I could hardly believe she passed away until I read this. I have a great memory of working with Alberta in Mercer by the court house. It was a very little place that served a simple lunch. We laughed and had so much fun with the customers. Alberta was quite the out-going personality and many looked forward to seeing her. She always made everyone feel important including me. That short time I worked with her I have fun memories. I know many will miss her. The ones she left behind will wonder how they will live without her. May God comfort them all and my dear sympathy for them all

She was a great neighbor and friend. She loved the freedom of borrowing a car when she needed. She called and checked on Pete daily. We miss you already. God bless the family. Darren call if you need anything.

My deepest sympathy to all of you. I just loved Bert. She would stop and see me at Jack’s. Play the machines or just chat. She loved her family fiercely.
