On December 1, 2020, the creative energy that was our mother, Patricia Louise Wiggin Randles, left us to join her creator and Lord.
Patricia was born on March 12, 1930 in Missoula MT. Her family moved from Missoula to Seattle during WWll, then moving back to Missoula where she graduated from Missoula County High School. Her last several years she resided in McMinnville OR.
On March 26 of 1949 she married William (Bill) Randles. They had four children: Stephen, Richard, Joy, and Gaye.
Her retail experience began at the Missoula Mercantile where her creativity also included window dressing.
Patricia put her heart into making a home that was full of comfort and beauty. There was no end to her creative drive. Through the years she explored and mastered many crafts. This was expressed in everything, including quilting, knitting, painting with oils, pastels, and watercolors. She was also adept at sewing children and doll clothing, home decorating, enjoying embroidery, and the list goes on. Gardening was also her passion.
Although she went through some very tough times, she steadfastly moved forward and continued to display unconditional love, patience, strength, faith, and trusted in her Lord to take care of matters. Even through her last battle with cancer she displayed great faith, acceptance and grace, never once complaining or despairing.
She was a woman who blessed all who knew her.
Patricia was preceded in death by her husband, Bill as well as her father and mother Ivan and Louise Wiggin.
She is survived by her children Stephen (Debra) Randles and Richard Randles, Joy (Tim) Sander, and Gaye Randles, as well as her 11 grandchildren Jason (Suzy) Randles, Christopher (Libby) Randles, Renee’ (Kevin) Jones, Frank (Donna) Randles, Ryan Randles, Jessie (David) Boatman, Shane (Jessica) Sander, Tracy (Paul) Wilson, Dallas (Nicole) Sander, Corrina Pinto and Wayne Pinto.
