Alma Marie Ewart
Alma died at her home in a bed in her sunroom after asking her caretaker,
Bernice to open the blinds so she could see the flowers in her garden. She was
wearing her glasses and reading the paper. The last words she spoke were to
Bernice to say, "Thank you," for opening the blinds. I was in West Helena at
the home of her son, Fred, when the call came that she had died. Mother,
Stefanie and I were preparing to go visit her. We went on to her house and
stayed with Laura, Fred, Ann, Betty and Tom until the hearse from the funeral
home arrived. Aunt Alma looked very peaceful. On Monday, May 29, 1995 at 3:00
pm a graveside service was held at Maple Hill Cem. in Helena, AR. Following
this brief service everyone went to the West Helena Baptist Church of which she
was a charter member and where she had been the church treasurer for fifty
years. There a memorial service was held with granddaughters Susan Faust,
and Sara Jane Belches read passages of scripture. Granddaughter Laura Anne
Deitz read remembrances that had been collected from her family ending with one
by her seven year-old great granddaughter, Katherine Graddy, who said, "She was
nice." That summed up all of our feelings. Following the service there was
a small reception in the foyer of the church with refreshments prepared by
ladies of the church and friends of the family. Everyone who spoke of her
remarked on her great intelligence and the fact that they had never heard her
speak an unkind work about anyone. She was an extremely prolific writer
