It is with great sadness that our family announces the death of Ruth A. Randall, who passed away peacefully on November 10, 2017 at her home in Venice, FL. Ruth was born on June 4, 1925, the daughter of James Milton and Sarah Ann Adams in Portage, PA. She was preceded in death by her parents, and loving husband, Cliff, to whom she was married for 66 years before his death in 2012. Ruth was the last remaining member of her family that included 13 siblings. She will be sadly missed by her children, Richard and wife, Diane (Brewer) Hebron, CT; Ruthann (Annie) and husband, Dennis Costello, Venice, FL; and Scott, Portage, PA; grandchildren, Amy, Jason, Megan, Danielle, Kevin, and Matthew; great grandchildren, Kelsey, Dylan, Adam, Julia, Aiden, Sam, Lily, Ava, Braydon, and Elliana; and by her very caring niece and nephew, Jan and Terry Schubert of Olmsted Falls, OH. Ruth was formerly employed at the Smart Shoppe in Portage. She loved boating, card games, throwing parties for any occasion, especially on Christmas Day, playing the piano, watching old movies and football, and knitting Christmas stockings. She especially enjoyed scrabble and socializing in so many different ways with her family, her Florida and Pennsylvania friends and neighbors, and with her lifelong best friend, Jane Thompson, and the entire Thompson family. Ruth lived life to the fullest and will be missed by all who knew her. A memorial service will be held to remember her at 3 p.m. on Friday November 24, at the Forest Lawn Chapel in Johnstown. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Crichton McCormick Park or the Portage Public Library.
