Alma was a treasured friend. I so enjoyed my visits where we would share stories of siblings, grandchildren, other family members, church friends and flowers. She was a great listener and appreciated the good in people. Alma had a giving heart. I will miss her more than words can tell. The heavens have received another angel. Good bye, dear friend. Love, Mary Jane

My favorite memories of Granda as a kid were riding in her red wagon, eating ice cream, and drinking her homemade grape juice. As I got older, I enjoyed talking on the phone with her, going to Aldi grocery store with her, and learning from her how to be a good parent. Love you forever Granda!
