I truly loved taking care of Ms. Alma. When my daughter or I would be feeding her, she would drift off to sleep. I’d day” wake up sleeping beauty, you got to take a bite” She would get the biggest grin on her face and giggle and Pat me on the hand, just like my mom use to do when I teased her. Love your family and you’re in my prayers! Linda Martindale

My very first memory of Alma, was her walking Mary Nell across the street to meet me. My mom and I were standing on the front porch of the old house in Tontitown. She was sweet and kind. Took care of her family and a lot of the time….me. The echo of childhood always includes her and her sweet daughter……
Rest In Peace (I will watch over you)

I have the fondest memories growing up of eating with my dad every Friday night at Alma’s Cafe when Mom was working. She was a wonderful lady.

Alma was like my second mom. She lived next door to us when I was growing up, and Gina and I were always hanging out together. She made the best spaghetti in the world and we ate at both of her restaurants all the time. She was a wonderful woman and my mom’s true friend, keeping in touch with her until she passed. My condolences and thoughts with all the family. RIP, Alma.
