Ethel Singleton

August 15, 1924 — November 13, 2014

Ethel Rayola Singleton, was born August 15,1924 in Teton, Idaho to Eugene and Ethel Richmond Owens. The second of five children, she always talked about having a wonderful childhood in the small town of Teton. She had a special bond with her next younger sister Betty Jean. She often talked about their antics and how, when they dressed alike, no one could tell them apart. They did everything together, even double dating as they got older. Their bond has remained to this day, and Betty Jean has always held a special place in her heart. On November 13, 1943 she married her older brother's best friend and the love of her life, Darrell Singleton. They had 3 children, bought a farm in Wilford, Idaho, and together built their own home on it. In 1953, after studying the Bible, she said she made the most important decision in her life, being dedicated and baptized as one of Jehovah's Witnesses. From that time forward, what was most important to her was raising her children to love Jehovah God and to teach the Bible to others. In 1976 they lost everything when the newly built Teton Dam broke and took not only their farm and home but many of their neighbor's and other family member's who had adjoining farms, and some of their neighbors lives. By 1978 they set some new goals and moved to Wickenburg, AZ, where they purchased the Palm Drive Trailer Park. While Darrell improved and enlarged the Park, she took care of the business side of it. Collecting the money, paying the bills and deciding what improvements could be made next. What a different lifestyle for her after farm life in Idaho. In the year 2000, they sold the Park to retire and settled into a home in Mariposa Heights in Wickenburg. While she enjoyed her private life, she never lost touch with her good friends at Palm Drive, and used her spare time to pursue her spiritual goals, which included her door to door ministry and Bible study. Rayola is survived by her sister Betty Jean Hill of St Anthony, Idaho. Her sister in-law Darlene Owens of Mesa, AZ. Daughter, Linda (Danny) Smith of Ogden, Utah. Son, Denny (Melinda) Singleton of Star, Idaho. Daughter Karen (John) Rasmussen presently in Wickenburg. Eight grandchildren and fifteen great grandchildren. We would like to extend a welcome to you, to a memorial service for Rayola, on Saturday, November 29 at 2 PM at the Kingdom Hall Of Jehovah's Witnesses, 590 South Kellis Road, Wickenburg.
