Alberta was born in Havre on Jan. 31, 1944, to Albert and Ruth Statelen.
She is survived by her longtime loving companion, Stan Booth of Malta; her daughter, Gina Colwell of Las Vegas; her only brother Calvin Statelen of Missoula; her sisters, Carmon Statelen Hammond of Australia and Marlys Statelen Carpenter of Lewistown; four grandsons, Michael Buck of Kent, Wash., and Chad Colwell, Chris Colwell and Colin Colwell of Las Vegas.
Alberta was preceded in death by her loving parents, Albert and Ruth Statelen; and her adoring daughter, Cindy Butler Buck.
Alberta loved to play her accordion and the organ her parents passed down to her, participate in the annual chili cook-off at the VFW in Malta and loved her family with all of her heart. Alberta cherished her close lifetime relationship she had with her special cousin, Roberta Cederberg of Turner. Her home was filled with pictures of the grandsons she adored and cherished. Alberta loved the spring when she could plant vibrant flowers in her front yard.
The family wishes to express deep appreciation to the Great Falls Peace Hospice and Schnider Funeral Home in Great Falls for their care and support of their precious loved one.
