Louise Aliverti

March 7, 1913 – February 19, 2013


Louise Aliverti, a Walla Walla resident from her birth

March 7, 1913 until 2004 when she moved to the Seattle area

to be nearer to her children and grandchildren, passed away on

Tuesday, February 19th.

Louise and her late husband Ambrose (Babe) farmed the

land on which Walla Walla General Hospital now sits until 1960.

When they retired from farming, Louise went to work for Walla

Walla Produce where she remained until she retired in 1978.

The following years were spent tending her beautiful garden at

her home on Bryant and volunteering at the Walla Walla Senior

Center. Her garden, which she maintained until her move to

Seattle when she was 90, looked like a beautiful park. She had a

special touch with her roses and no visitor during the summer

months left without a lovely bouquet to take home.

During her long retirement years, Louise enjoyed traveling

with family to Europe, Asia, Hawaii, Alaska and quite widely

in the continental United States visiting her children and

grandchildren in various parts of the country. When in Europe,

she particularly loved her visit to the Lakes region of Northern

Italy where her parents had been born and lived until they

immigrated to the US and settled in Walla Walla.

Louise is survived by her son Robert and his wife Dana,

daughter in law Shirley Aliverti, brother Ambrose Ponti,

grandchildren Jann Aliverti, Leslie Jones (Ted), Gina Thorvilson

(Rick), Bob Aliverti (Alison), Brent Aliverti (Anne), six

great grandchildren and one great great grandchild. She was

predeceased by her husband Ambrose, her son Edward, her

sisters Linda Aliverti, MadelineTalarico, Rose Pesciallo and

brother John Ponti.

Rosary will be recited at 7:00 pm on Friday, March 1, 2013

The graveside service will be at 11:00 am at Mountain View
