cosmetology license and she loved working with people and being creative

peach cobbler in the world. Alma was a loving mother to not only her own
children but many others. She was called mom by many because she had a
heart of gold. Her home was always open with her love and kindness which will truly be missed.

Alma was a woman of God who accepted the Lord as her personal Savior at
an early age. She was a faithful daughter, family member and friend.
Whatever she did, she did it whole-heartedly. She would never leave a job
half done. She stood steadfast in her faith and demonstrated the fortitude
to carry on despite the circumstances She was a, usher, choir member, pastor’s aide throughout her life.

heaven. Her laughter and quick wit, hugs, and kisses will no longer be a
part of our day-to-day reality. However, the legacy of her love and happy memories will forever linger in our hearts.

cherish her memories are her son, William B (Tammy) Mitchell, Daughter
Michelle R (Augusta) Newson, Grand Children Charles P (Cheree)Murria,

you have been faithful over a few things,

I will make you a ruler over many things.

Enter the joy of your Lord.
