Alma Harmer

February 7, 1929 — November 26, 2023

Our beloved Mother and Grandmother, Alma Harmer. Passed away November 26, 2023 at age 94.


She is predeceased by her husband Richard and sister Beryl (Rudy) Reinprecht. Survived by children Jan (Rich) Winchell, Patti Harmer and Linda Dent; grandchildren Chad (Lauren) Winchell, Heather (Alex) Cormier, Todd (Michelle) Winchell, Alex and Steve Dent; great grandchild Ella Winchell; sisters Lura Rouse, and Duretta Schneider as well as many special friends, nieces and nephews.


Alma was a graduate from the Rochester Institute of Technology. She started her career working as a Chemical Secretary for Eastman Kodak Company, where she met her husband of 60 years. Once married she was devoted to raising her family. Through-out her life, Alma was an avid bridge player, becoming a life master in the American Contract Bridge League and traveled to all 50 states to play bridge. Alma shared her love of bridge by teaching others both here in the Rochester area and while wintering in Tucson, AZ. The last seven years was spent playing bridge with her daughter Jan as her partner. Alma's strong faith kept her involved in many aspects of the Methodist church and in doing missions work at McCurdy School, in Espanola, NM.


We all cherish how her life focused on faith, family and friends.
