Alma Betty (Canova) Wilbur, of Middleborough, passed away peacefully on Monday, May 4, 2020, at the Hannah B.G. Shaw Home in Middleborough, at the age of 89.
Cherished wife of the late Kenneth L. Wilbur and daughter of the late Victoria and Pietro Canova, she is survived by her sister, four children, nine grandchildren, and ten great-grandchildren.
Alma was a devoted mother and homemaker who at midlife earned a degree from Bridgewater State College and embarked on a career in teaching. She taught first grade for twenty years in the Middleborough school system, retiring in 1992 to care for her husband.
Alma had a quiet and gentle nature but often exhibited a lively wit and dry sense of humor that those around her enjoyed with a warm appreciation. During her long life, she enjoyed reading, playing cards with family, travel, and lively conversation.
Visiting Hours: Due to the pandemic, a Memorial Service will be celebrated at the convenience of the family.
