May 22, 1941 - May 19, 2021
Our beloved mother, grandmother, sister, and aunt Alberta (Bert) Callaway went home to be with the Lord on May 19, 2021 at Covenant Medical Center-Cooper at the age of 79 years. She was born on May 22, 1941 in Bishopville, South Carolina to the late Warren and Vicey Wright. As young children, she and her brother Warren were the first ones to receive the Lord by attending a Holiness tent service in South Carolina. The family then moved to Saginaw, Michigan where she attended Central Middle School and Saginaw High. At a young age she married Leroy Knuckles. She continued her education and attended Delta College to become a teacher’s aide. While completing her education she worked at St. Rita’s Head Start. In her later years she married Theos Callaway. She was a mother of three, but she has gained many more loving children from her husband Theos. Alberta also loved to cook, sew, take pictures, tend to her garden when she could, talk to friends and family on Google Duo and praise the Lord at Lewis Temple C.O.G.I.C.
