Karyn grew up in Oklahoma with her parents and two siblings, Darrell Duff and Zella Dodson. She was preceded in death at birth by brother Terry Duff.

On November 6, 1959, Karyn married the love of her life Charles Franklin. In 1980 they made Burleson, Texas their home where they raised their three children. Karyn opened a convenience store called Karyn's Grocery where she touched the lives of many customers who walked through those doors daily. Karyn also helped her husband run his plumbing business, Charles Franklin and Son Plumbing. Her nine grandkids became her world and was the reason for her beautiful smile. She lit up every time she was with them. Karyn was a faithful woman and read her bible daily.
