I am only just now learning of Alma’s passing. During my short time at Saint Luke’s, Alma was one of my favorite visitors. We had some wonderful conversations and I was always happy to see her when she stopped by. She was a lovely woman and having met her was truly my pleasure – I will remember her fondly. Rest easy Alma!

Curtis, Shirley and family,

So sorry for your loss.It was a pleasure having known your mother. My thoughts are with you at this time.

Sorry to hear of Alma’s passing. She was a lovely lady. My thoughts are with you at this time.

I’m shocked to here about ”Mudder”, she was a lovely woman. A devoted wife. She always offered a quiet place to sit to take a break (and hide for 5 minutes), her candy dish was always full, she was never short of the good knitted dish cloths. I know Ralph is ecstatic to see her, even though everyone else is saddened to lose her. I really enjoyed their company. I’m sorry for your loss! She will be greatly missed!

Shirley and Curtis. Deepest sympathy on the passing of your much loved Mother. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Curt, Shirley and family
It was an honour and pleasure to have met and cared for your family members. Alma will be fondly remembered for her generosity (sharing her dolphin plants and knit creations with us) and smiling eyes.
She will be missed

So sorry for your loss.Your mother was a wonderful woman. I’m sure she will be missed.

Curt, Shirley and Family,
Condolences on your loss. Alma was a warm, kind and welcoming heart. There are many happy memories of trips to the Burin, having a stiff swallie with your folks, and of course, Alma’s famous pan fried cod – absolutely the best. Not to mention her plastic canvas and knitting! She was a gem and will be truly missed. Sending love and hugs your way.

To the Bonnell family please accept our most deepest sympathys at the loss of your mom
