Obituary for Mother Annie Lee Randle

Mother Annie Lee Randle, affectionately known as “Nana” to most, was born on September 14, 1929 in Aberdeen, Mississippi, daughter of the late John and Georgia Cole. She lived in Aberdeen, Mississippi before moving to New Jersey with her late husband Robert Lee Randle, Sr. for 50 years. After his death, she resided for 11 years in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Annie was well-known for her superior cooking and baking skills. It was common to have the neighborhood lining up for her famous Sweet Potato Pie, Peach Cobbler, “Sock It to Me" Cake, Coconut Pineapple Cake and Chocolate Cake. During her time in Roselle, New Jersey, the passion for children born in the 70’s (Troy, Andre, Tamekia, Quantes, Jeanette, Kareem and Inisha) gave her the vision to open a child care center and ran it for over 20 years.

Annie was a quiet, peaceful, silly and strong God-fearing woman. She loved to laugh, sit outdoors and watch cars go by, and take rides. When she was ready to go, she would use her country talk and say, “Us go.” Although quiet, she constantly prayed and held strong to her faith. Her walk in life was summed up by the old time saying of, “Father, I stretch my hand to thee - No other help I know - If thou withdraw thy hand from me - O’ whither shall I go.”

Annie Randle was a member at Morning Star Community Center Church in Linden, New Jersey where she served as a Mother for many years under the leadership of Dr. Therman E. Evans and the late Bishop Irvin Evans.

On Monday, August 19, 2019, Mother Annie Randle departed this life peacefully at her home at the age of 89.

She was predeceased by her three sons: Ossie Randle, Robert L. Randle, Jr. and Kevin D. Randle; great-granddaughter, Ja’Mayah Harris; two brothers and three sisters.

Annie leaves to cherish precious memories, her four daughters: Rose Wilder, Georgia Randle, and Roxanne Randle of Raleigh, North Carolina and Alice Randle of Newark, New Jersey; three sons: Michael Randle (Detra) of Elizabeth, New Jersey, William Randle of Roselle, New Jersey and Joe Cole of Indiana; 23 grandchildren, 47 great-grandchildren, 3 great-great-grandchildren, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
