Kathleen Singleton Roy, UT

ROY, UT - Kathleen Grow Randle Singleton, age 82, passed away at home on July 14, 2011, after a lengthy struggle with multiple challenges. The richly deserved peace came during her sleep. Truly, the heart of our family is gone.Kathleen was born in Salt Lake City, Utah, to William G. and Jessie Knowles Grow, the fourth of seven children. Her first job was as secretary for a large meat packing plant. She was just 16 years old, the first sign of advanced maturity. She married Max Clifford Randle in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. Three children were born to them: Clifford Lee, a brunet; Kathy Ann, a red head; Launa Rae, a blond. Later, she married Don Keith Singleton in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. Life did not come easy for Kathleen, she gave birth to two stillborn babies. To help fill the void they adopted a baby girl, Julie Donn. With this family, she had 15 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. At age eight, Kathleen began what would become a very serious study of piano and organ. As an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, opportunities to share her talents were many. She became ward organist and she accompanied the choir at the tender age of thirteen. The depth of her ability led to her assignment as the rehearsal accompanist for Handel's Messiah in the Kearns, Utah, annual performance. Many will remember her work playing for an LDS stake program series of Broadway type musicals. It was not unusual to hear someone say when speaking of Kathleen, "Of course, she can play it." Kathleen's strongest traits may have been in spiritual matters. She taught the Church's young women for over thirty years. Many of those people still keep in touch with her. To quote her husband, "Kathleen is fun, she is also funny, but the constants in her life, despite years of pain, are humility and dignity. She was always a lady." TRULY THE HEART OF OUR FAMILY IS GONE. Funeral Services will be held on Thursday, July 21, 2011, at the Roy West Stake Center, 5080 South 3100 West, Roy, Utah. Friends and family may call Wednesday, July 20, 2011, from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m., at Myers Roy Mortuary, 5865 South 1900 West, Roy, Utah, and on Thursday, from 9:45 - 10:45 a.m., prior to services at the church.
