Bodfield was born on June 22, 1942, in Gothenburg to Harold and Hazel (Bringelson) Hayworth. She was raised in Gothenburg and attended school there until moving with her family to Hershey when she was in high school. Following her graduation in 1962 from Hershey High School, the family returned to Gothenburg.
On Jan. 17, 1966, she was united in marriage to Richard L. “Butch” Bodfield. The couple lived in Greeley, CO, for one year and then spent their married life in Gothenburg.
Bodfield worked at the Buffalo Cafe, the Legion Club, Randazzle Cafe and the Dollar General, all in Gothenburg; and she worked at the Elks Club and Monroe Auto Equipment, both in Cozad. She retired from Monroe in 2004 and she moved to Central City Care Center in December of 2011 to be near her daughter.
?She was a member of the Eagle’s Club. She enjoyed bingo, going to garage sales and visiting with people, but her greatest enjoyment was spending time with her grandchildren, her family said.
?Bodfield was preceded in death by her parents, Harold and Hazel Hayworth; her husband, Butch on July 2, 1996; a brother, Larry Hayworth; and infant sister, Charlotte Hayworth.
