Our beloved one, Elizabeth Singleton brought love, laughter and a passion for life for 99 years. She was one of eleven children born to Rev. John Thomas and Anna Bishop Singleton, patriarchs of a pioneering family in the C. M. E. church. She was born in Hawkinsville, Georgia on April 25, 1906. At an early age the family moved from Barnesville, Georgia to Atlanta where Elizabeth received her education in the Atlanta University community. Her spiritual nurturing began at Atlanta's Butler Street C. M. E. Church where her father served as pastor and where she was a long time member. She served in various capacities of the church, including the Usher Board, choir, Westside Board and as church secretary for many years. Elizabeth remained a faithful and loyal member of Butler Street for more than 75 years. Following a period in New York, she returned to Atlanta following her fathers death and became employed by the Atlanta Housing Authority, and later with the Golden Age Society, where she remained until her retirement. It is noted that she could type 100 words a minute. Elizabeth, affectionately know as "Aunt Betty" or "Aunt Beth" by her family, gave generously of her time and means to family friends, and in support of the furtherance of God's kingdom. Throughout her life she was endowed with an outgoing personality full of of wit and wisdom which enabled her acquire many devoted friends. For many years she shared a home with her sister Martha, who preceded her in death.Elizabeth believed in the sanctity of FAMILY and encouraged family gatherings to bring everyone closer. Her home was often filled with many happy times with family, friends and lots of music. She also was an Atlanta Braves fan. The Lord blessed "Aunt Betty" with a long beautiful life, but God saw fit on the morning of May 23, 2005 at age 99 following illness to call his child home. We are truly grateful for her gracing us and others with her gift of her loving, and generous presence for 99 years. May your soul fly with the angels forever!
