Alma Whiteman

January 14, 1927September 9, 2021

Alma Olema (Pitts) Whiteman, age 94 of Maysville, KY went home to be with the Lord on Thursday, September 9th, 2021 at her residence. She was born January 14th, 1927 in Mt Sterling, KY to parents, Eunice Ballard and Robert Herman Pitts.

She was married to William Thomas Whiteman for 33 years. She was a homemaker and mom to 12 children. She loved to crochet, going to yard sales and spending time with her family. The union of her and Tom has produced 112 decedents.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; her son, Harold Joseph Whiteman; her daughters, Brenda Sue Buder (Whiteman) and Alberta Marie Burgher (Whiteman); 3 grandsons Jon, Joey and Andy McCoy; one great granddaughter, Kennedie Adkins, and 2 grandbaby Smith boys.

She is survived by 6 sons, James McCoy of Hamilton, OH, William (Linda) Whiteman, Warren (Teresa) Whiteman, Morton (Missy) Whiteman, Donald Whiteman, and Tommy Whiteman all of Franklin, OH; and by 3 daughters, Shirley (Whiteman) Thompson of Hunter, OH, Patricia Whiteman of Franklin, OH and Alma (Whiteman) Bess of Maysville, KY; 27 grandchildren; 57 great grandchildren and 12 great great grandchildren.

She always had a story to tell, a song to sing, a laugh in her heart and a smile on her face. She was very much loved by her family and all who knew her. She will be greatly missed but will forever be in our hearts. It gives us great comfort to know she is with her loved ones that went on before her, telling her stories, singing an old song and in the hands of our loving God.
