Vivian Renfrow Singletary passed peacefully in her sleep on Saturday, September 28. Her service and celebration will be 11:00 AM Wednesday, October 2 at Columbus Avenue Baptist Church. Graveside service will follow at the Oakwood Cemetery in Waco. The visitation will be 6 - 8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 1, at OakCrest Funeral Home, 4520 Bosque Boulevard, Waco.

Vivian is the daughter to Esther and Arthur Renfrow and a sister to Arthur O. Renfrow, Jr. (A.O.). She was born February 6, 1929 in Waco, Texas. Upon graduating from Waco High in 1945, Vivian attended and graduated from Baylor University in 1948. She made a 30 career of teaching school in the Spring Branch School District in Houston, Texas.

In August of 1949, Vivian married Cecil E. Singletary. They lived in Houston and raised their family of three children. They were members of South Main Baptist Church and then Tallowood Baptist Church both in Houston. They retired and returned to Waco in 1992 where they are members of Columbus Avenue Baptist Church.

Vivian is survived by husband of 71 years, Cecil; her children and spouses, Gail and Denny Copeland, Nancy and John Singletary, Jillian Singletary and five grandchildren: Tobin Copeland (wife, Adrian), Clay Copeland, Rachel Singletary Lytle (husband, Dalton), Kyle Singletary and Rainey Richards. Survivors also include five great-grandchildren: Dayde Copeland, Dawlson Copeland, Hudsyn Copeland, Cooper Copeland, Colton Lytle and many nieces and nephews.

Special thanks to the staff of Lakeshore Village Healthcare Center for all of their professional care, love and kindness. To Lisa Walters with Magnolia Hospice, you have been our rock. Thanks is not enough for all you have done in support of our family and her failing health!

In closing, II Corinthians 5:7, For we live by faith, not by sight.

Mrs. Vivian had such a sparkle in her eyes each day I saw her and said hello. We first met and began her last journey together in March. When I would ask her about Cecil, she always smiled. It was a privilege to have known her and I feel honored to have been blessed by her smiles. May God bless her family as they learn how to continue on their own journeys.
