Helen M. Kenfield

June 29, 1926 — July 4, 2014

Helen M. Kenfield, age 88 of Ogallala, passed away July 4, 2014 at the Indian Hills Manor in Ogallala.
Helen was born June 29, 1926 at Crab Orchard, Nebraska to Ivan and Velma (Holthan) Pierce. She attended school at Big Springs, Nebraska.
On September 23, 1943, Helen married Robert Kenfield at Julesburg, Colorado. Shortly after their nuptials, Robert was sent overseas to serve in WWII. Helen lived in Ogallala throughout Robert’s service, and the couple was reunited following his discharge in 1946. Throughout the next 10 years, Helen and Robert lived in Ogallala, Big Springs and California. In 1961, they returned to Ogallala and started Kenfield Electric. Helen worked at Buenz Drug before eventually devoting herself to handling the books for their business.
Helen was an avid gardener and loved flowers. She also loved to bake; particularly pies, which were sought after prizes among the family. She greatly enjoyed entertaining her family over holidays, and got great satisfaction in spoiling her grandchildren. Helen also appreciated the challenge of a good crossword puzzle.
Helen is preceded in death by her parents; brother, Richard Pierce; and a half-brother, Ronald Pierce.
Survivors include her husband, Robert Kenfield of Brule; daughter, Fauna (Denny) Quick of Plattsmouth; 2 granddaughters, Stephanie (Jeff) Ewen of Papillion, Traci (Jerry) Rodriguez of Stillwell, KS; and a great grandson, Jack Ewen of Papillion; sister, Shirley (Roger) Rankin of Ogallala; and brother, Robert Pierce of Grand Island.
