Britt Badgley Alamo tragically died on Friday, August 26, 2016.  Britt, a beloved BUSD teacher, daughter, mother, and sister, leaves behind her husband, Steve Alamo, and 6-year-old daughter, Elsa.  Britt was committed to serving her community and family.  She worked tirelessly to champion the rights of teachers and supported the learning of thousands of Berkeley’s young people at Longfellow Middle School.  In addition, she cherished Steve and Elsa and her extended family.  Steve and Elsa need your help now.  They are faced with financial demands that cannot be meet without Britt’s salary. We are asking for a year of Britt’s Salary to help defray the immediate financial needs of the family and to begin to fund Elsa’s college fund.

 

Steve and Elsa are still reeling from their loss.  Elsa has been gathering all of the photos of Britt and cradles them in her arms.  Elsa starts school this week and Steve will return to work at Benchmark Pizza, but he is not able to cover all of the expenses of their home, living, insurance and burial.  The family would like to remain in their home to cherish the memory of Britt and to maintain routines for Elsa.  Of the funds raised the family will be reserving 25% to establish a college fund for Elsa, the remaining funds will be used to replace Britt’s salary and be used for living expenses – rent, food, and insurance. 

 

Please give any amount possible for you.  Steve and Elsa are most grateful for your support and love at this time.

On this first day of the new year I want to express our appreciation for the gifts shared with Steve and Elsa. However hard this year has been for all of us, there has been a balancing of love that makes the loss somehow bearable. Thank you for being a part of Britt's life. She gave us great joy and laughter, numerous stories, and a seriousness of purpose and reason to be on the side of a greater good.

Thank you to all of Britt Badgley Alamo's friends and family who have given so generously to Steve and Elsa and expressed their love for Britt in a multitude of ways.
Tell the stories of Britt to darling Elsa in the years to come...so that she is always in the company of her dear mother and always knows the woman who brought her to this world and what it is to be a giver.

Britt would quote Hillary, "It takes a village!" The generosity and love from this community, friends and family, is reflected in so many gifts, cards, words of love and care for Steve and Elsa Alamo. It is with a profound sense of humility and gratitude that we acknowlege these monetary gifts to help sustain Steve in this difficult transition and to provide for a future education of Elsa, a remarkable little six year old.
