Alma was the sweetess, capable, thoughtful Boss I ever had. She did not let her position at Social Service go to her head. She treated each person with kindness and fairness. As a friend, there was none better! It has been my privilege to have been her friend and enjoy her with that precious smile she had.
To her family, May Peace be with you as you go through this loss. Love, Bonnie (Ulch) Shue, Lakeland Fl.

Bob and I were remembering today the times we stopped at Fran and Alma's house on our way to Lake City so Bob could use the "facilities" and Alma would give us something she had made-mainly the corn relish. Good memories all!

I will always remember the fun times we had with Aunt Alma and Uncle Fran camping. They both loved us kids so much and they were there to help often as we were growing up. It is comforting to know that they have been reunited in Heaven to live and love in eternity.

Will also remember Alma and her dedication at Social Services, also the good times we shared at the Murton Christmas parties with her and Fran. My heartfelt sympathy to Jeri, Roger and Families. Carol (McAulay) Barlage
