Alberta S. Winsett, age 85, "affectionately known as Mu," went to be home with her heavenly father on the night of Wednesday April 22, 2020. Alberta was born on October 12, 1934 in Talladega County, Alabama and attended Calhoun County Training School. Alberta was a devoted mother of three children. Alberta worked 30 years at Tape Craft while caring for her parents and other family members until their deaths. After retirement from Tape Craft she continued her passion of working in her flower bed, visiting the sick, and making handmade quilts. She dedicated her life to Christ at an early age and became a member of New Prospect Baptist Church where she served faithfully. She enjoyed being a choir member until her health declined. She is survived by her children Ronald (Gwendolyn) Winsett; Shirley Graham and Denise (Lamar) McCain, and son in-love Franklin Graham. Sister: Sarah Headen, Cleveland, Ohio. Grandchildren: Shannon (Valerie) Williams, Ataska Winsett, Timothy (Shannon) McCain, Christopher McCain and Franklin J. (Alexis) Graham.
