Celebration Of Life
Virginia Winningham Singleton
Born: 10/28/29 in St. George S.C. to Flora Mae Winningham(Robinson)
Virginia eventually moved to Brooklyn, N.Y. and graduated From Thomas Jefferson High in 1946
After achieving her LPN from The University of New York 1952 she married Luther Singleton.
She soon gave birth to Karen and Jared Singleton respectively. She loved and cared for under her roof, Joyce Bunch (Moore), Alex, Cherry and Lenice Straws (Houston) until their parents were able to.
She went on to achieve her nursing degree from the State University of New York A & T College at Farmingdale (SUNY) in 1978 to start, and then a list of other academic achievements followed. As her son, I had the privilege and luxury of benefiting from her love, affection, wisdom, guidance, education, moral compass, intellectual strength, common sense, intestinal fortitude, sense of fair dealing, justice, and righteousness.
She gave of herself unselfishly, the benefit of her wisdom and experience of her life, touched the hearts of hundreds of family members, friends, coworkers and those she congregated with in fellowship.
The advantage of having an up-close view of her, was that I was able to determine that her belief in god and her belief in the scriptures was strong. Her religious practices made her a beautiful extension of god.
Her standard of behavior earned her a richly deserved place of honor and respect in this world among all who knew her. God made her not only pleasant to look at, but a pleasure to be around.
She is preceded in death by her husband Luther, and daughter Karen. I personally will never recover from her absence. There will never be another like her.
Virginia Singleton’s cremains will remain with her surviving son Jared, until a date to be determined. At that time, she will be interned with her husband at the National Cemetery in Beaufort, SC. with a military burial. Family and friends will be notified of that date and time when it is safe again to congregate.
Jared. So sorry for your loss! We didnt know Ms. Virginia but a few years living next door but she was a beautiful lady and always a loving person. She loved my grandkids and our dogs. I know she had a strong faith in God and know she is in his hands and enjoying listening to her beautiful music! The Goulds

Jared, I remember meeting your mom a few times and each time it was a pleasure! She was very sweet and kind with a beautiful smile. She seemed very spunky too! I'm so sorry about your loss. You and Annette did such a good job being her advocate and taking care of her. It did not go unnoticed and Jehovah will continue to bless you for all you did for her. May the God of all comfort continue to give you the strength you and your family will need to endure this great loss. (2Corinthians 1:3,4) You have our love and sympathy.

I am having a hard time processing this. My god mother Virginia was an amazing mother and woman. It was because of her undying love, she took me in when I was born. Her love for me was the love God provided for me through her and it was way above expectations. She loved me and my other foster brother snd sister. I can't thank her enough for raising me in a crucial time in my life. Thank you God for her and goddaddy Luther, Jared and Karen. Im overwhelmed with knowing she played a crucial part in the one I have become today. She will always be treasured in my heart.
