OBITUARY

Norma Katherine Randle

August 20, 1927February 14, 2021

Norma Katherine Tucker was born in Waco, Texas to Homer Burton and Mary Katherine Tucker.

The little family soon moved to El Paso, where her sister, Nancy Ruth was born and where they lived until Mom was 14 years old. She graduated from Sunset High School in Dallas in 1944. She met George Washington Randle, Jr. through her dear friend and George's sister, Mary in Dallas, but soon afterwards she moved to Washington D.C. to work for the FBI. It wasn't long before George drove all the way to Washington to court her and bring her back home to Dallas to marry her. They had 3 children, George Washington III, John Burton, and Susan Lynn.

She worked for Blue Cross Blue Shield with Mary, at Time Life for Mr. McCombs, for Martin and Martin attorneys, and finally, for many years she worked for the law firm of Locke Purnell, even rounding out her career by working for the President of the firm, Stanley Neely. She was also a past president of the Dallas chapter of Business and Professional Women.

She chose St. John's Episcopal Church after having searched for a considerable time for a denomination that felt just right for her, and was a member for almost 50 years. She sang in the choir for decades and enjoyed it very much. She volunteered as a Day Coordinator at the White Rock Center of Hope for 25 years following her retirement from the legal profession.

Her loves were her dogs, her art work, poetry, the birds that God sent to her back deck, butterflies, and, of course, chocolate. But the greatest love she gave to her children. She once wrote, "I cannot write on paper my love for the 3 of you children and the joy you have brought me through the years. I am thankful for my life because of you. There is nothing else on this earth that I consider of real importance."

She is preceded in death by her parents Homer Burton and Mary Katherine Tucker; and sister Nancy Ruth Bach. She is survived by her children George Randle (Kathy), John Burton Randle, Susan Jackson (Richard); grandchild Jeff Randle; great-grandchildren Hunter and Zoe Randle; nieces Sally Frame (Gene) and Mary Brownlee (Tim); along with cousins in Waco.

I met Norma as a volunteer at the White Rock Center of Hope. We struck up a friendship that lasted for more than 20 years. We were kindred spirits. We both loved Jesus, people, pets and art. She was a very talented and gifted person. We began having lunch on every Thursday when she volunteered at the Center. We never talked about politics, but we could talk about religion. She loved Jesus and I did too. We remained friends over the years even though we both no longer volunteered at the White Rock of Hope. She was 30 years my senior so I began looking to her as an older sister or Mother type figure. But definitely a gift from God, for no better friend I could find. I love and miss her very much.
