Martha (Pat) Randleman

Martha (Pat) Randleman was born July 24, 1920 in Los Angles and went home to heaven May

30, 2013 in Lancaster.

She was raised in the Antelope Valley, graduating from

Antelope Valley High School in

1936, Antelope Valley Jr. College in 1938, and UCLA in 1941.

Pat married Jack Randleman,

Dec. 19, 1942 and they raised four children together on their alfalfa ranch in Rosamond, California. Pat was very active in the community, volunteering in organizations such as the Boy and Girl Scouts, Little League, P.T.A., and Red Cross to mention a few. She served on the local election board and SKCUSD School Board. Pat attended the Wayside Chapel Community Church, serving the Lord in many capacities, Governing Board Member, Sunday School and VBS teacher, Community Bible Study Leader and Missions Support group.

After selling their ranch in 1970, Jack and Pat with their youngest son, Scott, moved to Mariposa, settling on Whitlock Road. After hearing of the need, she accepted a position of substitute teacher for Mariposa County schools and resumed volunteer activities within the community. After volunteering at the nutritional center, she became a charter member of the Golden Agers and a driving force making the Mariposa Senior Activity Center a reality. Some of her other community contributions included: member and volunteer of the Mariposa History Center and a docent at the Mariposa Museum; hostess for the senior lunch program and bingo night; leader for the women’s community Bible study, helped with the S.P.I.C.E. program and served as a member of the John C. Fremont Hospital board.

Grace Community Church was very important in her life where she was again a Sunday School teacher, served on the mission board, attended small care group Bible study, and helped with AWANA childrens ministry. Involvement in these activities demonstrated her servant’s heart.

Pat was not “all work and no play.” She spent her spare time fishing, reading, traveling, and watching any sport involving a ball on television, fishing, spending time with family and friends -- and was fishing mentioned? She loved Mariposa, and will be missed my her many friends. In the spring of 2008, to be closer to family she moved back to Rosamond.

Preceded in death by husband of 62 years, Jack, sons Patrick and Scott, she is survived by son Richard (Marcy), daughter Sue Ogden (Jerry), four grandchildren and various nephews, nieces and their families.

Memorial services are to be held June 29, at 11 a.m. at Wayside Chapel Community Church, 2584 Felsite Ave. in Rosamond.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial gifts may be given to the Ewing Wing, in care of John C. Fremont Hospital. The family would also like to know how Pat touched your life and what she meant to you. Please send remembrances to: Sue Ogden, Box 917, Rosamond, CA 93560.
