Randy loved life, the Lord, her family and her church. She worked at Reda Pump, Goodyear and OAI Electronics until her retirement. Her #1 passion was her family. She loved to have her house full of family. She loved cooking and making quilts. She wanted to make sure every family member had one of her beautiful handmade quilts. And if you got married or had a baby, she was sure to give you a quilt made with so much love, time and care. She also enjoyed making prayer quilts for the church. She has quilts spread all over the world, due to this passion.
Once you were family to Randy, you would always be family. It didn't matter if she was Mom, Aunt Randy, Grandma or Friend, her house and arms were always open to you.
