Ms. Alma Fields

February 25, 1941 ~ August 23, 2023 (age 82) 82 Years Old


Mrs. Alma Fields, daughter of the late Joseph Fields and Annie James Fields, was born on February 25, 1941, in the Ritter community of Walterboro, South Carolina.  Like many in the area, she grew up in a home where the values of life were based on family, church, education, and community. These values and lessons would keep her well rounded and be a basis for her continued success in life.  Educated in the public schools of the area, Alma graduated from Colleton Training School. 

Mother Alma possessed a desire to fulfill and pursue many different occupational opportunities, and relocated to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. For the next forty plus years of her life, she would continue being faithful in her service and employment until her retirement.  All while balancing her career, community, family, and ministry. After retirement she knew that life would bring about some changes. Alma decided to move back South and began to take care of her beloved Sister, Carrie, until her passing in 2003.  

Her spiritual pursuits in life, began with a desire to strengthen her relationship with Christ. At an early age, she became a member of the Cumberland United Methodist Church. Even as she was in Philadelphia, she worked through and with several ministries to continue her walk with God. As she returned to South Carolina, she reunited with her home church and remained faithful and a supportive member of the church, until her health would no longer allow her to. 

During the early morning hours of Wednesday: August 23, 2023; Alma answered her master’s call and the trumpet sounded.  She folder up her earthly cart, became lesser in body and more in Spirit and heard, “Come Home thy Good and faithful servant, Come Home and Rest!” Along with her parents, Alma is preceded in death by her siblings: Jonathan Fields, Lee Burgess (Helen) Fields, Sr., Anderson (Janie B) Fields, Furman Fields, Leviticus Fields, Otherine Frazier and Luechriser (Samuel) Smith.
