Mary Singleton died Wednesday night at home, according to a Don Strange of Texas, Inc. spokeswoman. She was 93.
Singleton was the mother of Frances Strange, wife of caterer Don Strange. Don Strange died last year on Nov. 11.
Singleton’s breads and pies and were just a small part of her legacy with the famous caterer. She contributed recipes, such as Mother’s Brownies, which became the caterer’s signature treat. She also made desserts for the Steak Nite event each Wednesday in Waring.
Some of her recipes appear in the new “Don Strange of Texas: His Life and Recipes” cookbook released this month by Shearer Publishing. The book was compiled and written by Frances Strange and Terry Thompson-Anderson.
Services will be announced.
