homes in Hollywood Beach, Florida and Northern Kentucky.
Of the different roles Alma played in life, ‘Mamaw’ was one which gave her much joy, you could find her on the floor playing games, on the swingset or singing songs with made-up words with her grandchildren & later her great-grandchildren. She loved to cook and
you never entered her home without her setting out a spread of food or her many candy dishes filled. As a member of First Baptist Church in Ludlow, Alma was deeply rooted in her faith. This included many years of volunteerism within the church as well as engagement in her beloved Circle Group.
