Shirley Maycele (Wing) Randall

August 13, 1953 - July 20, 2018

Orrington Shirley Maycele (Wing) Randall, 97, died on July 20, 2018, at Eastern Maine Medical Center. She was born on September 10, 1920, in Columbus, Kansas, the youngest child of Clarissa (Lynn) and Sherman Wing. She married Arthur Gordon Randall of Meriden, Connecticut, on August 13, 1953.
Shirley received an undergraduate degree in food science from Kansas State University and later a Master's degree from Columbia University.
She served as a nutritionist with the US Army during World War II, participating in the landing at Normandy Beach.
She was a registered dietitian and was a consulting dietitian for several area nursing homes.
When she first arrived in Maine, Shirley didn't know how to swim. She took lessons at the Bangor YWCA, ultimately becoming a qualified instructor. She taught many swimming classes, including those for children with special needs.
Shirley especially enjoyed line dancing, braiding rugs, and gardening. She had many friends in TOPS and was a faithful member of the Brewer chapter.
She is survived by a daughter, Lynn Randall and her husband, David Hill, of Monmouth, Maine; and by a son, Dr. Charles Randall and his wife, Dr. Susan Newhouse, of Merrimac, Massachusetts; and by a granddaughter, Katie Randall.
The funeral will be at the convenience of the family. A celebration of Shirley's life is planned for August.
