Doug died on Wednesday, Dec. 1, 2021 from injuries suffered in an accident on the farm.
Douglas Donald Feine was born Oct. 16, 1951, in La Crosse, Wisconsin to Irvin and Marilyn (Luhmann) Feine. He grew up on the family farm in rural Rushford and attended Rushford High School graduating in 1969. He enlisted into the U.S Air Force where he was trained as an aviation mechanic.
Douglas was married on June 6, 1970, at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Plainview, to Beverly A. Zabel. Following his discharge in 1973, the young family moved from Duluth to Stewartville. Doug earned his boiler operator's certification and was employed for 13 years at AMPI in Rochester, working in plant maintenance. Doug was then employed as maintenance coordinator at the opening of the new Olmsted Waste to Energy Facility and worked there for 28 years, retiring in 2015. Beverly was employed for 30 years at Minnesota Energy Resources in Rochester.
In 1988 the Feines moved east of Stewartville where they built a new home and began to farm. In 1998, they expanded their farming operation and formed a partnership with Eric and Kim (Feine family farms). Doug was a long-time member of St. John's Lutheran Church in Stewartville, serving on many boards, and currently was director of trustees. Doug enjoyed hunting and, following retirement, taking RV trips, including one to Alaska. He especially enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren.
Doug is survived by his wife Beverly; son, Eric (Kim) of rural Spring Valley; daughter, Lesli (Chris) Nelson of Park Hills, Missouri; four grandchildren, Autumn Feine, Samantha Feine, Allyson Nelson, and Chase Nelson; sisters, Melanie (Herman) Laumb of Houston and Anne (Dave) Dahlen of Zumbrota; and brothers Calvin (Lynn) Feine of Stewartville and Dean (Laurie) Feine of Rushford.
A time of visitation for family and friends will take place from 5-7 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 6, 2021 at St. John's Lutheran Church and one hour prior to the service at the church on Tuesday morning.
