Barbara Ellen Wolverton age 93 peacefully passed away at home on March 15, 2021 with her daughter Nikki by her side.
She was born March 9, 1928 in Quay Oklahoma to Simeon and Mary Dillon.
She was one of 10 children.
They later moved to Twin Falls, Idaho.
Barbara graduated from Twin Falls High School and she was a lifelong active member of St. Edwards Parrish. She went on several Catholic Women's retreats. She played in the Catholic Women's Pinochle Tournaments and played quite well if you asked her. She would volunteer wherever she was needed. She never missed a Harvest Festival unless ill or out of town.
She enjoyed traveling to visit family and she absolutely loved the West Coast. She so enjoyed the coast that she turned her bathroom into a coastal escape with fish net curtains, seashells, lighthouses. She even made a seashell wreath which she placed at the far end of her mirror. Her beloved Father Rob even gave her an item for her wreath. She so enjoyed all the priests but Father Rob held a special place in her heart for him.
She met and married Don Wolverton. They had four children. Mary Elizabeth (deceased), Nikki Lynne, James Roger 'Rocky' and John David (deceased). They later divorced.
She cherished her family, her faith and her Irish heritage. She loved people, 2nd hand stores, reading, visiting family and she loved the West Coast beaches, lighthouses and seashells.
She is survived by her two children Nikki and Rocky, her 2 grandchildren Trenton and Cheyenne, her 6 Great grandchildren, her sisters Edith and Mary Jo and her brother Joe.

It was an honor being your granddaughter. I got to love you for 38 years. Not being able to see you has kicked my butt. It has really hit me hard. You were such an integral part of my entire life. You always will be. I miss you. May you Rest In Peace. In my heart and memories, you will forever be. Until we meet again. I love you.
