Kenneth, the son of J. Clair and Florence (Burgeson) Woolston, was born on Dec. 2, 1937, in Sutherland. He began school in Waterman Township and finished high school in Sutherland.
He was united in marriage to Evelyn Trost on Dec. 22, 1957, at the EUB Church in Concordia, Kan. They made their home northeast of Sutherland for almost 50 years. They were blessed with two children, a daughter and a son. Their love of the land was shown by the fact that they were the fourth generation to farm the century old Woolston farm. Ken was a member and elder of the Maple Grove Church of God of Sutherland.
Preceding him in death was his father.
Kenneth is survived by his wife, Evelyn of Sutherland; one daughter, Tami Martinek and her husband, Wyman of Madrid; one son, Todd Woolston and his wife, Sue of Boone; four grandchildren; and his mother, Florence of Spencer.
Arrangements are being handled by Warner Funeral Home of Sutherland.
