In 1978 Alma and Lee moved from El Paso, where they had lived several years, to Stephenville, where she made her home until Lee passed away on September 18, 1997. She married Charles Brown in 2012. Alma was an accomplished business woman. She loved to cook, sew; in creating formal gowns and wedding dresses. She not only loved her family, but her church family, as well, as an active member at Hillcrest Church of Christ. She spent the latter days of her life taking care of others. She always put God first in her life.

Survivors include her husband, Charles Brown; daughters, Patricia and husband Scooter Tankersley, Rebecca and husband Tim Morton, Sandy and husband Keith Bailey; son, Lee and wife Jennifer Pope; grandchildren, Patrick Salyer, Vince and wife Maya Schilb, Lauren Pope, Erica Tankersley, Wayne Pope, Sarah Morton and Joshua Morton; great grandchildren, Mathew Epley, Lexi Muirheid, Eric Schilb, Jacob Schilb, and Vivienne Schilb

Besides her parents, and her first husband, Lee Pope, Alma was also preceded in death by a great grandchild, baby Salyer.
