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.
