greene, Iowa. His proud parents were William and Grace (Adams) Franke. At a young age, Milo headed west with his parents, his brother Clarence and sisters Eva and Doris. They settled in the Willamette Valley. Oregon was to remain Franke's home, and during his rich and very full life, he was a logger, rancher and, above all, a minister of the Gospel.
    Franke married Evelyn Schroeder on July 6, 1940 in Salem. He and his wife pastored churches in Mitchell and Dayville and also ministered at the Assembly of God Church in John Day for many years. Franke touched hundreds and probably thousands of lives through his consistent and loving ministry. He has been associated with the Assemblies of God for more than 50 years. He and his wife retired in 1989 and moved to Sutherlin.
    Franke's life and great love for people have been featured in numerous publications such as National Geographic, Charisma, and Guideposts. He was also featured in the books "The Walk West" and "The Road Unseen" both by Peter and Barbara Jenkins. Franke labored lovingly and thoughtfully on his own autobiography, which contained a wealth of stories and events that share a unique life centered around others.
    He is survived by his wife Evelyn; four sons Jim, Daniel, Donald, and David; two daughters, Loretta and Dollina; two sisters, Eva and Doris; 19 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren. Franke was preceded in death by his parents, William and Grace, his brother, Clarence and his first wife, Pearl.
    His sons Donald and Daniel officiated at the funeral services along with Revs. Bill Galliher and Earl Book. Internment was at the Belcrest Memorial Park in Salem.
