When Beverly was 7 years old, she gave her life to Christ, and was baptized in the Gulf of Mexico. This action led to a life of service to the Lord.She had an untroubled happy life in Cameron, because, in those days children could walk and play everywhere. She, her little sister Martha, and their first cousin Sonny Boy, spent many carefree days crabbing in the Gulf.The Singletary’s moved to Poland, Louisiana for her high school years.

They settled in Alexandria, Louisiana, where they began their family.In 1958, they were charter members of St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church. At her passing, she was the last charter member of the church. Jack was Warden when it was time for the young mission-status church to build a church. It’s been noted that “Jack may have gotten the bricks and mortar paid for but Beverly helped run the house.” He raised much of the money to build, as he was a salesman by nature. Beverly served in about every capacity available during her decades at St. Tim’s. She was a Sunday school teacher, on the altar guild, flower guild, participating in every reception, bridge luncheon, and social activity, sang in the choir, and was on the vestry several times. In the beginning she and other wives cleaned the church.She loved to play Bridge and was a member of the Alexandria Garden Club (she loved to dry flowers) and several other clubs. After her girls had grown, Beverly went back to college, where she obtained her Master’s Degree in Social Work. While in college, she formed Connection Central, where Residents of Central State Hospital in Pineville would be bussed to St. Timothy’s every Friday for fun, fellowship, a good lunch, and entertainment. This was her hands on project that flourished for many years.After graduation, she became a counselor at Alexandria Family Counseling serving as a Counselor for rape crisis, child and spousal abuse, and family counseling. She moved to Huey P. Long’s Acute Psychiatric Unit, where she was the Psychiatric Social Worker, a job she loved.Upon retirement, she began Wednesday Refreshment, a weekly ecumenical program for senior citizens held at St. Tim’s. She had a guest speaker, and served a good meal each Wednesday. This very successful program that lasted for many years, until her husband needed her to care for him.Beverly is preceded in death by her husband of 56 years, Jack M. Butler; parents, Herbert and Audrey Gates Singletary; a great-great grandson, Treyce Michael King, and many of her fur babies.She is survived by her daughters, Suzie Butler and Tish Robertson; five grandchildren, Lara Clotiaux King (Ronnie), Charles Clotiaux (Michelle), Micah Cloteaux (Hope), Christopher Meilleur (Lauren), and Abbey Leigh Robertson; eight great grandchildren, Joshua King, Lesley King, Kaitlan Clotiaux, Alainah Clotiaux, Braden Cloteaux, Molly Meilleur, Ben Clotiaux, and Jack Meilleur; one great-great grandson, Grayson Michael King; sister, Martha Singletary Catha; nieces, Marina Beirne and Sarah Pruiett, and a host of other family members and friends.In lieu of flowers, the family has requested St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church, 2627 Horseshoe Drive, Alexandria Louisiana 71301, for memorial contributions.The family wishes to express their appreciation to the staff at Matthews Memorial Health Care Center, that grew to love her feisty spirit; to Guardian Hospice for their communication and kindness until the end; and especially to Calvary Baptist Church and the Travelers Life Group, for their weekly care cards, prayers, and visitations for our mother.
