Amelia Buhman obituary
Posted: 10/16/2020 - by Charlie Narmi
The St. Albert family is saddened by the passing of Amelia Buhman. Amelia was a St. Albert Mom, Grandma and supporter. She was a devout, active Catholic at St. Peter's Parish and was a wonderful example of a good, Christian woman. Please keep her entire family in your prayers this week, especially the wonderfully St. Albert supportive Gradoville family and please join now in praying for the repose of Amelia's soul...
Eternal rest grant unto Amelia O Lord: And let perpetual light shine upon her.
May Amelia rest in peace. Amen
May Amelia's soul and the souls of all the faithfully departed through the mercy of God our Father rest in peace. Amen
