For as long as I can remember, Alma was a part of my life. She was a friend to my mother and father in my childhood and a co-worker and friend to me as an adult. Alma was a bright spot in a sometimes gray world. She will be missed so much by so many. May your memories bring you peace and happiness and may Alma find the health and peace she so deserved. Sending love.

I had the pleasure to work with such a wonderful person. Alma’s smile and laughter would make me smile no matter what happen to me. My prayer and condolences go out her family.

Alma was the sweetheart of the State Farm claims office–no doubt about it! Her laughter would light up the room. I always smiled when I heard her voice on the phone, and still smile each time I think of her. Her State Farm family ALL adored her. My Steve used to take her a milkshake each time he went to the Dairy Queen, and she went on and on about how thoughtful and generous he was–until she learned that he had a “buy one-get one free” card! More giggles!!! Rest peacefully, sweet Alma. You are missed so much already…….Our sympathy to you, Billie, and LeeAnn.

Billie and Leann, Please accept my sincere condolence for the loss of your mother and grandmother. Please know we are all feeling the loss of such a wonderful person. Her infectious smile and laugh, her inner beauty as well as her outer beauty will be missed by so many. She has been an inspiration to all who knew her, always trying to be the best she could all the while dealing with all the obstacles that that was placed before her. Have comfort in knowing she is in heaven united with her family and friends that have gone before her and that those of us remaining will have another beautiful angle watching over us. Rest In Peace Aunt Alma. (Great aunt).

I am honored to have worked with Alma. When asked, “who do you respect the most”?, Alma is at the top of the list. The two things I will always remember are the fortitude she exhibited when she returned to work and the Friday afternoon giggle fests. The choir of angels just got better.
My sincere condolences to you, Billie, and your family.
