Obituary for Hollie Jo Singleton Dean of Carthage

Hollie Jo Singleton Dean, 69, of Carthage, NC, left her mortal shell for eternal life on September 20, 2022 surrounded by love and family.

Born in Cheyenne, WY, on January 22, 1953, she was the daughter of the late James Oscar (J.O.) Singleton Jr. and Nancy Stone Singleton.

Hollie leaves behind her husband of 51 years, William Dean of Carthage; a sister Cynthia Singleton Moore (David Moore) of Inman, SC; a son William Dean II (Gwen Dean) of Carthage; a daughter Elizabeth Dean Hoyle (Trent Hoyle) of Shelby. 5 grandchildren, Raven Hoyle Causby (Chris Causby), Zoe Dean, Andrew Hoyle, William Dean III and Ethan Hoyle. 2 Great grandchildren, Damian and Anthony Causby.

Hollie was an avid crafter whose talent knew no bounds but her passion was knitting, which she thought of as inexpensive therapy. During her own long battle with Melanoma Cancer, she knitted and donated caps to various NICU and Cancer centers for their patients. She also enjoyed teaching others to make crafts. Hollie spent most of her life doing whatever she could to help family and friends, to say she will be missed is an understatement!

A celebration of Hollie’s life will be held at Bole’s Funeral Home in Southern Pines, NC on Friday September 30, 2022. The family will receive friends from 4 – 5pm followed by a Memorial Service at 5:30pm.

Graveside service and interment will be held Saturday October 1, 2022 at Cleveland Memorial Park in Shelby, NC at 4pm. Arranged by Cecil Burton Funeral Home
