A smile, a book, a flower, and a helping hand defined the essence of Randall May Heath. She was beautiful on the inside, as well as in her physical bearing. She was creative and enthusiastic about the very smallest joys of life.
Randall loved her family, dedicated her life to learning, and found joy in cultivating nature’s blessings. Her passing leaves an emptiness felt by all who knew and loved her.
Randall graduated with honors from Mendenhall High School; received her B.S. from Memphis State University; earned a MLS degree from the University of Illinois in Library Science, and did doctoral work at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. She retired from UNCC as the Head of the Art and Architecture Library, where she met her husband, Kingston, a professor of Architecture.
In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Mendenhall Public Library, where Randall first developed her love of reading.
