Rose Johnson Randall


Rose Johnson Randall, “Posey,” died peacefully on Sept. 24, 2002, at the age of 97.  Born in Baltimore, Maryland, in 1925 to Rose Haxall Johnson and Dr. Robert W. Johnson, she married Dr. Peter Randall in 1948.  In Chestnut Hill, they raised Deborah, Peter, Julia, and Susanna who, with their spouses, have added six grandchildren and two great grands.  Her greatest joy and legacy was the family she created with Peter, the times they traveled together and the sharing of their expertise in science and medicine to improve the lives of children and families around the world. A depth of compassion, wisdom, and graciousness endeared Posey to her friends and family. Services will be private.  In lieu of flowers, please plant a tree. For a full obituary, please see
