Agnes C. Singleton, a longtime resident of Woburn, passed away peacefully at her home Tuesday evening, January 10th, at the age of ninety-four. She was the beloved wife of the late John H. “Jack” Singleton, Sr., who died in 1988.
Born and raised in Somerville, Agnes was one of seven children of the late Norman and Susan (Lane) Conrad. She was a graduate of Somerville High School and continued her education at Burroughs Business School.
For fifteen years, Agnes was employed by the City of Somerville in the Auditor’s Department. She left work to stay home with her sons and, after they were grown, went to work at the Choate Hospital in Woburn as an Outpatient Supervisor. She retired after seventeen years, and continued to maintain a close relationship with her former co-workers. Agnes was an avid reader, enjoyed her garden, volunteered as a Sunday school teacher and, when her sons were young, was a Scout leader for Troop 501 out of St. Anthony Church. She also had a great talent for knitting and crocheting, and made many beautiful sweaters and blankets for family and friends. Her constant companion for many years was her cat, April. For two and a half years prior to returning to her home in Woburn in recent months, she made her home at Sunrise Assisted Living in Lynnfield, where she enjoyed participating in daily activities and chatting with her neighbors.
Along with her beloved husband Jack, she was preceded in death by two brothers, Norman and Joseph Conrad, and three sisters, Alice and Dorothy Conrad and Susan Sanderson.
Surviving are two sons, John H. and his wife Margaret of Lynn and Mark C. and his wife Sallyann of Londonderry, New Hampshire, a sister, Clare Donohue of Arlington, three grandchildren, Margaret, Jacqueline and Abigail Singleton, and many loving nieces and nephews.
The funeral will be held from the Lynch-Cantillon Funeral Home, 263 Main Street, Woburn, on Saturday, January 14th at 11:15 a.m., followed by a Funeral Mass in St. Anthony Church, 851 Main Street, Woburn, at 11:30. Interment will follow in Woodbrook Cemetery, Woburn.
Relatives and friends may call at the funeral home Saturday morning from 10 to 11:15 a.m., prior to the Mass.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to All Care Hospice, 16 City Hall Square, Lynn, MA 01901.

So very sorry to hear about Agnes.
