Alma graduated from Nazareth High School, and just enjoyed her 75th reunion! She met her husband at a dance hall and they were later married at the Immaculate Conception Church.
Feeding family & friends were very important to her and Alma loved babies, any baby was special to her. Her love of knitting and crocheting were helpful here.
Alma enjoyed classical piano and 40's dance music, Fiddler on the Roof and Gone With the Wind. Her favorite things to watch on TV the were Westminster Dog Show & Figure Skating.
Alma never looked her age, she was also very young at heart. She was independent and embraced change, remaining resilient even after her husband Nicholas died. Alma was a loving, compassionate, friendly and a generous person. She was loved and will be missed.
