Alma Faye Karnes of Klamath, Calif., went to be with her Lord on May 13, 2009. She was surrounded by her family at home.

She was born June 15, 1934, to Alfred and Ophia Pen­dleton in Nogo, Ark-ansas. She graduated from Dover High, Ark-ansas, in 1953 and shortly after moved with the family to Exeter, Calif., where she gained employment at Ray River Music store.
