Alma was born February 5, 1917 in Dauphin, Manitoba and died on September 5, 2021 in Lacombe, Alberta at the age of 104 years and 7 months. She was predeceased by her parents Luke and Martha Blabey and by her four brothers and six sisters.
Alma grew up on a Manitoba farm. On September 10, 1942 she married Alex McCreery, a logger whose occupation took them to British Columbia. Together they had seven children: Carl (Leona), Ike (Valerie), Marty Kandt (Randy), Danny (Linda), David (Bonnie), Loma Boyd (Bruce), and Bennie who passed away at the young age of 5 years. After Alex’s death, Alma married Oscar Reimche (1968) and became stepmother to Roger (Lindsey), Wayne (Beckie), and Linda Hagen (Calvin). Alma was blessed with numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and a great-great-grandchild.
Alma was an avid reader and knitter. She loved to play the piano at her local church and taught lessons for many years. She was active in Women’s Christian Temperance Union and eventually served on the executive committee. She worked in various offices to supplement the family income.
Alma was predeceased by Oscar (2009), Danny (2016), Linda (2018), and Carl (2021). She is lovingly remembered by all her remaining children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and a great-great-grandchild; as well as extended family, numerous nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends.
