Barbara M. Kramer Obituary
Barbara Mae Kramer, nee Singleton, 85, St. Clair, departed this life Friday, Aug. 30, 2019, in Union.

Barbara was born Nov. 28, 1933, in Clayton, the daughter of Wray L. Singleton and wife Fannie, nee Paul. On June 18, 1955, she was united in marriage to Francis Bija Kramer, and five children came to bless this union.

Barbara was a Christian and member of Friendship Missionary Baptist Church in St. Clair. During her working years, she drove a school bus for many years. She also worked as a dialysis technician in St. Louis, and then as a grill cook at Walmart. Barbara loved people and enjoyed interacting with the children she drove, and the folks she met through her work. She was an avid Cardinals baseball fan and enjoyed going to the games, and later watching them on television. Baking and cooking were favorite hobbies, especially when her family was gathered around her table. She was never idle, and enjoyed doing crochet and also was an avid reader. The time spent with her family filled her heart with joy.
