Cathy Singleton Williams
Her Living Spirit
Cathy “Cat” Singleton Williams was born to the late Elder Elouise Cromwell and Harry Singleton on July 11, 1955, Charleston, SC. Cathy attended Murray-La-Saine Elementary and James Island High School. She graduated in 1978 with a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice from Voorhees College in Denmark, SC, where she became a member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. Education being a major pillar in her life Cathy, earned her Master of Education Degree in Secondary School Counseling in 2010 from East Central University.
On September 18, 1982, Cathy was joined in Holy Matrimony to her love and life-partner, Edward “Eddie” E. Williams. The Lord granted this union more than 34 years of marriage. She was an outstanding and treasured wife, mother, and “doggy” grandmother. She was not only mother to her children of the home, but a mother to those fortunate enough to be showered by her affections. Cathy’s passion was to love on people and take care of “Everybody”.
Her portrait of Life reveals Cathy’s commitment to perseverance, determination, compassion, and love. These deep-rooted values were evident in her roles as a probation and parole officer, US Army volunteer, teacher, and counselor. She was employed with Lawton Public Schools, where she mastered the art of being an advocate and providing hope, safety, and happiness for students and faculty.
A born-again believer, she accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as her Savior in her youth at St. James Presbyterian Church. Over the years as she authenticated the existence of heroism in her efforts to defeat medical ailments attached to Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus, she grew into an even greater relationship with her Heavenly Father. In this pursuit she became a faithful member of the Rose Hill Church of Christ family.
God, in His infinite wisdom, put his arms around Cathy and lifted her to rest in His Garden on Monday, February 27, 2017. Surely her parting has left a void. Her beautiful smile and the cheerfulness of her presence will forever be remembered. She was preceded in death by her father and mother Harry and Elouise, and a brother Levy (Bunny) Gaillard.
Her legacy of life exemplifies an abundance of love and happiness, and she will eternally be held dear and cherished by her husband Edward Williams; two children, Tiffany Williams (Hinesville, GA), and Edward E. Williams, Jr. (Dallas, TX); sister Thomasina (Geneva) (Joe) Green; brother Thomas (Margaret) Cromwell; brother-in-law: Paul Williams; sisters-in-law: Laura (Joe) Gladden, Rachel Brown, and Lavinia (Jimmy) Williams; Cora Lee (Jerry) Ladson; and a host of aunts, nieces, nephews, cousins, “adopted” children and caring relatives and friends; future son-in law CW2 Kellen A. Brown and future grandson Kellen Lekel Brown; future daughter-in law Courtney D. Conwright.
Services are pending at this time.
Eddie and Family: It is with deep regret that I share with you this time of grief for your dear wife, Cathy. I've grown to appreciate you and she over the years. Your kindness and courtesy have always been foremost in our conversations and relations. I will truly appreciate the remembrance of Cathy and her inspiration for all that is good.
Yours in Christ.

My condolences to the family. I am sorry for your loss. I pray God comforts the family during this difficult time. May the many wonderful memories of Mrs. Williams bring her family and friends lasting comfort. A comforting thought to keep in mind is at Revelation 21:4 ""And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain will be anymore. The former things have passed away."" The family is in my prayers.

Offering sincere condolences to the family and friends. Mrs Cathy seemed like a wonderful person who was dearly loved by all who knew her. Our Heavenly Father Jehovah God (Ps. 83:18) knew her best of all and longs to restore her life (Job 14:14,15) May the family find comfort in the many promises the Bible says will soon come about. (Acts 24:15; Ps. 37:29)
