Elda “Belle” Wolfblack adventure began on the highway between Oklahoma and Washington on December 3, 1946 to Eldred and Daisy Burchell. She grew up in Washington with her Father and her sisters Brenda, Daisy, Tonya, Kris and brothers Raymond, Keith, and Scott. At the age of 15 she met and fell in love with Roland Luttrell. She learned many useful outdoor skills that she taught. Including making a pie from scratch in a dutch oven in the ground. Together they had 5 Beautiful children. Winston, Charleen, Darlene, William, and Kathleen. During this time she suffered on of the most heartbreaking times of her life with the passing of her sweet baby girls, Darlene “New baby”. They shared 18 years of marriage before Roland fell ill.
Alone Belle with her 5 children she filled her tank and hit the open highway. One of her greatest sayings was “Give me a full tank of gas, peanut butter, a loaf of bread and a open highway and I’m gone!” Her adventure ended when she met and married Edward Nalton. Edward and Belle had 3 children Idabelle, Edward, and Eldred. After a brief marriage she hit the road again with 7 children.
In 1987 she met the love of her life. Alvin “Buster” Wolfblack. After meeting him we asked him to be our daddy. Together they created their their own idea of heaven on earth. Traveling, raising kids and adopting anyone who wanted to be part of the pack.
When she was 48 years old she got her GED, and got her Degree in Nursing. A major event in her so called oaky life. And her passion for learning soared to new heights that continued until her passing.
She was known by many as Ma Belle or Momma because she mother henned all. She found the Lord again and became humble and peaceful. She had a open heart and ear for anyone that needed it. She would drop anything in a moments notice to help in any way possible.
Mom loved to dance,sing and her family. She longed for the coast. And her James Brown mornings put a smile on all faces. Gathering with the family and friends gave her great joy.She had a special love for her grandchildren having helped raising them and her great grand babies. She had so much love to give and she gave it whole heartedly.
She has many many loved ones. And the list would be to big to name everyone. So she leaves us with her legacy of love.
Family will receive friends on Wednesday, February 21, 2018 from 4-6 p.m. at Stevenson and Sons Funeral Home in Miles City. Condolences to the family may be sent by visiting www.stevensonandsons.com.
