October 26, 1974 – March 6, 2019
Jennifer Tara McGonigle Randell was born in St. Anthony on October 26, 1974 to John and Ruby McGonigle. She was born with health problems but never allowed those problems to prevent her from becoming the loving and caring person she was. On September 16, 1995 she married Barry Randell of Bide Arm and there they made their home. Here they raised their two sons. In spite of numerous health difficulties, Jennifer developed her special talents. She was very artistic, enjoying a variety of different craft works, her specialty being mat hooking. She embroidered quilts and with the help of her mother-in-law and aunt finished a number of projects that she had set as goals after she was diagnosed with cancer in 2018. She did not let this diagnosis defeat her, but courageously battled until the end. She left her family and friends early on March 6th. She is survived by her husband Barry, sons William and Jonathan, her parents John and Ruby McGonigle, Brothers Christopher (Laurie), and Jason (Jacqui), Nieces Bethany and Krista, and Nephew Alex. She is also mourned by her mother-in-law Margaret Randell, brothers and sisters-in-law and numerous friends. Jennifer was predeceased by her Grandparents, William and Rebecca Pilgrim, and Francis McGonigle and Marylou McGonigle-Vance, as well as one Aunt, and three Uncles. As we remember Jennifer, we remember a courageous woman who refused to be defeated by the difficulties of life and who fought bravely to conquer this dreaded disease and who loved her family passionately. Family and friends were received at the Apostolic Faith Church in Bide Arm from where the funeral was held on Sunday, March 10, 2019 with Pastor Howard Canning officiating. Interment followed in the Apostolic Faith Cemetery in Bide Arm. Funeral arrangements entrusted to Kerry M. Fillatre’s Funeral Home, St. Anthony and Roddickton, Alicia Patey Funeral Director.
