Who is Alberta Rider

May of 2001, Alberta sold her property to the Tigard-Tualatin School District with the stipulation that she be allowed to live in the cabin until her death. Darin Barnard (Alberta Rider's 1st principal: 2005-2010) said during her last years in the cabin, Alberta would frequently visit the school to eat lunch, share stories and play the piano for the children (including a kissing song she'd written, to which the children would giggle and say, 'yuck!').

January 7, 1913 - August 12, 2009

Children: Craig, Earline, Douglas
