Obituary for Alma Tharp (Willey)

Alma Rosie Tharp, 81, a 51 year Wenatchee resident, passed away on Thursday November 16, 2017, at Cashmere Convalescent Center after extended health issues. She was born on October 2, 1936 to the late Russell and Lillie (Smith) Willey in Denver, Colorado. She grew up mostly in the Denver area. She married the late Arthur Tharp in Fredrick, Colorado on July 11, 1959. Over the years, they made their home in Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming before moving to Washington in the summer of 1966. They lived for a brief period in the Leavenworth area before residing in East Wenatchee for about a year. They then moved to Wenatchee.
Alma was a stay at home mother and raised four children. She was active in the Head Start Program for several years starting in 1966. Alma began selling Avon in 1977 and continued until her passing. She took great pride in accomplishing what she needed in sales to be in the President’s Club every year. When she could, she loved to travel around the United States and see the wonders of this great nation and even venturing to Canada several times. She loved working in the yard and especially with her love of roses.
On June 3, 1991, she was preceded in death by her husband, Arthur Eugene Tharp and has since continued to make her home in Wenatchee. Alma was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. She is survived by three daughters, Julia Zerfass, Washington, Lillie (David) Baird, Colorado, Hilma McNerney, Washington, one son, Peter Tharp, Washington; one sister Ethel (Robert) Kibel, Colorado; eighteen grandchildren, April Wallace, Montana, Judy Wallace, Joy Strong, Adam Hollister, Elizabeth Glamuzina, Holly Zerfass all of Washington, Nicole Baynes, Christine Baynes, Colorado, Daniel Ramos, Washington, Joshua Ramos, Amanda Baird, Ashley Baird, Trevor Baird, Tanner Baird, all of Colorado, Brandi (Tom) Everson, California, Shana (Adam) Insley, Washinton, Stephanie (Josue) Pichardo, Florida, and Cassandra "Cassie" McNerney, Washington, her closest friend Susie Larson, Washington, and many nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and satisfied Avon customers.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, one Great-Granddaughter, Adalyne Grace, one Great-Great-Granddaughter, Riley Rene Scott-Foote. She will be cremated and ashes scattered at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials be made in Alma's name to the American Diabetes Association. You are invited to visit her tribute online at www.HeritageMemorialChapel.com. Arrangements are in the care of Heritage Memorial Chapel, East Wenatchee, Washington
