May 29, 1929 - May 24, 2016

Dorothy “Dot” Landis Albert of Virginia Beach (formerly of Warsaw, VA and Long Shop, VA) died peacefully Tuesday, May 24, 2016.

Dot was preceded in death by her parents Harvey M. and Ethel Zimmerman Landis, her step-mother Lois Landis, her husband Burgess H. Albert, a daughter Thelma Albert Banerjee, and her brothers Dale Landis and Glen Landis.

Born May 29, 1929, Dot grew up in a large family during the Great Depression, developing life-long qualities of being hard working, and resourceful. Over the years, Dot and her siblings participated in many service projects, some of which included providing disaster relief, building Habitat For Humanity homes, and serving at Camp Ithiel – a camp in Florida founded by their father. Dot was proficient in chair caning, loved travel, card games, and her friends at Seagate Colony. She was known for her “macaroni wiggle” and her deviled eggs.

There will be a celebration of Dot’s life at Seagate Colony (2830 Shore Dr, Virginia Beach, VA 23451) on Saturday, June 4, at 4:00 PM.

What our families say...

In my opinion, there is no better facility in Virginia than Altmeyer Funeral Homes. Not only was Chris Sisler there to hold my hand every step of the way, his family members were holding the door on the day of the funeral to help and encourage me. I will never forget their grace. He led me and my family through the process as a personal friend and neighbor, and as the ultimate professional.
