Martha Claire Singletary
Services for Mrs. Martha Claire Singletary will be held on Thursday, Nov. 7, 2019, at 11 a.m., at Jones Memorial Presbyterian Church in Meridian, with visitation from 10 -11 a.m., at the church. Interment will be in Magnolia Cemetery.
Mrs. Singletary, 89, of Meridian, passed away peacefully on Sunday, Nov. 3, 2019, at her home.
She wore many hats. First and foremost, she was a beloved mother and grandmother, aunt, friend, and teacher. She went by many names - Mrs. Singletary, Mrs. Secretary, NeeNee, Mamaw, Doey, Mrs. Martha, and best of all - Mama. She loved spending time with her family; and before her illness, she enjoyed bowling, traveling, playing bunko with her 20 plus year group, quilting with her beloved Jones Memorial ladies, sewing for her family and friends (especially creating homemade Raggedy Ann/Andy dolls), nannying for several Meridian families, loving on babies (especially her grands and great-grands), and perhaps one of her greatest talents, cooking Southern meals and desserts on a "dime's notice" for anyone who stepped through her front door. She was also a lifelong cat lover, and up until her illness, could beat anyone in a game of Scrabble!
She is survived by her son, Allan Wade Singletary (Vickie); her daughters, Amy Deen (Tim); Nancy Scott (Doug); Laura Lee Crocker (Derek); grandchildren, Ashley Lawless (Ed), Lesley Singletary, Bailey Singletary, Rachael Clayton (John), Anna Smithhart (Will), Neil Deen (Julie), Parker Singletary and his mother, Kathy Singletary, Eric Scott, Kyle Scott (Hannah), Jenna Scott, Emma Claire Crocker, Abby Crocker; great-grandchildren, Sully Lawless, Elah Scott, Jonah Scott, Adeline Smithhart, Dolly Smithhart, and Ellis Clayton; nieces, Kathi Bjork, Susanne Dullack, Joellyn Creamer, Denise Rashall, Dawn Broderson, B. K. Huffmaster and one and only nephew, Bill Harper.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Edward B. Singletary Jr.; son, Edward B. Singletary, III; her parents, Robert E. and Ruby M. Cowan; brother, Bob Cowan, and sister, Inez Harper.
