Alma was called home on June 4th, 2022 at approximately 4:25 pm at North Florida Regional Hospital in Gainesville, Florida.
As Alma aged, her health began to decline. She became a homebody. While at home she spent the majority of her time watching the Andy Griffin Show, listening to The Williams Brothers, Rance Allen and Silent Night by The Temptations on her stereo. She loved being in the presence of her children, grand-children as well as her great-grandchildren. They brought her so much joy. Before her illness, you would always find her, her husband Roy (The Driver) and 3 of her siblings who all precede her in death (Rosetta, Emma and Margaret) together somewhere shopping, laughing, joking and just having a good time. She loved to shop whether it be a yard sale, garage sale, goodwill and anything else in between. Alma had a caring and giving spirit. If she saw a need, she was there to help whether you wanted the assistance or not. She had her own business offering childcare services. She enjoyed having and being around the children.
