MARY WARD TIMBERLAKE ALRED

November 19, 1920-May 12, 2015

Mary Ward, 94, was the last surviving daughter of
Claude Russell and Bessie Haddon Timberlake.
She and her seven sisters:
Maude Russell Bosworth, Novella Freeman, Claudia Timberlake, Fern Woodall, Jane Timberlake, Ruth Timberlake and Alice Wright
were raised in the Methodist Church of Stevenson.
Mary, Ruth, Jane, Claudia and Fern were pioneer business women in Stevenson.
Mary and Ruth ran BOGART'S DRY GOODS, Claudia and Fern started THE IDEAL BEAUTY SHOP and...
Jane was an early woman executive at THE FIRST NATIONAL BANK of STEVENSON, employed as a loan officer.

The TIMBERLAKE SISTERS were descendants of Railroad Pioneer brothers,
John P. and Joel S. Timberlake,
contractors for THE MEMPHIS and CHARLESTON RAILROAD.
They constructed the first Railway Bridge over CROW CREEK located near the STEVENSON RAILWAY DEPOT.
After completion of the railroad, the brothers settled in the area and opened a general store in Stevenson. The Timberlake family and succeeding generations
included a local newspaper publisher, a druggist, an automobile dealer, a movie theater owner, an attorney and owners of numerous mercantile businesses in
HISTORIC DOWNTOWN STEVENSON.
The Timberlakes were instrumental in the organization of the original STEVENSON DEPOT DAYS CELEBRATION in 1982.

IN MEMORY OF JOHN WESLEY SINGLETON

"John was a Master Craftsman of Stained-Glass objects, including wonderful Stained-Glass Lamps, which he generously shared with his family and friends. He also did magnificent transformations of furniture and other objects from almost useless to family "keep-sakes" treasured by all who saw them. His sense of humor was wonderful, even in ill health, which he did experience in many of his 87 years. He and his wife, Joy, were in their usual pew at our church, The First United Methodist Church of Stevenson, AL, on the day he departed this earthly life on that last Sunday morning. He will be missed by all who knew him."

*Addendum to Eulogy of John Wesley Singleton by his grandson, Johnathon Corey Singleton: "In my opinion, the best way to remember someone, is to speak of who they were to us. John Wesley Singleton was born on January 21, 1925, and passed on January 29, 2012, at the age of 87. Beloved husband to a wonderful woman, father of two accomplished sons, grandfather of two who aspire to be as successful as their elders. Honored WWII veteran of the island campaigns, a trusted brother in the Masonic Fraternity, accomplished artisan of many fine works. But I believe his family was what still meant the most to him. We'll never forget you and all you did for us."
FOR GRANDDAD: By Johnathon Corey Singleton
Read by The Rev. Bill Stone at his funeral at Rudder Funeral Home Chapel on February 1, 2012
1925-2012
