Gisela R. Alm, 90, of Huntington, WV died March 4, 2020, in the comfort of her home. She lived a full and adventurous life, born October 12, 1929 in Erfurt, Thuringia, Germany to the late Elfriede Kruppa Roth and Paul E.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Harry C. Alm, 74, on November 25, 2000; as well as her two sons-in-law David Meador and Stephen Beveridge.
