Mary Ann Singleton was the daughter of Cynthia Julia Fredricks and John James Singleton.
Mary Ann was a shy, good-looking young lady. She had long black hair, grey-green eyes, 5' 6" tall and a slender build. Her father had talked of sending her away to school but instead she met John Price Fullmer, and after a two-week courtship they were married on April 6, 1901 in Orangeville, Utah. Mary was seventeen years old and John was thirty.
After their marriage they moved to Tintic in Juab County, where John's father worked in the silver mines, and they lived there a year. Mary Ann, for the first time in her life, had the luxury of new dresses and pretty things.
They were happy, they had many friends, but they also had their challenges and sorrows. They had fifteen children, including two sets of twins. They lost three babies, the last one was stillborn.
John died June 8, 1930 leaving Mary Ann to raise eight unmarried children, six under the age of fourteen. After John had been dead twelve years Mary Ann married Squire Groesbeck June 16, 1942.
When daughter Irene died February 7, 1953 Mary Ann took her death hard. Irene had been ill most of her life and had a special place in Mary Ann's heart.
Mary Ann's life was frought with worries and strain over the years of World War II. At one time she had four sons over seas in the service. Three of her daughters worked in shipyards on the coast. None of Mary Ann's children were lost in the war.
Mary Ann was the most kind, patient and lovable person, She worked hard all her life. But she lived only for her family for she loved them dearly.
