[WWII “War Mother's Flag”] They had 4 sons serve in WWII. Relatives from that period remember King Oran Randall's home having a “War Mother's Flag” with four stars in a window. During WWII, the mother's of children serving the military were encouraged to place a “War Mother's Flag” in her window. A blue star represented each service member who was alive, but in harms way (the mothers were honored as being “Blue Star Mothers”). A gold star meant that the service member had been killed (the mothers were respected as “Gold Star Mothers”). For more info., visit: http://www.bluestarmothers.org/service-flag

Roberta was a sickly woman who was remembered as “always being in bed” (relatives speculate that she may have been a hypochondriac). She died on Aug. 8, 1955 (at 68 years old).

Exactly 3 months later, King Oran Randall, Sr. died on November 8, 1955 (at 72 years old).

King Oran Randall, Sr. and Mattie Roberta Tyler Randall were buried beside each other at “Shoal Creek Baptist Church Cemetery”, Hart County, Georgia (Find A Grave Memorial# 34398260).11)
