Alma worked for 22 years at the Glenboro Hospital in the dietary department. She was active in the community, belonging to the Glenboro Ladies Legion Auxiliary and the Patricia Ladies Aid for many years until both were disbanded. She loved going to the Raystone Centre to play cards, 500 & Whist were her favorites.
Alma made the best buns and cinnamon buns around. The grandchildren enjoyed all the ice cream floats she made for them. She loved to have that “dash of salt in her beer”!
She was a very generous person and never had a bad word to say about anyone.
Alma enjoyed many trips with her sister Betty, especially the ones to Las Vegas. She loved to play Bingo and to go to the casino. Alma will be greatly missed by family & friends.
A private family graveside service will take place in the Glenboro Cemetery at a later date in the summer.
