Lila Leaf Fenn, one of five children of Guy Virgil and Fern Leaf (Rodwell) Stevens, was born on June 8, 1926 on a farm near Oakland, Iowa. She graduated from Oakland High School in 1944. Upon graduation Lila taught country school for several years, then became a stay-at-home mother and farm wife. Lila worked for First National Bank in Omaha for a few years, then at the Council Bluffs Savings Bank (which later became First Tier Bank and US Bank) until retirement in 1992.
Lila and Earlin Eugene Fenn were united in marriage on June 25, 1948 at the Oakland Christian Church in Oakland and made their home on the farm for many years. They began wintering in Mesa, Arizona in 1992 and enjoyed square dancing and playing cards. They loved spending time with their friends and especially with their family.
Lila and Earlin were married 62 years when Earlin passed away in Mesa on March 9, 2010. Lila continued to spend her time both in Iowa and Arizona until finally moving to live in Arizona in November 2018.
In addition to her beloved husband Earlin, Lila was preceded in death by her parents; her brother Gerald Stevens; brothers-in-law, Dean Hackett and Robert Scott; and sisters-in-law, Marie Eggers and husband Eldon, and Lois Boruff and husband Willard.
Lila is survived by her children, Roger Fenn and wife Sylvia of Cameron, MO, Murray Fenn and wife Heather of Carson, IA, and Marjean Ollendick and husband Mark of Apache Junction, AZ; 9 grandchildren; 17 great grandchildren; sisters, Shirley Hackett of Syracuse, NE, and Donna Scott of Council Bluffs, IA; brother Gayle Stevens and wife Judy of Texas; other relatives; and many special friends.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. Jack and I have fond memories or the times we square danced with Lila. She always had a smile.
