    Truly blessed to have had Annabelle in my life! I will miss how every morning she would say to me “Morning glory!”. Everyone should follow her example of a young spirit that kept her going. Definitely will always think of her when i here “Just One Look” and “My Achey Brakey Heart”

    My sincere condolences on the loss of your Mother. She was exactly 28 years older than me. What are the odds? She was also only 9 days shy of 103 yrs. old. Truly extraordinary. Once again, sorry she’s gone but am glad you had her so long. Sincerely, Terry L. Schuttler Class of 1966.

    I loved working with Annabelle!! She was always ready to get up and dance, go outside to swing, or turn on her favorite radio station. She will definitely be missed!!

Annabelle Greenfield, 102, of Evansville, Indiana, passed away peacefully on Friday, September 18, 2020. She was born on September 27, 1917 in Dubois County, Indiana to Frank and Nellie Reed. She married the love of her live, James W. (“Bill”) Greenfield, in 1946 and they had four children, Bill, Donnella, Tim, and Mark. She was a member of and very active in the Scott Township General Baptist Church from 1951 until it closed. Annabelle enjoyed spending time with her family, particularly her grandkids and great-grandkids. She loved anything having to do with music—played the organ and guitar, and Annabelle was always the first to request a song on the radio or a piece played on the piano (often by her daughter Donnella). Never one to sit around, she was very active in an aerobics group from age 65-95. Even when they stopped doing aerobics they continued to meet for lunches. When chatting with Annabelle, you could always count on a story about her occasional motorcycle rides on the back of a Harley.

Along with her husband, Annabelle was preceded in death by her brothers Vernon and Robert and a sister Donna and Donna’s daughter Laura. She also lost her son Timothy V. Greenfield, following a long battle with cancer, on March 21, 2020.

Survivors include her daughter Donnella (Bill) Hall, Evansville, Indiana; sons, William (Linda) Greenfield of San Antonio, TX; Mark Greenfield of Evansville, Indiana. Grandchildren, Derek (Gin) Greenfield, Kelly (Steve) Davis, Harry (Bri) Clark, Keith Greenfield, Seth (Gina) Greenfield and Tim Greenfield. Step-grandchildren Rebecca (Josh) Anslinger, William Hall, and Brad (Kayla) Hall, twelve-great-grandchildren and ten step-great-grandchildren and three great-great grandchildren.

The family would like to thank Drs. Mehrzad, Hoover, Koch, Hayden and Samuels for their care of Annabelle. In addition, the family would like to thank Adaptive and particularly Megan for their-in-home care and the caregivers/staff at West River for making Annabelle’s last year more enjoyable.

Arrangements are being handled by Sunset. There will be no services at this time, but the family asks that everyone do a little “Boot Scootin’ Boogie” in Annabelle’s honor.
