Walt and I were neighbors from Beaconshire Road and cherished our relationship with Alma and Buddy; many wonderful memories of her good nature and optimistic outlook on many things; we saw her accomplishments such as her devotion to her family and friends, work ethic and her many talents and skills in any project she tackled.. She never was idle in body or mind and we respected
her opinions, input and feedback the last 25 years.

Our deepest sympathy,
Mercedes, Walt & Pauline

Grandma was the most loving and caring person with the biggest of hearts. She loved to give us calendars every year for Christmas which we enjoyed receiving. For our birthdays she always had a cake and card for us. I will miss her dearly.

Loving and merciful God,
we entrust our grandmother to your mercy.
You loved her greatly in this life;
now that she is freed from all its cares,
give her happiness and peace for ever.
The old order has passed away;
welcome her now into paradise
where there will be no more sorrow,
No more weeping or pain,
but only peace and joy
with Jesus, your Son,
and the Holy Spirit
for ever and ever.
