Charlotte Yvonne (Ratliff) Singley, 68, passed away Thursday, June 14, 2012 in Tulsa, OK, surrounded by her family. She was born in Muncie, IN on January 8, 1944, the daughter of Wallace James and Uldine Rosemary Ratliff. After graduating from Webster High School in Tulsa in 1962, Charlotte met the love of her life, James H. Singley, and married in Okmulgee, OK in 1963. They were married 48 years and would have celebrated their 49th wedding anniversary on June 29, 2012. James has been devoted to Charlotte never leaving her side, tirelessly taking care of her every need in both sickness and health. Charlotte and James have three children: Tracy Singley of Arlington, VA; Angela Singley of Dallas, TX; and Warren Singley of Helena, OK. Charlotte retired from Harris Data Corporation in Dallas, Texas in 1987 when she and James returned to Oklahoma to reside permanently in Pryor.
Charlotte enjoyed her puppies (Pepper, Molly and Lady), her kitty (Precious), garage sales, gardening, coupon clipping, bingo, Las Vegas, her motor home and traveling, but family was her first priority. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and sister. Her parents precede Charlotte in death.
