Together they had three children Stacey, Brian, and Nicki. Randy graduated from beauty school and spent most her time as a home maker along with a variety of work from cooking to cleaning, to milking cows later in life. She was the kind of person who would always look out for you. Caring for others was her passion in life, always putting others needs ahead of her own. When bad weather was in the forecast, she was the first to make sure everyone was safe and prepared. Randy was a strong person who prided herself in being a good mother and wife. She was known for never forgetting dates, loved to cook, bake and her passion for family was second to none. She made the best pork chops and gravy and really any home cooked meals. She was a member of the St. Olaf Lutheran Church and English Lutheran Church in Walnut Grove. She enjoyed crocheting, playing cards, and having coffee with her friends. Randy especially enjoyed being around her family and grandchildren.
She will be deeply missed by her family, friends and community.
