Alma

Yesterday, neighbor Alma Kyllander passed away. She and her husband Art lived across the field from the nursery for most of the past 80 years. Alma was my father's teacher in the one-room school. Later, she came to work for Grandpa at the nursery. She stayed on when Mom and Dad took over, eventually becoming the manager of the greenhouse portion of the business for several years before she retired.
