Margaret "Louise "Wolfe, age 81, of Round Up, MT., and formerly of Green Island, Iowa, was called home peacefully on Tuesday, August 15, 2017 at St. Vincent Healthcare, Billings, MT. To honor Louise's life, private family services will be held at 10:00 a.m., on Monday, August 21, 2017, at Behr Funeral Home, 1491 Main Street, with Deacon Jim Kean officiating. To celebrate Louise's life, family may visit from 9:00 a.m., until the time of services at 10:00 a.m. on Monday, at Behr Funeral Home. Burial will be in Linwood Cemetery.

Louise was born on July 18, 1936 in Delta, Iowa, daughter of Howard and Edith (Roberts) Wells.

Louise was united in marriage to the love of her life, Daniel J. Wolfe, on May 29, 1958, at St. Martin's Church in Cascade. They were truly blessed with 58 wonderful years together, and 3 boys, before Daniel was called home ahead of her on March 3, 2017. The couple spent over 40 years together on the family farm while Louise lovingly raised her family with a nurturing devotion which seemed to come quite naturally to her. Louise's caring character was not only confined to her family at home though; she was also able to put her compassion for others to work in the nursing field for over 30 years. Our hearts ache today, and we are quite devastated to lose our sweetest mom within 5 months of our dad; but we are also quite relieved to know that our loving parents are once again reunited and will never have to part ways again. Thank you mom for all of the love, wisdom and memories you leave behind for us to embrace, cherish and remember, and may you enjoy eternal peace with dad until we are all together again one day.

Those left to cherish Louise's memory include

3 sons,
Howard (JoDee) Wolfe, Bellevue, IA,
Todd (Janette) Wolfe, West Point, IA
and John (CJ) Wolfe, Round Up, MT;

her 8 grandchildren,
Jessica (Vamsi) Manda, Ryan (Gina) Cochran, Andrew Cochran, KayDee (Tony) Sells, Kellie (Sklar) Orth, Kayla (Matt) Bitting, Madison (Josh) Wolfe and Jake Wolfe;

and her 11 great-grandchildren,
Theron and Liberty Reiter, Blair Cochran, Daniel Sells, LynDee Sells, Bentley Bitting, Adelyn Bitting, Broderick Robertson, Harleiah Robertson, J.T. Robertson and Zander Robertson.

Louise was preceded in death by her parents; her loving husband, Daniel; and 3 sisters, Ruth Wells, Mary Lou (Doyle) Christy and Maxine Verdeer.

A Margaret Louise Wolfe memorial fund has been established, which will be distributed among her favorite charities.
