My deepest condolences to Dave and Tammy, and all family, as they grieve the loss of this wonderful woman. Alberta was a joy to know and I will always remember her for her love of the doggies and for putting puzzles together that were missing a few pieces because of those doggies. She will be missed. And remembered always.

I met Alberta when I was 16. My current husband was a regular in thier home and treated as a member of the family. When Sid took me to the Stephens home, I was treated as no less. I remember her welcoming smile. Even years later she treated me as no less. The sweet lady worried about me and Sid both. She has offered words of encouragement. She gave me a shoulder to lean on. She shared a mutual faith in Christ. It is almost like losing my own mother all over again. We feel such a loss over her leaving.
