I am so sorry to hear of Alberta’s passing. I have fond memories of her coming into my shop frequently. She would check the “Book Nook” for new arrivals and we would share our favorite stories and recommendations with each other. She was a wonderful woman with a bright soul. She will be missed dearly.

To the family: I had the privilege of meeting and knowing your mom at Luxe Fitness gym. Alberta and I first met in the early morning spin class. I will remember her most as a hard working, fit senior....I saw Alberta almost every day that I was in the gym, only because I wasn’t there every day, but I am sure that she was (smile)! Your mom always greeted me and everyone with her big beautiful smile. Her compassion and friendliness was hard to miss and was really infectious! I am so terribly sorry for your loss...Alberta will be greatly missed at Luxe Fitness....I will miss her smile...seeing her smile always made me grateful and made me want to be as fit and active as she was when I become a senior woman. I pray that sweet memories will sustain you as you mourn. I am so sorry for your loss!! Judy Campagnari
