Early in the morning on Sunday March 27, 2022, Barbara Memory Singleton, beloved mother and grandmother and friend, passed away at the age of 67 after a long battle with thyroid cancer in Durham, North Carolina.

Services for Barbara will be held at Munden Funeral Home, 908 Lake Rd. Havelock, NC 28532. The visitation will be held on Friday, April 1st from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. The funeral service will be held at 11 a.m., Saturday, April 2nd.

Barbara was born in Washington, DC on December 27, 1954, although she spent most of her childhood in Warner Robbins, GA. Barbara was so driven that she achieved both her Bachelor’s and her Master’s degrees from University of Georgia in only 4 years! Life then led her around the world and people were drawn to her liveliness and humor and she picked up lifelong friends at every stop along the way. She was the most giving, loving, selfless, compassionate woman who saved the best of everything for everyone else, especially her daughter, who was her absolute best friend in the world. 

Barbara settled down and raised her family in Havelock, NC where she started her 30-year career with the Federal Government. She worked for Department of Defense for many years and retired in Raleigh, NC from USDA. After she retired, she went on to own and operate a medical supply store in Chapel Hill, NC with her daughter for 10 years. Soon after her second retirement, she began the long and arduous battle with cancer, overcoming many obstacles that many others would've succumbed to. She is now free from the cancer in her earthly body and is able to live pain free and at peace in Heaven. 

She is survived by her daughter, Michelle (Christopher) Latoche, granddaughter, Madison Latoche, former husband Mike (Sarah) Singleton and his sisters, Betty Deal and Yvonne Jamison, and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Lee and Helen Memory of Greensboro, NC as well as countless aunts, uncles, and cousins.
