Venita Monehan Obituary

Venita Monehan, 85, passed away on December 03, 2023, in Poplar Bluff, Missouri.  She leaves behind family and friends grieving over their loss but rejoicing that she is now with her Heavenly Father for all eternity.
Venita was born in Broseley, Missouri, on May 10, 1938, to Carl and Maudie Mohr.  She was one of six children and grew up and attended school in Broseley.  She married the love of her life, William Leon Monehan, in Hernando, Mississippi in 1956.
Venita loved watching the St. Louis Cardinals; she was an avid seamstress and enjoyed cooking and outdoor camping.  She retired as a food service assistant from the Poplar Bluff School District after 23 years of service.  Throughout the years, she was active in church and was a current member of Little Brown Baptist Church, where she previously served as secretary and treasurer.  After retirement, her volunteer positions included serving as an election worker in the local county elections and working in the hospital gift shop.  She spent much time with her family and friends.
Venita is survived by family whom she loved dearly: her husband of 67 years, William Leon Monehan; son Jerry Monehan (Diane) of St. Louis, MO, daughter Debra Donnellan of Springfield, MO, grandson Jerry Christopher Monehan (Heather) of Chesterfield, MO, and granddaughters Brittany Donnellan Collins (Joseph III), of Alexandria, VA, and Bailey Donnellan of Springfield, MO.  Step-grandson, Danny Worley, step-great granddaughter Annie Lynn Worley of St. Louis, MO; sisters Violet Huggins (Everett), and Teresa Moore and brothers George Mohr (Linda), and Jim Mohr (Darlene), and numerous nieces and nephews.
