Rose Ella Singleton passed away November 5, 2014 in Conroe, Texas. She was born September 23, 1927 in Houston, Texas to the late Orville Robert Ralston, Sr. and Roberta Blanche Titcomb Ralston. She was preceded in death by her only sibling and his wife, Bobby and Billie Ralston; and by her husbands Milton H. Russell and William Singleton.

Rose is survived by her daughters, Judy Lindstrand and husband, Dennis of Camrose, Alberta, Canada; Edna Short and husband, Hershel; Bonnie Stroud and husband, George; and Metsie Russell all of Conroe, Texas; her sons Milton (Rebel) Russell and wife, Scharlotte; and Robert Russell and wife, Denise of Conroe, Texas; grandchildren, Rae Ann Munden and husband, Glenn; Angela Johnson and husband, Dennis Keith; Erica Streeter and husband, Jason; Tiffany Rose Jackson and husband, David; Chad Russell, Brittany Russell, and Tara Russell; great-grandchildren, Amanda and Sara Munden; Samuel and Noah Johnson; Brianna and Seth Streeter; and Hunter Russell; also nephew and nieces, Ricky, Terrie, and Tammie Ralston.

Rose was a people person. She never met a stranger. During her life she took pleasure in serving others; a Christian quality taught by the example of the life led by her grandmother, Ella Titcomb, and her many great aunts and uncles. Rose was a member of the Church of Christ.

Moving to Conroe with her children in 1962 she began working behind the lunch counter of Clark's Pharmacy; and later as a waitress at the Texan Café and the Kettle Restaurant. Rose did her best to provide for her children. This was accomplished by hard work and the help of her mother and grandmother.

Two things Rose loved were playing bingo and ice cream. Whether at the Conroe American Legion Hall, the Willis VFW, or Tejas, where she was given the nickname "The Queen of Tejas"; she was ready to play. One of her most favorite things was Blue Bell's Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream.

The family would like to thank the staff at Conroe Health Care Center and the Rose of Texas Hospice for their kindness and loving care during the past months.

A private family burial will be held at the Willis Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers and in honor of Rose's memory, donations may be made to the Rose of Texas Hospice, 1610 Woodstead Court, Suite 395, The Woodlands, TX 77380 or a .
