Evelyn Maxwell Singletary, 86, of Yonges Island, SC, wife to Everett Elby Singletary of 67 years, entered into eternal rest on Monday, October 25, 2021, surrounded by her loving family.

Born on January 12, 1935 in Lavonia, GA, Evelyn was a daughter of the late Clifton Jefferson Maxwell and Laura Marchant Maxwell.

She was a strong woman of faith and was committed to serving her Lord and Saviour. After the church closed, she and Everett became members of West Ashley Independent Baptist Church.

She and Everett enjoyed traveling, gardening, and spending time with their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
