She was born Alma Cox on 3/24/01 at Welch, OK. As young girls, she & her sister Beulah saw two pretty ladies. One of the lady's names was Elnora which Alma took as her middle name. Beulah took the other lady's name for her middle name. So Alma's children & grandchildren still know her name as: Alma Elnora.
She grew to 5' 2" tall with dark hair & warm brown eyes – a beautiful woman. She married the love of her life, Ora B. LeForce, on 12/22/1919. They had twelve children, all born & raised in Craig County, OK.
Alma was a quiet, reserved woman with a warmth & concern for all. She would never turn a "hobo" away from her door without first filling a plate with food for him to take to a shade tree & eat before he continued on his way.
She somehow got through it all…like a run away team pulling a wagon with her children in it. Or the time little Gracie fell out of the wagon & the wagon wheel ran over her. After seeing that Gracie was alright, she laughed when Gracie excitedly stated "Oh Mommy, my heart's beating".
A devoted wife & mother, she maintained her home well, whistling or singing gospel songs as she worked. Even though she spent the last ten years of her life in sickness, I believe it can be said: she had a full & happy life. She died 9/22/1952 in a Vinita, OK hospital. She is buried in the Fairview Cemetery at Vinita, OK.
