Alma had a long and fulfilling career as a Home Economics teacher in the Chartiers Valley School District where she will be fondly remembered as Mrs. P. Alma loved sewing, knitting, crocheting, puzzles, reading and volunteering at Bridgeville Public Library and was an avid volunteer for many other meaningful causes. She was an active member at Holy Child and St. Barbara Parishes where she sang in the choir. Alma was a devoted fan of all Pittsburgh sports teams and enjoyed traveling to see the world and, especially, to visit family.

Alma was my parents neighbor and my confirmation sponsor. She had such a beautiful smile and joyful spirit. I will always remember the fun treats she baked for us every holiday. And how she took the time to teach my sisters and I how to sew. Prayers for Tom and the rest of her family. She will be greatly missed!

Alma was always so giving. We were neighbors for many years and there was always a yummy baked treat for every holiday. She helped my girls with knitting and sewing and was in charge of "porch parties" when Leanna came to visit. She was truly a lovely person and we will miss her. Terri Aquilina and family

She was a great friend and colleague at Chartiers Valley HS. Alma guided me through the sewing of costumes for some of my musicals and plays that I directed at the high school. She will be missed.
