- Elizabeth 'Doris' Randall, 84, passed away peacefully January 1, 2017, at a Pittsfield hospital. She was born August 2, 1932, in Caribou, a daughter of Clayton and Blanche (Humphrey) Langley. Doris attended Palmyra and Newport schools, where she met and later married her beloved Jack. They were married on November 6, 1950, and had a long, happy life together for 64 years, until his passing in 2014.
Doris worked as a school lunch cook at the Palmyra Consolidated School for 22 years. She also worked at Guilford Woolen Mill until her retirement.
Doris and Jack had two daughters, Linda Marie and Anna Mae. She was a great mother and was thought of as a "mother figure" by many others who were close to her. She loved spending time with her family and friends. She never missed a family- or friends- get together where everyone always gathered around their special Aunt Doris. She also enjoyed country music and loved to sing along when her brother Bob played his guitar at those family gatherings. She enjoyed life to the fullest and never took anything for granted. She always had a happy, positive outlook on life.
Doris was a strong willed person and had great faith. We know she is resting peacefully with her husband and daughter. She will be greatly missed and will remain in our hearts forever.
She is survived by her daughter Linda Burleigh; her grandson Garrett Allen Burleigh; a sister in law, Sudie Faye Davis; three sisters, Joyce Cocheran, Violet and husband James McLellan, Maxine and husband Larry Plissey; several nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her parents, her husband Jack Randall, a daughter Anna Mae Randall, and a brother Robert Langley.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff at Sebasticook Valley Health for their great care.
Spring graveside committal services will be held at Riverside Cemetery, Newport, with Pastor Al H. Worden officiating. Cremation arrangements are by Crosby & Neal, Newport. Those who wish may leave written tributes at www.CrosbyNeal.com
