Alma was raised in a large family of nine children with her parents Peter and Irene Hoffart at the helm. Her many stories of growing up on the farm will be fondly remembered. She graduated from Saint Angela’s Academy and went on to teachers college and started her teaching career in St. Walburg Sk. She met Arnold in Vanguard Sk in 1962 and they married August 24th 1963 . They started their family in Calgary AB then moved to Leader in 1970 and have been part of the community ever since.
Alma taught in Leader and area for several years and continued to substitute teach when she moved on to cook at the Western Senior Citizens Home (WSCH). She is still greatly remembered by many of her students as Mrs. “B”.
Her career at WSCH spanned 23 years and in that time she made so many lasting friendships and held the residents near to her heart. She was always making sure they received their meals just the way they liked. She was famous for her strudel, kucha, elephant ears and potato salad.
Alma was involved in many community groups and activities as her children grew up, but her focus was the Church and her Catholic faith. Her strong belief and love for the Lord carried her through life's ups and downs.
She was involved with the CWL and was on the Heritage Committee for Blumenfeld Church since 1983. She thoroughly enjoyed leading tours and the Annual Pilgrimage. She was also on the Leader Library Board since 2014.
Family was Alma’s life! She will be so dearly missed.
She was ready to greet the Lord and her faith gave her much comfort, as her courageous journey with cancer was reaching its final destination. Alma was so brave and gracious throughout with a reminder to “always be kind” as it doesn't cost a thing.
We love you and are so proud of you, such a wonderful wife and ever loving Mom.
