1942 - 2017
Wilma Albert passed from this life July 10, 2017 at the home of her daughter, Becky Quillan, in Roseburg. Wilma said “goodbye” to her daughter, Becky and three sons, Tony, Ed, and Mike Albert.
Wilma was an enrolled member of the Cow Creek Band of the Umpqua Tribe on her mother’s side. Her father’s people were pioneers settling in the Rogue Valley in 1853. All said and done, it is accurate to say “She did it her way.”
Her four surviving grandchildren are Abigail Faye Albert, Shaun Albert, Steven Savage and Bobbie Quillan. Other survivors include two sisters, several nieces and nephews, and many cousins.
Preceding her in passing were her parents, Earl Wood and Faye VanNorman as well as a much loved grandson, Michael Anthony Albert.
Per Wilma’s request there will be no services. Arrangements under the care of Umpqua Valley Funeral Directors.
