Alma worked at many different occupations during her life, she was an Avon Representative, Dietitian at Mission Hill Hospital in Shawnee, Oklahoma, a pipeline laborer and a homemaker.

After living in Maud, Oklahoma for several years, her family moved to Shawnee, Oklahoma where she like to hangout at St. Gregory’s, but she lived most of her adult life in Pink, Oklahoma. Alma loved crocheting, yodeling, singing, dancing, crossword puzzles and collecting cookie jars, stamps, matchbooks and postcards. She was also a Cub Scout den mother while living in Maud, Oklahoma. The family remembers when she killed 3 peach trees while cutting switches off them. She was really good at shooting her shotgun. She would step out on the back porch of her house and holler when it was time to eat, and all the kids could always hear her anywhere they were on the 40 acres where they lived.
