She was a member of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Lawrence, KS, and later Immanuel Lutheran Church, Junction City, KS and Ascension Lutheran Church in Wichita, KS. After retirement, she moved near her daughter in Chapman, KS where she helped to raise and “spoil” grandkids, great-grandkids, and great-great-grandkids! Alberta, affectionately known as “Grandma Bert” was a woman of few vices, though she did enjoy shopping and shoes and was definitely one of the most stylish and best-dressed grandmas around. She was a model of love and faith and her generosity touched the lives of many. Her legacy lives on in her children; Nancy (Jim), Debra (Jim), Judy, Mike (Linda), and Steve; 11 grandchildren; Tiffany, Kelsie, Jennifer, Sara, Brent, Troy, Brady, Erin, Eddie, Elizabeth and Rebekah; 21 great-grandchildren; 5 great-great-grandchildren; a sister, Betty; and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.
