July 28, 1931 to April 18, 2016

With deep sorrow we announce the death of Alma J. Mah. Predeceased by her husband of 52 years, Robinson “Robbie” Mah, she will be mourned by her two daughters, Corinne and Louanne (Alistair McKinnon). She also leaves behind sisters Edna Bowen and Sheila Mazzone and numerous in-laws, nieces and nephews on Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland. 

Alma was raised in the Comox Valley and as a youth excelled in basketball and mountain climbing. She and Rob met and married in Port Alberni, where they both taught school for decades and later operated a motel. They retired to Victoria where she enjoyed gardening, reading, and doing tai chi. 

Heartfelt appreciation goes to all the family, friends, and medical professionals who gave her support and comfort, especially the caring staff of Amica at Douglas House where she lived for the past eight years. No service by request. Flowers gratefully declined. Condolences may be offered at
