Margaret Singletary Lawson’s life journey began on June 14, 1947.
She was born in Salters, South Carolina to the late Roy and Ollie Bryant Singletary.
Margaret graduated from Charles E. Murray High School in Greeleyville, South Carolina. She later moved to Thomasville, North Carolina where she was employed as an assembler supervisor by Thomasville Furniture Industries, Plant C until she retired. After retirement Margaret continued to worked at Ingles Market in the bakery department for several years. Knowing the importance of an active healthy life, friends and family could find Margaret on Davidson County Community Campus participating in aerobics or in the exercise room. If this was not enough she also stayed active with the Thomasville Senior Citizen club.
Margaret was an active member of Brown New Calvary Baptist Church where she loved working on the usher board, singing in the choir and doing mission work which went far beyond her community. She traveled twice to Honduras to help others. When Margaret slowed down to relax, she would enjoy watching a good game of basketball.

Our family chain is broken And nothing seems the same But as God calls us one by one The chain will link again.
