Rural Carrier Jennifer Singleton was recently delivering mail in Waynesville, NC, when she grew concerned about a customer whose mail was piling up.
Singleton alerted the woman’s neighbor, Sandra Ferguson, and police were contacted.
A responding officer checked on the woman and discovered that she was deceased.
Ferguson and another neighbor later told a local newspaper that Singleton often goes out of her way to assist others.
“We appreciate the service she provides,” Ferguson said.
