Alma was a wonderful lady who was always welcoming and friendly. I enjoyed our little chats, whether it was in the grocery store or in her apartment when I delivered her groceries. She was quick to point out what we were doing wrong and what we did right. She was definitely not afraid to voice her opinion. I admired her tenacity, her refusing to let age slow her down. She will be missed.

Alma was grand lady with lots of energy and a good person to talk to and a great example of how to live senior years with grace, dignity and a willingness to do activities as long as she was able. To a life well lived.
