Jenny was born Sept. 10, 1952, in Columbus, Nebraska, to Leon and Inez (Lassek) Edic. She grew up in Columbus and graduated from Columbus Scotus High School, then attended Platte Community College and graduated with a nursing degree.

On April 15, 1972 she married Roy Greenfield in Columbus, Nebraska. They were blessed with a daughter, Angela, but regretfully lost her twin brother, Erick, at birth. She worked at Clarkson Hospital in Omaha for several years, and due to poor health, she retired and became a full-time homemaker. She and her husband moved to Buffalo County in 1980 and lived near Amherst.

Jenny suffered a stroke in 2013 and lived at St. John’s, then moved to Mount Carmel Home.

Surviving relatives include her husband, Roy Greenfield, of Amherst; daughter, Angela Greenfield of Kearney; brother, LaRoy Edic and wife Donna of Columbus, Nebraska; and sister, Pat Dohman of Humphrey. She always held a special place in her heart for sister-in-law Eunice and brother-in-law Bill Potter and Orival and Edna Greenfield.

She was preceded in death by her son, Erick, in 1979; and three brothers.

The family expresses deepest appreciation to AseraCare Hospice for its assistance.
