Betty Singletary Hester

Betty Ruth Singletary Hester, 83, of Whiteville went home to be with the Lord on Thursday, April 18, 2024, while at Lower Cape Fear Lifecare Angel House in Whiteville.

She was preceded in death by her parents, James Clinton Singletary and Delia Baxley Singletary, her beloved husband Michael Wayne Hester and her siblings. Left to cherish her memory are her sons, Vince Gerald Hester (Clark Vereen) of Myrtle Beach, Wayne Hester (Beverly) of Bladenboro, daughters, Rose H. Davenport (Gary) of Lumberton, Margie H. Lawson (Randy) of Lumberton, Cheryl H.

Kinlaw, Blake Lawson, Daniel Lewis, Santana Noble, Caroline Hester, Beth Ann Hester, Hunter Hester, and Ivy Hinson, and six great grandchildren.

Betty was a devoted daughter, sister, wife, mother, and grandmother.  She loved her family dearly and spent her life letting them know it, always providing what they needed and covering them in prayers daily. Betty loved to keep an immaculate home, cooking for her family, baking cakes, dancing, and going to the beach. She always dressed for the occasion whether staying in or going out and always shining. She will forever be remembered for the unconditional love and care given to all those she cherished.
