Her final day on earth was a beautiful warm day, that she spent with the ones she loved most, her family is left comforted by some of her last words, “Today was a good day.” She was so deserving of many good days.
She will be remembered by her daughter, Tessa Abrianna (Matthew) Norman; son, Brian Keith Wolford; brothers, Gerald “Peanut” Fields; Clyde “June Bug” Fields; grandchildren, Amber McCracken, Teresa Irick, and Vanessa Mouser; great grandchildren, Shyanne Gooslin, Jakolby Norman, Kinzer Norman, Kaleb Norman, Raven Mouser, and Trey McCracken.

She was preceded in death by her loving husband Eddie Wolford; father, Clyde Fields Sr; mother, Zettie “Justice” Fields; daughters, Kimberly Duty, and Melissa Wolford; brothers, Stearl, Chester, Ernie, and Ermel Fields; and sister, Fayetta Blankenship.
Eddie and Jenny were married in 1967. She grew up and raised her four children in Phelps, KY but recently moved to Richmond, KY to be close to her daughter Tessa and grandsons. Jenny enjoyed being spoiled, especially by her late husband Eddie who would take her shopping and fishing at the best fishing spots in the area. He always made sure her chicken pen was full. He knew how much she enjoyed the small farm life. She also cherished time spent shopping with her daughter and she loved being a grandma. Even after moving to Richmond where her family planned to take care of her, she never stopped taking care of them. She was a natural caretaker and took pride in helping her daughter. She was someone everyone knew as Grandma Jenny. Although she may not have been the typical grandma, she was sure to make you laugh, and made sure you felt loved. Her time here on earth was cut far too short and she will forever be missed by all who knew and loved her.
The family would like to welcome friends Tuesday, April 18th, 2023, at the Jones & West Funeral Home for visitation between 12:00 – 3:00 P.M. Interment will follow at Wolford Family Cemetery in Phelps, KY.
