Alma was a single devoted mother who lived her life as a strong devoted person to her family and was full of life. She was employed with the Edinburg Police Department until her retirement after working there for over 25 years. She was a member of Mujeres Unidas, MADD, Edinburg Crime Stoppers, Inc., nonprofit organization “Una Mano”, RGV – Law Dogs, and owner of Balloons by Am-Bee. Alma helped many people throughout her life and was always there to lend a helping hand, but her greatest joy was spending her time with her children, grandchildren, and family. She will truly be missed by her family and all those whose lives she touched.
" Alma's life cannot be summed up in many words but is best known in the hearts of her loved ones. "
