Alma was born November 20, 1924 in Sioux City, IA to Charles & Bertha (Owen) Coury. She grew up and attended Immaculate Conception grade school and later graduated from East High School in 1942. After graduation she went to work at Corn Belt Supply until they closed and then at St. Luke’s Hospital until retiring. Alma was a faithful and loyal employee.

She was a lifelong member of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church. Alma's faith was very important to her. She volunteered at church every Wednesday, working on the scrip program for many years. The faith and loyalty she showed at church flowed over into every aspect of her life.

Alma was a New York Yankees baseball fan, even though the rest of the family were Cubs fans, she resisted their many attempts to convert her over and remained an avid Yankee’s fan. She also loved the Iowa Hawkeyes. Alma enjoyed playing cards, Yahtzee and the occasional trip to the casino.

Aunt Alma, also known as Double A, Aunt Al or Aunt Almaza was treasured by her nieces, nephews and their families. She was dearly loved and will be missed by all.

Survivors include her 3 nephews, George (Cindy) Rehan of Sioux City, Robert (Mary) Rehan of Sioux City, Tom Coury of Wellington, KS; 5 nieces, Renee Coury of Omaha, NE, Susie (John) Broberg of Overland Park, KS, Liz (Steve) Bauer of Denver, CO, Kathleen Barrett of Pomona, CA, and Noreen Eskildsen of Sioux City

Alma was preceded in death by her parents; sister, Lourice Rehan; 3 brothers, Ernest, Fred, and Elias Coury; 2 nephews, Bob Coury and Dennis Cutting; and 2 nieces, Sandy Rehan and Mary Cain.
