Alma grew up in Seattle and lived in the Green Lake area. She graduated from Broadway High School and went on to earn her Associates Degree. She married Robert W. Armstrong in 1948 and they were married 61 years, until his death in 2009.

Alma retired from Wells Fargo Bank and enjoyed her retirement by traveling to Hawaii, Europe, Scandinavia and Norway, where both her parents immigrated from. She worked at several local banks in branch operations and served as a member at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church of the Deaf and Mothers Club. She, also, was a proud Gold Star Mother, honoring her son, Peder Armstrong, who passed away in the Viet Nam War. She is survived by her daughter, Deborah (Quinn) Ferguson.

A private family graveside service was held at Alma's final place of rest at Acacia Memorial Park, Seattle, WA.

Thank you to the wonderful staff at The Norse Home who made Alma's last five years so comfortable. Their compassionate care giving will always be deeply appreciated.
