Obituary for Alma B Person

Mrs. Alma Blanche Person, daughter of the late Claude and Katie Mae Silver was born on Friday, June IO, 1932 in Halifax County.

She peacefully departed this earthly life on May 7, 2019, at Long Island Jewish Hospital in Long Island, New York. What a reunion, as she joined her precious family members.

Alma was a loving mother and a caregiver to many. She worked at the New York City Board of Education as a Chef for many years, retiring to take care of her late husband full time.

Over these past years, she has been the strength and glue of her family. Always there to provide love, support, a listening ear, and an open heart. She was faithful in keeping in touch with family and friends. She checked in on them up to the end, especially her sister Ruby Alston and her cousin Dorothy Kearney which she spoke with every night like clockwork.

She will be missed by many. She married her sweetheart Lewis Person in May 1954 and from this union seven children were born. She was preceded in death by her husband Lewis Person, her sons Louis Edward Person (Tubbs) and Christopher Person.

She leaves to cherish fond memories, her children: Claude, Melvin, and Gloria of the home; Phyllis and Evelyn of Queens, New York. Four siblings: Ruby Alston (Douglas), Andrew Silver (Betty), Nancy Pulley (Russell) and Lusella Hargrove (Otis) all of North Carolina. Six grandchildren: James Jr., Omar, Brittnay, Lawrence, Ieisha, and Lamarr. Ten great-grandchildren: Nashea, Brandon, Christopher, Lauren, Caleb, Norah, Lana, Andrew, Amora, and Carter. Two brothers-in-law, one sister-in-law, a host of nieces, nephews and other family and friends.
