Cornett, Randi A (Falk, Daley, Strusinski) age 72 of Wayzata passed away on July 20, 2019 after a courageous fight to live. Randi was a wonderful mother, friend, sister, wife and daughter. She loved to teach others, deeply enjoyed nature and was a gifted athlete – she especially excelled at swimming and, as a youth, was recruited for Olympic training. Randi found joy in giving to/helping friends, family & strangers alike, imparting wisdom and spending time with her large family. She was a dedicated employee and retired from Medtronic. On August 7th, 2014 she was given the gift of new lungs and worked tirelessly thereafter to be well. Our Mother was a true warrior. Always go forward and never turn back.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Erling & Ruth Falk; sister, Karen Belinsky; brother, Kevin Falk; spouse, Mike Strusinski; and spouse, Paul Cornett. She is survived by Pat Daley, her adoring children, Kevin (Amy) Daley and Flannery Daley; loving grandchildren, Josh Schectman, McNamara Daley and Randi Ruth Daley; sisters, Kristi Schuppert, Reidun Atkinson and Kaja MacDonnell; brother, Thor Falk; and many cousins, nieces, nephews and special friends.
