Betty Eileen (Dimick) Randolph, 87, formerly of Sweet Home, Oregon passed away Tuesday, February 10, 2015. She was born in Scotts Mills, Oregon; the seventh of ten children to Wiley and May (Yoder) Dimick.

Betty spent her early years in Sweet Home where she graduated from high school in 1945. During that same year, she married Robert “Bud” Randolph, and they celebrated 48 happy years of marriage before Bud’s passing in 1993.

In 1947, Betty and Bud welcomed their son, James Randolph, and daughter, Jean (Randolph) Wimer, followed in 1948. The family lived in Sweet Home until 1955, then they moved to Florence. In the mid-70s, Bud and Betty relocated to Anchorage, Alaska where they spent the next 14 years before retiring to Independence in 1988.

Betty was a loving, kind-hearted individual who enjoyed taking care of her family. Her children could always rely on her to be there for them. She also enjoyed playing Bingo well into her 80s and made many dear friends during those times. Betty had many happy years with Bud traveling in their motor home, gold panning and hosting friends and relatives in Alaska. She will be missed beyond measure by all who knew her.

Betty is survived by: her son, Jim Randolph; son-in-law, Don Wimer; brothers, Bill (Bonnie), Wiley “Shorty,” and Dick Dimick, sister-in-law, Emmy Dimick; grandchildren, Rebecca (Dave) Friesen and Beth (Vince) Jones; four great-grandchildren; and many family and friends. She was preceded in death by: her husband, Bud Randolph; daughter, Jean Wimer; and brothers, George, Chauncey, Rex “Scotty,” and Harry Dimick; and sisters, Dorothy Brown and Mary Ward.
