Gloria B. Randels, wife of the late Robert Randels, passed away quietly with her family at her side on Tuesday, June 15, 2021 at Kosciusko Community Hospital in Warsaw. She was 87 years old at the time of her death.
Born in Belfast, Nothern Ireland on October 27, 1933, Gloria was the daughter of William Guiney and Mary McMananley Guiney. She spent her formative years in Ireland and remained quite proud of her Irish heritage throughout her life. On December 15, 1956, she was united in marriage to Robert N. Randels in Cambridge, England; the pair had met while Robert was enlisted abroad. Robert preceded her in passing in March of 2002.
A loving, caring person, nothing meant more to Gloria than time spent with her family. Her position as wife, mother, grandmother, sister and aunt was incredibly important to her though she did work outside the home in positions at Flagship Restaurant, Harvey’s Department store and lastly in the WCHS cafeteria where she loved interacting with the students each day. She was an active member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church for many years and is dearly missed by her family locally and overseas. Gloria came to love Warsaw as home while remaining proud of her Irish heritage.
Those who survive with memories to cherish include children: Cabrina Randels; Cheri (James Priest) Randels-Priest and Robert (Lasca) Randels – all of Warsaw; five grandchildren: Bebhinn Priest, Christopher Priest, Patrick Priest, Brianna (Jared) Mutchler and Shannon Randels; three brothers: Chris (Anne) Guiney, Oliver Guiney and Jim Guiney; sister-in-law, Donna Kinsey and brother-in-law, Stewart Clark. In addition to her husband, Robert, she was preceded in passing by her son, Ronald Randels (2018); daughter, Caren Randels (1981); parents, Wm. and Mary Guiney; brother, Anthony Guiney; sisters, Particia Clark, Evelyn Guiney and Rose Guiney; nephews: James Clark and Stephen Kinsey and brother-in-law, John Kinsey. Gloria is also survived by many nieces and nephews.
