Vennie was born Sept. 7, 1909, to Ray Jordan and Mamie (Riggins) Oliver in Fossil. The family moved to Union where she met Roy Delaney. They married on March 27, 1930. They lived in Union and raised their children there. She cooked at three restaurants during the early years and later became the town “Avon Lady” for 15 years.

Vennie and her good friend, Grace Aldrich, enjoyed traveling and lots of fun times together. Vennie took oil and watercolor painting lessons from her daughter, a well-known local artist. In 1974 her husband preceded her in death, and in 1999 she moved with her daughter and son-in-law to Lewiston.
