Venna Hansen Moody

Halfway

1926-2013

Venna Hansen Moody, 87, died April 25 at her home in Halfway. A viewing will be from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Friday at Tami’s Pine Valley Funeral Home. A viewing will also be held prior to the service at the LDS Church at 11 a.m. Saturday. A traditional funeral service will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday at the LDS church in Halfway. Vault interment will be at Pine Haven Cemetery. Friends are invited to join the family for a reception immediately following at the LDS Church.

Venna was born on April 23, 1926, to Ralph and Zella Hansen in Carson near Halfway. She graduated a year early from Pine Valley High School in 1943, then went to Salt Lake City for business school. Then she moved to Baker and worked as a cashier and a bookkeeper. Later she went  to Hill Air Force Base in Ogden, Utah, where she worked as a cashier.

After the war, Venna returned home and then left to work in Oakland, Calif., in a restaurant and as a bookkeeper. 

She returned to Halfway to stay with her Uncle George on the ranch that her folks had bought. Venna married Jerry Del Curto in 1949. In 1950, they bought the ranch from her mom, a ranch that is still in the family. 

Their four children, Joann, Julie, Sally and Barry, were raised on the family ranch. Venna worked as a ranch wife and mother and cooked many meals for the family and workers on the ranch. She worked at several jobs — Avon sales, census taker and for the school district. In the mid-1960s, she went to work at US Bank and worked her way up to the manager position, retiring after
19-1/2 years at US Bank in Halfway. 

After retirement, she worked briefly at the US Bank La Grande branch. She and Jerry later divorced.

In 1984, Venna married Bill Moody. They enjoyed traveling and spent many winters in Yuma, Ariz. She  worked for several years in Halfway, selling real estate.  

After Bill died, she remained in Halfway, sometimes spending the winter months with her sister in Hurricane, Utah. 

She was active in the Halfway community in her younger years, having been a member of the Pine Eagle School Board, the PTA and the VFW Auxiliary.

Venna is survived by her sister, Joyce Gordon and husband Doug of Hurricane; her children, Joann Pollock of Halfway, Julie Del Curto of Halfway, Sally McCraw and husband, Mike of La Grande, and Barry Del Curto and wife, Shella of Halfway. She is also survived by her eight grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren; stepchildren Nancy Stover and Dan Moody and their families;
and many nieces and
nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husbands and three siblings.

Memorials may be made the Halfway Ambulance Fund or to the Pine Eagle Clinic through Tami’s Pine Valley Funeral Home P.O. Box 543, Halfway 97834.
