RANDALL, FLORENCE A. Elegant. Gracious. Humorous. Mucho Encantaro. The world is less bright today with the recent passing of Florence (Flossie, Flo) Aldrete Randall, age 87. Born February 23, 1928, San Antonio, Texas. Died May 5, 2015, Farmington Hills, Michigan. A local community member since 1964. Florence passed with minimal discomfort and with immediate family members by her side. Death due to natural causes. Predeceased by: parents Michael and Margaret Aldrete; brothers, Michael and George Aldrete, sister Mary (David) Aldrete Lytle; Husband Richard Roy Randall; long-term love and partner Julian Galen. Survived by: sons Richard (Patricia) Alan Randall, Jeffrey (Lisa) Roy Randall; grandchildren Jeffrey (Theresa) Morgan Randall, Dylan Evans Randall; great grandchild Victoria Rose Randall; former daughters-in-law Barbara J. Randall, Claire Ivey. Florence's was an eighty-seven year journey of a life well-lived and international in scope. (A claimed genealogy to Spanish King Phillip II is neither confirmed nor doubted.) The trials and tribulations that besiege all of us were dealt with and conquered in a unique style that was all Florence. She orchestrated by action and communication a peace between blended families and a bond with friends rivaling any diplomat or king. She leaves behind a stationary collection not to be believed. Flossie took on all challengers and made you feel almost good about losing; just ask the local pickle-ball club or the U.S. Post Office. A formidable tennis player in younger years, Florence was an avid sports fan, loyal to all Detroit teams. Forgiven for her fondness of Tom Brady. A parent and grandparent without peer. She attended more events than a dozen soccer moms. A terrific cook and dinner hostess. Incredible, if sometimes foggy, holiday meals. Florence could create a perfect, authentic Paella and do things with an electric skillet nothing short of magical. Florence traveled. Her favorite spot likely the Pocono Mountains in eastern Pennsylvania. She had friends worldwide. She was knowledgeable and conversant on many subjects, including politics "opinionated" one son has said. Florence's friendships transcended any cultural or color boundaries. Florence Randall was a mighty spirit with a steadfast heart of heroic proportion. She bore a smile while staring straight at death. She loved her sons, grandchildren, great grandchild and family without reserve, judgement or condition. She was a joy to all who met her and remains a sparkle in the lives of all lucky enough to count her as family or friend. Florence A. Randall: wise and generous. She will be missed. Florence chose cremation. Memorial service details will be determined and announced. In lieu of flowers, please donate to a charity of choice in her memory.
