On Sunday, April 22, 2018 Virginia L. Randolph, age 90, of Hermiston, Oregon, passed away peacefully in Puyallup, Washington, under the care of hospice.
Virginia was born on November 2, 1927, in Tigard, Oregon. She was one of 10 children born to Ernest and Ethel (Flood) Borthwick. They later moved to Hermiston, Oregon, where Virginia lived until shortly before her death.
In 1946 Virginia married Ralph Hartley and they had six children: Dennis of Cottonwood, Arizona, Scott (Donna) of Summerville, Oregon, Brad of Portland, Oregon, Marcia Sherris of Kennsington, California, Janis (Terry) Williams of Lake Tapps, Washington, and Harold (Pat) of Enterprise, Oregon. They divorced in 1978. Virginia was married to Bill Randolph until his death in 1985.
Virginia spent most of her earlier years as a housewife raising her six children. She loved to sew and make keepsakes for her grandchildren and great grandchildren. A favorite activity was collecting fabric that she knew she could turn into blankets or other projects.
In the early 90’s she operated a cross-stitch store on Main Street in Hermiston, Oregon. She enjoyed cross-stitch herself, and was delighted with the people that came into her store.
Virginia was preceded in death by her husband Bill, her parents, brothers Neal, Bob, Jim, Richard and Gerald, sisters Irene and Mary Ellen and great-grandson Trevor Page. She is survived by two sisters, Carol Richmond of Hermiston, Oregon and Frances Loney of Apache Junction, Arizona. In addition to her six children and spouses, Virginia is survived by 14 grandchildren, 24 great-grandchildren and three great-great grandchildren.
A private celebration of life will be held at a future time.
