This Obituary Has One Condolence

  1. We just learned of Alma’s passing today. I and my siblings grew up living across the street from the “Adamses” and even had her as a teacher in high school. She was a close friend of our mother’s, Zelda Dean, until her own passing in 2012. She was a great friend, neighbor and teacher. We are saddened by her loss.
