My Son and I always watched the show, she was one of the main reasons. We just loved how she was involved with the business, and her sense of humour was priceless. She reminded me of my Mom who has passed. Her Love and dedication towards her family, and the work she did raising her Children. You could just tell how proud she was of every single one of them. They are all her Favourites, that was very evident watching the TV show.

So sorry for your loss, I’m sure she’s watching over you.

I was lucky enough to meet her at the Hingham Wahlburgers one day while having lunch with my two nephews, one in the seminary, who was ordained last August and one who was on leave from the Air Force. When she came by our table I told her about them and she filled up with tears. She thanked them both and said she would pray for them. She was quite the caring woman! I’m sure she was welcomed into heaven! Prayers to the Wahlberg family!

I can't believe how one person can light up the room with just her smile. That was Alma. She was truly amazing and so beautiful. I hope more people could be like her. She filled us with grace and peace. And made us laugh that is the best of all. Laughter is what makes the world go around . God bless to all the Wahlbergs and family. Lets live on in the honor of Alma.

This woman literally cracked me up and had me in stitches every time I saw her on the show. I can’t tell you how many times I made her recipe of American chop Suey to the pleasure of so many people. The world is a little less happy without Alma here.

I was so sad to hear of your passing.

Thank you for making me smile with your loving sense of humor during Wahlburgers.

You are not loved just because you raised some amazing kids, but because of the person you were.

You came from nothing and had the strength to overcome and find success despite your early shortcomings. Your smile was infectious.

Heaven gained another angel. May God Bless your family thru this difficult time.

Her love for her family and friends was apparent in all she did. My mother was diagnosed with dementia a little over 3 years ago. Losing her a little at a time is heartbreaking. I know your Mom is free from any pain or suffering now. God has her in the beautiful place He has prepared for her in Heaven. God bless and keep you all

Alma has an amazing legacy that she will leave behind. She was an amazing role model to her children, her grandchildren and, once the family show started, the world! Humble, funny, loving, but strong! The family, their love for each other, charity, commitment, hard work and humility all stem from their mother. She will be very loved and very missed, always.

What a beautiful, incredible, strong, giving and loving woman the world has lost. My heart goes out to everyone that knew her and especially to her family. She reminded me so much my mother who I lost in 2009 to cancer, and just by watching her on tv made me feel like I had my mom again. I cherish every episode of wahlbugers for that and I can't thankyou enough for making that tv show for so long. Thankyou for sharing your lives with us and I hope your family and friends will be at peace one day soon. Thankyou for reading this and may God bless you and your family forever. ❤❤
