Alta was part of our Gang of Five during high school in Perry. We spent many hours together after school. Although we had not been able to see other much after I moved to California, we did keep in touch at Christmas. Sad to hear of her passing.

From Jane Eisele...

Condolences to your family. I worked with Alta at Hallmark Cards. I smile when I think of her. I am so thankful for the many things she taught me with work and life struggles. One comment stays with me today,” Jane, life is what you make of it”. Alta was a special lady and would not want your sorrow to be great. God bless you and keep you.
