Alma farmed with her husband for twenty years near Gladbrook. She was employed at Dick's Restaurant in Toledo for three years and retired and moved to Marshalltown in 1967. Alma was a blue ribbon homemaker. She took pride in her appearance and her family's. She was very particular and wanted things done a certain way. Alma was a very talented baker, especially kolaches and rolickys. She had a green thumb and could make anything grow. Later in life, Alma took up painting and was a very talented artist.
