Obituary

Darline Louise Tesnohlidek Hodges

It is with much love and profound sorrow that the family of Darline Louise Hodges, announce her passing on September 30, 2020, Darline was a longtime resident of Quincy, Washington. She spent the last two years of her life in Draper, Utah, close to her daughter Alana Hodges Edwards,

Darline was born on March 7, 1934 to Jerry and Mary Tesnohlidek in Leigh, Nebraska. She was the oldest of Jerry and Mary’s children. Brother Dwaine and sister Elaine soon joined the family. When Darline was five, the family moved to Castleford, Idaho, a little town about 30 miles from Twin Falls, Idaho. She attended elementary school in a one-room school. She graduated from Castleford High School in 1952. She then moved to Twin Falls, where she successfully completed a cosmetology course and became a licensed cosmetologist in Idaho.

She married Veral Edward Hodges, March 9,1954 and with Veral’s son William, they moved to Quincy, Washington. They worked tirelessly, side-by-side, opening up land for irrigation and Darline continued to practice cosmetology. They were soon able to purchase their own land and build a modest home. They established Hodges Farms and continued farming over 2000 acres of land, raised cattle and bred, trained and raced premium Quarter horses. In 1978, they moved out on Adams Road on what was known as the Old Windmill Ranch. Darline loved the farm and working with the horses. She managed the farm finances and helped with the harvest well into her late 60’s. Together, Darline and Veral welcomed two daughters, Susan and Alana and two sons, Scott and Jerry into the family. Darline was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and held dozens of positions in the church.

Darline was preceded in death by her father Jerry, her mother Mary, son William (Bill), brother Dwaine and husband Veral. She is survived by four children, Susie (Jerry Moberg) Moses Lake, Washington, Alana (Robert Edwards) Draper, Utah, Scott (Neta) Evergreen, Colorado and Jerry (Joey) Quincy, Washington, twenty-eight grandchildren and fourteen great-grandchildren.
