Onee Z. “Jenny” Fields



Onee Z. “Jenny” Fields-Combs, 75 of Seymour, passed away at Schneck Medical Center on Wednesday, May 14, 2020. She was born June 29, 1944, in West Virginia, the daughter of the late Roscoe and Delana Napier.

She was blessed to have two wonderful men in her life. Donald G. “Gene” Combs who survives and Richard B. Fields who preceded her in death in 2005.

Jenny was a member of Freetown Church of Christ, belonged to the Loyal Daughters and Jackson County Christian Women’s Fellowship. She worked 16 years for the Marion County Election polls and was instrumental in starting a neighborhood watch in Lawrence Township.

She loved cutting wood and grass in her earlier years and also played softball and golf. She enjoyed making quilt tops and fixing old furniture. She loved eating with friends. Her greatest love was her Lord and Savior.
