Alma Whitehead passed peacefully in her daughter's home on Monday, April 15, 2024, while being lovingly attended by her family surrounding her.

Born February 10, 1932, to Ralph and Carolina Matteucci on the family ranch in Fallon, Nevada. Alma spent her early years on the family ranch farming. She loved helping her family grow fruit and vegetables for the community. The family ranch was the gathering place for countless aunts and uncles and cousins.

In 1950, she married Donald Wayne Whitehead. She and Wayne lived all over Nevada while Wayne worked in road construction. Wayne and Alma were married 55 years. Alma loved helping her children and their friends in Jr. Riders, 4-H, and Jr. and High School Rodeos. She traveled to many states to spend time with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Grandma Alma will be remembered so well by her special talent to soothe the little babies to sleep and countless simple and delicious cream cheese pies. Her family was everything to her, and she taught all of them by example of hard work and caring about others.

Alma was preceded in death by her husband Donald Wayne Whitehead, her daughter Waynette VanFleet and her parents, Ralph and Carolina Matteucci, and also her brother Remo Matteucci and sister Phyllis Baker.
