Mrs. Randall Has Life Story in Book By Susie Smith (Staff Writer) Few people see their own biography in print. One 28- year resident of Carroll. Mrs. Wilford (Catherine) Randall is. one. She possesses an inch-thick volume of her own life-story. Without Mrs. Randall's knowledge, her first grade teacher, Sr. Mary Hubert, took a special interest in her and began compiling spelling tests, letters, and other gems of information about her. In 1933 (third grade) Mrs. Randall transferred to another school. She had no contact with Sr. Hubert until 1948. Many of the photos and letters were gathered during this time span as Mrs. Randall graduated from high school, worked in Seattle, Wash., during World War II and settled with her husband in Carroll. Apparently Mrs. Randall's friends and relatives supplied the information. "I have no idea where she got all this information. She even kept a letter I wrote to her brother when I was in third grade," Mrs. Randall said. Whether Sr. Hubert had a specific purpose for the diary, or just a special interest in the Randalls is not known, but the booklet was eventually used to help the nun obtain a degree in education. Fearing the book might get lost as she grew older, Sr. Hubert mailed the booklet to Mrs. Randall in 1962. Prior to 1962. Mrs. Randall did not know it existed.

As needed, Mrs. Randall has helped to construct wood fiber flowers for the weddings of both her children and her own silver wedding anniversary. With the help of a friend, she constructed bridal bouquets, corsages and boutonnieres. She is currently collecting ceramic baby shoes representing each of her three grandchildren. Birth statistics and dates are painted on each shoe. And she continues her photographic interests, taking movies and still photographs of vacations and family. Some of her own prints were incorporated into her Mrs. Catherine Randall thumbs th rough her biography, titled "The Story of Catherine". How the statistics and biography by Sr. Hubert.
