AUBURN — Mary Marshall Randall, 75, of Amberley Way passed away on Friday, June 25, at her home.

She was born in Auburn, Dec. 6, 1934, the daughter of John and Margaret Marshall. She graduated from Edward Little High School and furthered her education at Auburn Maine School of Commerce. She worked for many years at Linnell, Choate and Webber law office. She married Oliver M. Randall on May 15, 1971. She was a lifelong member of the High Street Congregational Church and a member of the Diaconate.

She loved cooking and caring for her husband, Oliver, the love of her life. She described her marriage as “a dream come true.” She and Oliver traveled to 25 states in their motor home after retirement and in later years, they spent winters at The Great Outdoors in Titusville, Fla.

They were members of the Dirigo Camera Club, where she won several awards for her unique photographs of flowers. Until her eye sight failed, she loved reading novels and doing crossword puzzles.

Another favorite past time for her was dining in local restaurants, knowing owners and servers by their first names. She was a true connoisseur of good food. She was also a lover of cats. She knew many people in the Lewiston-Auburn area, she could cite names, family members and where people worked. The family considered her a self-made historian of Lewiston-Auburn.
