Alma was a graduate of Middlesboro High School, KY and an alumna of Lincoln Memorial University, TN. She met her husband while they both worked on the Manhattan Project in Oak Ridge, TN. They were married in 1946 at the Chapel on the Hill in Oak Ridge where they lived during the early years of their marriage. Subsequently Frank, a US government official, was transferred to Washington, DC where they lived in Bethesda, MD and Great Falls, VA. As a young mother, she enjoyed raising her children, traveling, and playing bridge. She also had a passion for reading and belonged to several book clubs. She was a Red Cross “Gray Lady” volunteer at both Suburban Hospital and NIH in Bethesda. In the early 1970’s she was employed by NOAA in the accounting office. She went on to complete Real Estate Principles courses at the University of Maryland and received her GRI (Graduate Realtors Institute) and CRS (Certified Realtor Specialist) designations. She was an active realtor in the Washington metropolitan area and continued this career upon moving to Williamsburg, VA in 1988. Alma and Frank made their home in Kingsmill for several years before moving to Williamsburg Landing in 2011.

She was a member of the Great Falls Women’s Club, Great Falls, VA; of the Kingsmill Women’s Social Club; and of the NSDAR, Comte de Grasse chapter, Yorktown, VA.

Dear Jan,
I'm so sorry to hear you have lost your Mom. I have fond memories of her from our Ursuline days. Your mom was so gracious, polished, mannered, and always beautifully dressed---a classic lady. Her obituary in the Post was a lovely tribute to her many accomplishments. I'm holding all the Baranowskis in prayer.

Deepest sympathy,
Lynne (Christoffelsz) Rychlec
