Shirley "Shirl" Jeanne Randa

1932 - 2021


Shirley Jeanne Randa "Shirl" passed away peacefully on Sunday afternoon, April 18, 2021. She was surrounded by loving family. She was born on April 16, 1932 in her home near Mentor, Minnesota. She grew up on a dairy farm with strong Christian values taught by her parents. She worked hard doing farm chores, including milking cows every morning before attending school. She learned to cook and sew from her Mother. She graduated Valedictorian from Mentor High School. She attended Concordia College in Moorhead, where she met her soul mate Sig Randa who she married on August 24, 1951. They were happily married for 67 years. They were blessed with six children together.  She was a member of Christ Lutheran Church. Matthew 25:40 defined her life: "Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me." Shirl was so devoted and generous to her family and friends her entire life. She will forever be remembered for her kindness, patience, generosity and extraordinary faith in Jesus Christ.  She was forgiving, and always searched for the good in everyone she met. Shirl will be deeply missed by all the lives she touched. Shirl was preceded in death by her husband, Sigurd Randa; son, Karl Randa; parents, Ben and Hilda Kittleson; a sister, Harriet Lewin. She is survived by her children, Jon Randa (Kathy), Eric Randa (Kim), Kris Randa (Yvonne), Lori Randa (Joe Vukelich) and Leif Randa (Lori). Also, many grandchildren and great grandchildren.
