Alma I. Best, 83, passed away on October 27, 2022. She was born on March 25, 1939, to James and Phedalia Trapp. Alma was born and raised in Belize. She brought her eight children to the United States and created a beautiful life. She was the most hardworking woman and was an amazing caretaker. Along with her eight children, she was also a foster mother; every child that entered her home became her heart and soul. She loved so fiercely and left the biggest impact on all that she crossed paths with. Alma put her family and friends above all. She had the absolute biggest heart and was full of grace and kindness. Her family will forever rave about her incredible cooking, and of course, her pina coladas, bun bread, and tamales. Alma was so special and will be missed greatly.
