Thomas Ames Wolverton
Thomas Ames Wolverton, 81, of Stevensville, died Friday, Feb 16, 2007, at the Bitterroot Valley Living Center.
He was born Jan. 26, 1926, in Lovell, to Edwin A. and Lou Bell (Ames) Wolverton. Tom received his education in Wyoming and Montana. He was inducted into the U.S. Marine Corps in 1944 and honorably discharged in 1946. He participated in operations against enemy forces on Iwo Jima and Kyushu, Japan.
He married Lita R. Humphreys on June 29, 1947, in Lusk. Tom began working for Continental Oil Co. in 1946 at Lance Creek, was transferred in 1954 to Brush, Colo., and in 1969 to Linch, retiring in 1985. He enjoyed hunting, fishing and camping.
He was a devoted loving husband, father and grandfather who loved spending time with his family in the outdoors. He was a good listener and was content just relaxing and passing the time watching the children play. He had a traditional, natural way about him but loved laughing at life. His family and friends will hold his compassions close to their hearts.
Tom was preceded in death by his parents.
He is survived by his wife, Lita Rose Wolverton of Stevensville; daughter Carmen Jean (Tom) Pederson of Stevensville; sister Bennis McKibben of Biloxi, Miss.; grandchildren Jeff Pederson of Hermiston, Ore., and Dawnnele (Jason) Rangitsch of Bozeman; great-grandchildren Andrew and Colby Pederson, and Keyley Rangitsch; and many dear nieces and nephews.
