In Memory Of Myrtle Randolph

Lloyd Moyer, Fremont, Calif.

Myrtle Randolph, the beloved wife of Wright Randolph, departed this life March 14, 1963, just three days short of living three score years on this earth. She is survived by her husband, to whom she was married in 1924, one daughter, Mrs. Jeanine Anthony and three lovely grand-daughters and a host of friends.

The last thirty four years of her life were spent as a preacher's wife. It would be difficult to find one who could equal her in this noble role. She was a blessing and ever present help to her husband as he served his Master in preaching the unsearchable riches of Christ.

Hers was a life of love and devotion to God's Truth, the Cause of Christ and the salvation of Souls. She never missed an opportunity to teach the truth and to encourage others to accept and obey that truth. Her every act was motivated by an unswerving faith in Jesus Christ and complete fidelity to His gospel. Thus her life was a thing of beauty; an example and inspiration to all with whom she came in contact. Countless numbers walk in righteousness because of the influence of the life of this godly woman. Only eternity can reveal the good accomplished by this "mother in Israel." Truly, her works shall follow her.

The esteemed and exalted position she occupied in the hearts of those who knew her was evidenced on Monday afternoon, March 18, when a large audience almost filled the auditorium of the church building in San Bernardino, Calif., to pay tribute and respect to Myrtle Randolph. Brother Jerry Evans and this writer spoke words at that service. There was little that either of us could say because Sister Randolph had already said it all so eloquently by the life she lived.

Of course, she will be missed by loved ones and friends. Yet, our hearts shall leap with joy as we recall precious memories of past associations and we can utter a prayer of thanksgiving to our heavenly Father for allowing us to know Myrtle Randolph.
