Alta was born on January 8, 1920 in Washington, Distict of Columbia and grew up in our nation's capital. She married Wilbur Boyd Perine, Jr. in 1939 and they celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary a few months before he passed away. They are the parents of three daughters: Barbara Hymas (husband Randy), Nancy Whitten (husband Bob) and Donna Perine who passed away as a young child from leukemia in 1949.

Alta worked in the financial office of Potomac School in McLean, Virginia. She loved working there, not only because of her many friends, but because she loved being surrounded by children. Alta loved to dance and was an avid Redskins fan. She also loved people and always tried to see the good in others. She was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Alta was a loving grandmother to six grandchildren: Rachael Hymas Mitchell (husband David), Benjamin Hymas (wife Sarah), Jason Hymas (wife Emily), Jessica Hymas Wilkerson (husband Kevin), Wesley Whitten and Max Whitten. She has thirteen great grandchildren.
