Alma was woman of many talents, most brought forth by sheer determination. In Saskatchewan where she was born and raised, she taught school in a 2 room schoolhouse where she met her future husband John. Alma never did anything halfway, from dance recital costume design to getting a golf course built when she took up the sport in Davidson, SK where they lived for 16 years.
When the family moved to Campbell River she became active in the Curling Club and the Ladies Golf Club, and served as president of both. She was immensely proud of her family, her multitude of trophies, and her creative endeavours.
Due to 2 new great-grandbabies due soon, a service will be held at a later date when all can attend. In lieu of flowers please send donations to the Canadian Cancer Society.
