Ida Belle Singletary

Ida Belle Singletary-My road  been a little rocky on my way home to meet my Jesus. Ida transitioned February 9, 2021, at St. Elizabeth Hospital.

 Ida Belle Singletary was born September 20, 1944, in Struthers , Ohio. She was the baby to the parents of the late Rev. James B. and Lucille Griffin Singletary. She grew up on the Northside of Youngstown, she will let you know that she grew up in the Westlake area, and is a proud graduate of The Rayen High School, class of 1964, "Tigers all day baby!" as she would often say. After graduation, she was employed at Southside Hospital in 1968, as an Nurse's Assistant, and in the closing of the hospital she transferred over to Northside Hospital where she retired in 2000. Her passion was being an usher at her church, St. John A. M. E. in Struthers, Ohio. She also loved traveling with her sisters. She took joy and pride in spoiling her nephews and nieces by going to Idora Park, riding the rides with them and screaming the loudest. She also would "deck" them out during prom and graduation season, and bring goodies to family functions, especially with Klondike Bars. We will always hold her memories in our hearts and never to be forgotten.

She leaves 3 sisters giving God the glory; Susie J. "Sue" Hill with whom she made her home, Ethel Mae Jones of Liberty, Ohio, and Myrtis E. Owens of Toledo, Ohio, nephews and nieces giving him the praise; Lacy Jr., and Michael Hill (her caregiver), Leslie F. Owens, and Jerome A. Jones, Debra A. Hill, Sharon D., Margaret L. Singletary, Ruthie E. Anderson, Rev. Marla Daniels, her goddaughter and great-niece; Ruyshonnie Love whom she helped rear, and other relatives and friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents, siblings; James, Oscar, and Lula J. Singletary, and a niece; Leslie R. Jones.

The family wishes to thank the staff of Ashley Circle and St. Elizabeth ICU, and our aunt Esther McCain for your words of encouragement. Memorial service to be announced at a later date.

To my family:

And when one of us is gone, and one of us is left to carry on, then remembering will have to do. Our memories alone will get us through. Think about the days of me and you, you and me, against the world!

love, Ida

Ole Aunt Ida Belle....I remember you being Thee Best Auntie!!! And this goes for all your nieces and nephews that had the pleasure of being around you through out the years. Growing up I use to get dropped off after school to your job at the time Southside Hospital, and wait until you got off work. we would then proceed to ride the bus home. Of course the bus didn't drop us off in front of the house, but only on McCartney Rd so we had to walk the rest of the way. I absolutely hated it, but you tried your best to make it fun for me. Especially when we stopped by McDonalds! You were a beautiful, and I mean a beautiful person inside and out! SO many memories I have since we lived together, and I can go on and on. The most important thing is that you are at peace now, but you'll never be forgotten. NEVER!! LOVE YOU AUNT IDA BELLE
