I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Mrs Randell. She was my grade 5 teacher in 1986 and I remember her as a wonderful teacher! She was a great woman then and I am sure all these year later. My heart goes out to all her family and friends on the loss of this beautiful woman.

Mrs Randell was my teacher for 2 different grades over 40 years ago – lucky me! (Dawson & St Michael’s) & she was the best teacher with the kindest, warmest heart. She did her best to help each student do well & succeed. I felt she truly cared for her students. I have thought of her often & I have tried to locate her the past few years to let her know what a difference she made in my life. I couldn’t find her until I saw her obit. today. She looks just like I remember with her beautiful smile. I can still remember her laugh. Thankyou Mrs Randell.💗 My sincere condolences to her family & friends.

Robert, Don, Cindy, Pauline, Tina and Joe. We are deeply saddened and sorry for the sudden loss of Aunt Mabel.. As I think about some of the sleep overs that Cindy and I had at Grenfell Ave, I have a wonderful memory of Aunt Mable teaching us to cut a pattern and sew a business suit for my Barbie doll. Obviously her love of teaching carried well beyond the classroom and I will forever cherish that memory. What a wonderful woman who will be missed by many. Love to you all, as well as the many others in your family.
