Obituary of Francele Singleton

Francele Singleton, Daughter of, Richard and Hattie Howard Brooks, died at Banner Boswell Hospital in Sun City, Arizona on January 29, 2023. Her passing was brief and peaceful, just seven days short of her 100th birthday. She was raised in the household of her parents, her formerly enslaved grandmother, and her 12 siblings. Fran became a member of the Historical First Baptist Church of Henderson, Kentucky at a young age. She attended Edgewood Elementary School and graduated from Douglas High School. She received her Licensed Practical Nurse degree in 1953. Like many others during the war years she migrated north to Detroit, Michigan where she met and married Alphonso Singleton on November 17, 1942. Their marriage lasted until his death on December 12, 1991. Fran and Al moved to Sun City West in the 1980’s. She became a member of the First Baptist Church of Sun City West. She enjoyed for many years her family, friends, and many visits to the casinos. She was often a very lucky winner. Fran was legendary for wearing her high spiked shoes, sharp clothing, and her stinging sense of humor. Of her siblings she is survived by her sister Mary O. Reese of Phoenix, AZ and a brother, William A. Brooks/Rosa, of Colima, Mexico. Fran and Al had no children, but she leaves many nieces, nephews, and a host of friends to mourn her passing.
