Monica J. Randall, age 75, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on July 17, 2017. Monica was born July 12, 1942, in Wanda, Minnesota, a farming community in Southern Minnesota. She and her family lived there until 1951 when the family moved to a farm about four miles south of Lindstrom, Minnesota, where her mother, Mary Eichten, a widow, still resides.
Monica graduated from Lindstrom High School in 1960, and from the St. Joseph’s School of Nursing in Little Falls, Minnesota, in 1963. She married her husband, Jim Randall, in 1964 at St. Bridget’s Catholic Church in Lindstrom, Minnesota. She worked at St. Luke’s Hospital, and when her husband finished Law School at the University of Minnesota, the family moved to Hibbing, Minnesota. There, Monica was the chief nurse at the first Alcohol Rehabilitation Center, the “Hope House,” in Virginia, Minnesota.
She and her family, now three children, moved to Center City, Minnesota, in 1985, where she still resided.
In Lindstrom, she started a new career as a realtor with Chain of Lakes Realty firm and worked as a realtor for several years before she moved on to her first love, rehabbing older homes, and that was her strength. Family, friends, and other realtors would come to her to fix up and repair homes from small jobs to complete remodels.
Monica is survived by her husband, R. A. (Jim) Randall; her sons R.A. (Tony) Randall III and spouse Jessica, James S. Randall, and her daughter Kathleen Ann Randall; five grandchildren, Nicholas, Gabrielle, Amelia, Monique, and Vida Belle; her mother Mary; 13 brothers and sisters; and numerous nephews and nieces.
Visitation will be at Grandstrand Funeral Home in Lindstrom, Minnesota Friday, August 18, 2017 from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. At 7 p.m., Sister Beatrice Eichten will conduct a service.
Interment will be private, and at a later date to be determined. In lieu of flowers, Monica would prefer you make a donation to a charity of your choice, or Family Pathways. Condolences may be expressed online at www.grandstrandfh.com.
