Alberta is preceded in death

remembered as a loving wife
to Henry,
a loving mother of four rotten
boys (she had hoped for a
daughter out the four!) and a
caring grandmother and great
grandmother. She loved
living near the bay and loved
spending time with her
Alameda friends. She was a
dedicated choir member of
Alameda Christian Reformed
Church and a strong
supporter of Alameda
Christian School. She and

together worldwide. They
visited Hawaii, Europe, and
traveled on many cruises and
RV trips together. She will be
sorely missed.
