Anne M. Randell

Anne M. Randell, 92,  passed away peacefully surrounded by her family. She was the loving wife of the late Eugene J. Randell; beloved mother of David (Cindy) Randell, Sara (Greg) Randell Riley and the late Mimi Randell Levine (Jeff, m. Pamela Matsch); proud grandmother to Gina Randell, JD Randell, Mia Randell, Joseph Levine, Olivia Randell, Gregory Riley and Josh Randell; and adoring sister of Louise R. Stella.

Anne was born in Lyons and grew up during the Great Depression.

She was a gifted student, skipping two grades and graduating from Nazareth Academy at age 16. Upon graduation she immediately went to work to help support her family when her father took ill.

Anne was a longtime resident of Clarendon Hills and a faithful parishioner at Notre Dame Catholic Church for the past 63 years.

Family was always the most important thing to her. When her husband passed away unexpectedly, leaving her with three young children, she took a job as the school secretary at St. Isaac Jogues School in Hinsdale so she could be home with her children after school. Later, she worked for many years at the Dairy Council of Wisconsin, eventually rising to the position of executive vice president.

Following her retirement, she focused her energies on her grandchildren, attending all of their various activities and events. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and sister who demonstrated what it means to be compassionate and caring.

In addition to her love for her children and grandchildren, the bond she shared with her sister Louise was the bedrock of her selfless devotion to family. Her tireless work ethic was an inspiration to those around her.

She will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.

A remembrance service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, May 28, at Notre Dame Church, 64 Norfolk, Clarendon Hills. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to The National WWII Museum in New Orleans, Arrangements were made by Brian Powell Funeral Directors of Hinsdale.
