Verdo started his career as a teen working in a funeral home
in Calaveras County. The first thing he did was work a funeral service for a
young woman killed in a car accident.
Her grandmother thanked and hugged Verdo after the service and this had
a profound impact on him. He decided to
go to Mortuary School and has been in funeral service for 40 years. After Calaveras County, he ended up in Richmond,
CA, a suburb of San Francisco. There he
worked for several years until being offered the Managing Partner position here
at McNary-Moore. Colusa and Richmond are
very different and Verdo was excited to move here and raise his then 2-year-old
daughter and 5-year-old son in a wholesome environment. He has been at McNary-Moore since 2000 and
wouldn’t change a thing. In his spare
time, he is a car aficionado, loves the San Francisco 49’ers and taking long
rides on his Harley Davidson. He is a
grill master and also does a great job with a smoker. He has several furry family members and his daughter
Hailey is now 21 and married to Brandon and his son Kevin is now 25.
Nadine is new to McNary-Moore, but not to funeral
service. She is a licensed Funeral
Director and has taken care of families for more than 20 years. Nadine came to funeral service after a
15-year career in dentistry. A negative
experience with a funeral home after the sudden loss of her mother spurred her
into action as she felt “if that was the best they can do, I can do it
better.” She left her career, studied
the laws related to funeral directing, took the state board test and passed.
Her first position was with the funeral home she was upset with. She has a knack for picking up even the
smallest nuance in a conversation with a family about their loved one and make
it part of their service. She bonds with families on a level that creates deep
trust and doesn’t know how to do things half-way. In her off time, Nadine enjoys her large garden
and sharing and canning what she grows.
She often jokes she needs a 12-step program for her cooking habit. An
avid animal lover, she has several furry family members and is the proud mom of
two boys, Nicholas, 26 and Taylor, 24 and their beautiful wives Terryn and
Rebecca is 25-years-old and
has lived in Colusa for 13-years. She began her funeral service career with us
at McNary-Moore in April 2017. She says she never thought she'd ever be working
in a funeral home. She was at the time making cakes at the local grocery store.
She decided to take on funeral service as something completely new. From
decorating cakes to arranging funerals for families mourning the loss of a
loved one. She says "when I first took on the position, I didn't know what
to expect, I can honestly say it is one of the best decisions I have ever made.
Being part of McNary-Moore has given me the chance to get closer to the
community and meet new people. Though the reason behind getting to know
everyone is not typical, I do find it comforting to know I can help those
around me at such a hard time in their lives and do the best I can to ease what
they are going through." Rebecca finds the best part of the job is the
gratitude, kind words and hugs from the families she serves, it makes her feel
like she made a difference.
Grief Support/Emotional Therapy
Miss Mo is the newest member of the McNary-Moore family. She is our first grief support/emotional therapy dog. She is four-months-old and takes her job very seriously. She was born for her role in offering our families furry love and support. She is mild mannered and enjoys what she does. She also brings support and love to our staff, having her in the office takes away a lot of the sadness that comes with helping families cope with loss. We feel fortunate to have her with us,
Delbert has been with McNary-Moore on and off since he was
16-years-old. He has been here
permanently since 1980. He is a funeral assistant/jack-of-all-trades, and an
integral part of keeping the vehicles looking good as well as working with
families. Delbert has been married to
Nancy for 59-years and even though you’d never guess it, he rides a scooter to
work every day! Delbert is always quick
to cover for others when needed and is a lifelong resident of Colusa save for a
short stint in San Martine, CA on Harvey Bear Ranch. He enjoys rodeos, A’s and Giants baseball as
well as 49’ers football. Delbert enjoys
his interaction with families we serve, he finds it rewarding knowing he is
helping them at such a difficult time.
Mary Lou has been with McNary Moore as a funeral assistant
since 1980. Mary Lou was born and raised
in Williams and resides in Colusa. She continues to be an integral part of the
community. An avid baker, Mary Lou makes
a mean rum cake and other amazing delectable treats she shares with staff and
families. Mary Lou is probably the most
recognizable face on our staff. She
melds well with families and puts them at ease when she works their
visitations. Mary Lou enjoys spending
free time with her beloved family and occasionally going to the Colusa Casino
where she is a VIP. Mary Lou enjoys
working in her community making a difficult time for the families a little less
stressful. She is a gem and we are so glad to have her.
Robert, less formally known as Bob has been with
McNary-Moore since 2018. Bob was retired
after a long and varied career including driving truck and proprietor of an
electronics company. McNary-Moore needed
an on-call person to work evening services and various other duties. Bob
decided “why not?” and has been here ever since. A longtime resident of Colusa, Bob loves
classic cars, having restored a junked Camaro to its previous beauty and riding
his Harley. He excels as a backyard cook
and is a pro when it comes to a smoker, creating delicious flavors with
different types of meat. Bob is sociable
and gets along well with the families he works with. He feels honored to be able to assist with
families paying their last respects to their loved ones and make a positive
impact on what for most people is the most difficult time in their lives.
