Family Comments: Alberta will be remembered by everyone that ever entered her home by never leaving without something or being fed. She lived 40-plus years on Gattin Road. Alberta was known as “Sweet Grandma” to all her grandkids and was happy with quick wit and sense of humor. Alberta always treated her sons and daughter-in-laws as if they were her own children and will leave behind her special dog, Angel Baby “PePe.” Alberta was also a cancer survivor.
