Alma Benton-Wittler was a devoted member of University United Methodist Church, Lake Charles, for many years. She was a member of “her church”, as she told everyone she knew and had just met, Grangeville Baptist Church, Pine Grove, LA. She deeply loved and appreciated her Pastor, Mike Cotton Sr. and his precious wife, Bonita. She also sends her heart warming prayers and thank yous to all the members of “her church”.
A special thank you to Ochsner Medical Center, all of her doctors, who she appreciated and thought the world of. Their care and concern for her, and myself (daughter), Linda was extraordinary. We have been so blessed.
Her cremation will be through Seale Funeral Home, Denham Springs, LA.
