Authorities have released the name of the woman who was killed in a fire in northeast Iowa Sunday afternoon. The Delaware County Sheriff’s Office has identified the victim as 78-year-old Genny Bennett of Oneida.
Bennett’s body was found in a cornfield by Greeley firefighters after they were called to put out a brush fire. The Sheriff’s Office says Bennett was apparently burning brush when the fire got out of control.
Bennett was the owner of Oneida Nameplate, a local company that has been selling medical jewelry and other items worldwide for over 50 years.
