Alma D. Lukavsky was born Sept. 29, 1918, in Washington County, Iowa, to Fred and Mary (Vondrasek) Lukavsky. On April 8, 1941, she was united in marriage to Elmo (Monk) Rummelhart in Iowa City. He died on Sept. 1, 1968.
Alma was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Riverside, Eagle’s Club Women’s Auxiliary of Iowa City, and the Riverside Bowling League. She enjoyed playing cards, bowling, and gardening. She also loved fishing with her mother.
There are numerous nieces and nephews, great nieces and great nephews, as well as great-greats of both. However, the relationship went over and above to her niece, Dorothy (Lukavsky) Sexton. Alma took over child care when Dorothy was a small toddler and was her “mother,” “sister” and “aunt” all in one, until her death.
Every child had a special place in Alma’s heart as she babysat for many in the Riverside area. Those who knew her know that she was ornery, loved to tease (whether she knew you or not), and loved each and every person with whom she came into contact.
Alma will be deeply missed by her niece, Dorothy Sexton of Lone Tree; brother, Harold of Columbus Junction; and many nieces and nephews.
Alma was preceded in death by her parents; sister Wilma; and three brothers: Leo, Richard, and Arnold.
