December 15, 1947 - October 18, 2013
Kenna Dawn (Scott) Ebert was born on December 15, 1947 in Vernal, Utah. She was born to Enoch and Delores (Osiek) Scott. She grew up in Vernal attending Uintah High School in Vernal. Kenna met her husband Larry in Meeker, Colorado. They were married on November 23, 1970. To this marriage, Kenna brought her two sons Jerry and Vince and Larry brought his daughter Susan. Susan felt that Kenna was as much of a mother to her as her own mother. Kenna and Larry moved to Kanorado, Kansas. They were soon blessed with their daughter Laurie Dawn. The family then moved to Oakley, Kansas. The family lived in Oakley until 1976, when Larry had the opportunity to buy an aerial spraying operation in Bassett, Nebraska. Kenna and Larry moved their family to Bassett. In 1980, Kenna and Larry were blessed with their son Larry II (Two). Kenna loved raising her children in Bassett. She made friends wherever she went. Kenna enjoyed spending time with her children and grandchildren, gardening, and coffee with the girls. Kenna had two full time jobs: a homemaker and Larry's right hand. She kept an immaculate home and yard. Kenna would never let Larry leave the house without a perfectly ironed shirt! Kenna was a natural caregiver. She was always ready to lend a helping hand to anyone in need. She won the Ak-sar-ben Good Neighbor Award. Kenna was diagnosed with cancer in August. Just two months ago, Kenna was helping Larry haul water and supplies to the fields Larry was spraying. Only four days after helping Larry, she underwent surgery placing a rod in her leg. Kenna passed away at Rock County Hospital in Bassett at the age of 65. Kenna had strong faith and there is a special place in heaven for her. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends that she left behind. Kenna was preceded in death by her parents Enoch and Delores Scott; her brother Dick Scott, and her sister Donna Barrett Etchen .
