Post a Condolence

We will miss Alma dearly. My wife, Amelia, who passed away years ago, were best of friends, visiting Alma & Alice at her house on Harrison Street. It’s hard to imagine that my wife and Alma have passed, but I know that they are reunited in Heaven and talking about the good times they have. To live to be a 103, wow, what a life!

As a child, I had the pleasure and privilege of growing up with all of Great Aunt Alma’s brothers and sisters on the family farm which is now Alpaca Pines on Beaverton Rd, Poplar Grove. So many memories shared, especially the annual Christmas Eve dinner and gift exchange. Great Aunt Alma is now reunited with her parents and all her siblings. Blessings to the entire Sjostrom family as we celebrate her life.
