Alberta Inez Irvine, 92, of Framingham and formerly Hopkinton, passed away Sunday, December 20, 2020 at Newton Wellesley Hospital. Born in Dover, Delaware she was the daughter of the late Cora (McCauley) and Frank Wilson.

She was the beloved wife of 21 years to Wallace “Wally” Irvine of Hopkinton. Wally and Alberta met later in life after both losing their spouses to cancer. They met and fell in love at a bereavement group and married two years later in 1999. They were devoted to each other in every way possible and moved together to Brookdale Cushing Park. The pandemic could not keep these two love birds apart. Wally continued to visit when possible and utilized technology to keep in contact with her during times he could not. Alberta enjoyed baking and cooking. She was an avid seamstress and gardener.
