She attended high school in Hecla, SD and graduated with the class of 1934. She attended Northern Normal Teachers College in Aberdeen, SD for one year and taught school for four years in rural Brown County. She was united in marriage to Ravone Fetherhuff on December 28, 1939 in the Wesleyan Methodist Church in Houghton. They lived on the Fetherhuff family farm for three years where their son, Arden was born. They bought their own farm at Huffton, SD in 1943, where their three daughters, Rita, Ila, and Ronna were born. In 1953 they purchased a larger farm near Columbia, SD, where they lived for forty years. Alta was a stay-at-home mom until their children were all in school. In 1958 she continued on to pursue her Bachelors Degree from Northern State College in Aberdeen, which she received in 1965. Alta taught at Daly Corner School, Columbia Public School and Aberdeen City Schools for 21 more years until retiring in 1978. Alta and Ravone traveled extensively. They were active members of the Houghton Wesleyan Church and Aberdeen Alliance Church. Alta was a co-leader of a bible study in the Columbia area for 14 years. After her husband Ravone died in 1992, she moved to Primrose Community Center in Aberdeen where she was involved in many activities. She also was a volunteer at St. Luke’s Hospital in Aberdeen. After moving to Blair, NE in 1995 to be near family, she became a member of Monday Afternoon Club, Christian Women’s Club, We Care & Share Group, and Methodist Women’s Circle.
