Harold and Marie Pilfold

Harold M. Pilfold and Marie E. Pilfold
Rosehill Cemetery - Waverly, Nebraska


JULY 5, 1918 - Aug. 22, 2007

DEC. 27, 1912 - MAY 19, 1999

Marie Pilfold was my Sunday School teacher when I was a young girl, about seven years old. Everyone knew Harold as "Shorty" and he ran the service station in Greenwood, Nebraska when I was a kid. I was wandering around Rosehill Cemetery one Sunday morning, walking up and down the rows of tombstones and came across Shorty and Marie's burial place.
