Alma was part of our Overseas Wives family here in Maine for many years and we would often enjoy the delicious Norwegian sweets she would bring to our get-togethers. She was unassuming and had strength of character. We really missed her when she moved away but I always enjoyed the telephone conversations we had to stay in touch. Heartfelt condolences to her lovely family. You are all in our thoughts during this sad and difficult time. Liz Marshall

Ronnie and I were so sorry to hear your sad words that your mother had pass away. You have now joined the families that have lost a Father, Mother and Brother. You will now find it so difficult to enter that date in your family file, it will be painful. Your Mom was the last spouse of you dad’s generation of McMahon’s. My Uncle Mike sure picked a lovely lady for a wife. We are sure they are back together again. Jim and Ronnie
