Alberta M. (Burre) Bunting Dollens, age 82, of Jefferson City, Mo., passed away Saturday, July 4, 2020 at Pin Oaks Living Center in Mexico, Mo.

So sorry to hear of Alberta's passing. My mother, Dema Schnauss, worked for Alberta at Frontier Insurance for years during the 70's, 80's and early 90's. I remember visiting mom occasionally while she was at work, and Alberta would always break away from her work, come out of her office, and visit with me. She was always anxious to hear whatever story I was telling and was always very friendly. Please know that she is in my thoughts!
