In addition to working as a hat model at Eastern Columbia Department Store, she once held a job at Ball Brothers Glass Company in California, but her most rewarding career was as housewife, mother and grandma to her loving family.

She left the workforce to wed Harry C. Kohli and have three children, Harry, Elizabeth and Margaret. After divorcing Harry, she found her true love, Howard Lyle "Bud" Scott. In 1947, she married Bud; together they adopted and raised their grandson, Lyle H. Scott. Alma and Bud were together until his death in 1985.

Alma was known as a loving and caring woman whose table always had room for one more. A lover of crosswords, loyal to game shows, an aficionado of NASCAR, member of First Southern Baptist Church and a prayer warrior for family, she is survived by two sons and two daughters and numerous surrogate children in addition to five grandsons, four granddaughters, 13 great-grandsons, five great-granddaughters, five great-great-grandsons, two great-great-granddaughters and one brother.

All said farewell to Alma as she passed to be with her Lord on Feb. 8, 2007. She will be greatly missed.
