April 15, 1944 – June 28, 2021

Early in the morning on June 28, 2021, Beverly Singleton woke in the arms of her Savior Jesus Christ. After a 2-year fight with cancer, her family was reminded that her life on earth wasn’t the ultimate goal after all, but rather the precursor to her eternal life in Heaven which has only just begun. Praise God!

Even so, Bev lived her life on earth with great joy. Laughter, exuberance, and ready smiles filled her days, and the days of everyone who got to share life with her. She sang all throughout the day. Her family learned to stop and listen for her singing, which was a faster way to find her than walking from room to room. She could most often be found travelling with her “James Darling,” loving on her grandkids, gardening, walking with friends, or singing with her church choir friends. Her joyful presence will be dearly missed.

Bev was born in Underwood, North Dakota to Otto and Alma Kesselring. At 17 years old, she spent a year in Seattle, WA with her sister, Marjorie. From 1962-1966, Bev attended Covenant College in St. Louis, Missouri, where she majored in Bible. She met the love of her life, James E. Singleton while attending college, and they were married on July 1, 1966. Their family increased with the births of Clay, Kirk, and Kendra.

Bev blessed the world with her work in radio ministry, getting her start with Joni & Friends; continuing her work in radio with Focus on the Family and Salem Communications; and in 1997 she started Media Solutions in the light of her heart for connecting ministries with organizations who can amplify their Biblical message to the world.

Bev also served on the Board of Directors for the Cerebral Palsy Association of Colorado Springs, and was an active church member at Village Seven Presbyterian Church, where she sang in the choir.

Bev is survived by her husband, James E. Singleton; sisters Marjorie Williams, Judy (Bruce) Fiol; brother Doug Kesselring and brother-in-law Jerry Vonderheide; children Clay (Rita) Singleton, Kirk (Kerry) Singleton, Kendra (Steve) Kammer; and grandchildren Jillaine Singleton, Quenby (Jesse) Ramirez, Alden Singleton, Gabrielle Singleton, Hilary Singleton, Havaleh Singleton, Juliette Singleton, Crandall Singleton, Marston Singleton, Rachel (Robert) Koch (great-grandson Daniel), Kendra Singleton, James Singleton, Kenneth Singleton, Owen Kammer, Timothy “Teo” Kammer, Kai Kammer, Elizabeth Antram, and Nicholas Antram. She is preceded in death by her parents, brothers Michael and Don Kesselring, and sisters Marilyn Vonderheide and Carol Kesselring.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, July 3, at 2pm at Village Seven Presbyterian Church. (A graveside service for family will be held at Pikes Peak National Cemetery at 9am on July 3.)

A livestream of the memorial service will be available through September 1 at https://boxcast.tv/view/bev-singleton-memorial-service—july-3-lujlm8znlx2qo1jqc9dq.

  20. I was so sad to hear that Bev passed away. I worked with her at Focus on the Family years ago. It was always a joy to hear her humming a tune or singing a phrase from a song. She was a shining example of Christ’s love in the way she treated everyone and made you feel like family. I’ll never forget the encouragement she gave to me during a difficult time. I had to smile remembering when she made a delicious choke cherry pie for an event she and Jim hosted at their home. God blessed so many people through Bev. Until we meet again at Jesus feet.
