Randy Bostic was born good.
She exuded love: for a great meal with friends; for Irish tunes; for Becherovka; for organizing her home; for her family; for her neighborhood. She cherished most enduringly her late husband of 35 years, Gene, and her twin daughters, Darcy and Morgan.
Randy modeled a life centered on joy, travel, and meaningful work. She graduated from UCLA with a double major in Italian and English and later earned a Masters in Counseling from CSU LA. A career in education saw her first as an ESL teacher, then as an assistant principal, and finally as a counselor at West Valley Occupational Center. She revered her students’ courage to return to school and was honored to be a part of their process.
Randy spent her last 10 years fighting 3 rare and challenging cancers. She rarely displayed the pain she was feeling, focusing instead on healing the pains outside herself. She passed with grace after a year of treatment against aggressive bladder cancer.
She is survived by her daughters, sister, stepson, nieces and nephews, cousins, and many more friends and family who miss her tremendously.
