Carol Irene Halvorson


August 9, 2017

Carol Irene Halvorson, 75, went softly into the Lord's arms at Benefis Healthcare surrounded by her family on Sunday, August 6, 2017.

Carol was born to Robert and Myrtle Pruett on January 23, 1942 in Whitehall. She received her education at Whitehall schools and Butte Business College. She married Chesley Hunt in 1957 and their marriage resulted in her children, Marlin and Valerie. She later was married in 1970 to Carl Halvorson and their marriage resulted in her children, Carl Jr. and Inga.

She traveled and lived in a lot of places, but she most loved living in Montana. She was a Christian lady and very much enjoyed studying the Bible. She loved playing piano and guitar and singing and dancing. She loved camping, fishing and just being out in nature. She had a great love of animals and would have given a home to every one that came to her door if she could have. She loved having a big family and was well known for her family dinners.

She was a best friend to each of her children and always had time to listen. She helped to raise many other kids who were brought to her doorstep. She was a very caring person who would do anything in her power to help you. She will be greatly missed.

Carol is survived by her husband, Carl, of Whitehall, her children, Valerie Templeton, Carl Halvorson, Jr. (Sharon "Sari"), and Inga Doney, all of Whitehall; her grandchildren, Daniel Templeton, Amber Templeton, Alauna Harris, Addison Sullivan, Ava Halvorson and Naomi Doney, all of Whitehall and Carl Halvorson, III "Ossie" of Butte, MT and numerous great-grandchildren and step-siblings.

She is preceded in death by her son, Marlin Hunt, her granddaughter, Melanie C. Templeton, her grandson, Jacob Doney, her sister and brother-in-law, Ione and Dan Long, her brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Jack and Jessie Halvorson, and step-brother-in-law, Robert Haxby.

Viewing will be held Thursday evening from 6-8 at K&L Mortuary Chapel at Whitehall. Funeral service will be held Friday at 10:00 am from Whitehall Assembly of God church with Rev. Bill Lanes officiating. Interment will follow in the Whitehall Cemetery. The pallbearers are Ossie Halvorson, Gord Doney, Dan Templeton, Monty Cox, Gunner Halvorson and Doug Templeton.
