Florence Singleton

Florence Singleton, 67 of Hulett, Wyoming, passed away on February 10, 2021 at Monument Health in Rapid City, South Dakota.

Florence Ann Margret Martinez Singleton was born on Jan 10, 1954, to Abenicio (Benny) Martinez and Alivra (Vira) Juanita Trujillo Martinez. Florence was born and raised in the area of Shoshoni, Wyoming.

She was the youngest of three sisters and loved being the baby. She graduated from Shoshoni High School and went on to study at CWC.

Florence had the hugest heart and family meant the world to her. She devoted her life to taking care of others, even to a point of worrying herself sick. Even when told to relax she still felt the need to take care of her family, including her close friends she adopted as family.

Friends were also a big part of Florence’s life. They will all remember her kind heart, positive attitude and generosity. Florence was a rock and inspiration to all who knew her.

Other than spending time with friends and family Florence enjoyed crafting, nature drives, cookouts and her peaceful country life.
