On Sunday, August 4, 2019, Glen Feine, 63, retired to farming in heaven where he was immediately welcomed by his parents Vernon and Ethel (Sievers) Feine. He’s catching up with the farmers who have gone before him and relishing in the news that John Deere is the tractor of choice for plowing the heavenly fields. The weather is perfect, the soil is rich, and there is always enough time in the day to get everything done.
While he is enjoying ideal crop growing conditions and machinery that doesn’t break down, his legacy will live on in the family he created with Marcie (Myers) who was by his side until his last breath. His children – Chrissy (Jerry Benedict), Bethany (Joe Notch), Amber (Jordan Rasmussen) and Mike – will reminisce about haying small squares and being woke up to the yell of “cows are out.”
The grandkids – Kasity Benedict (19), Evelyn Notch (9), Autumn Rasmussen (9), Nora Rasmussen (7), Elliot Notch (7), Jax Benedict (7), Gwen Rasmussen (4), and Silas Rasmussen (5 months) – will miss the quick grandpa hugs during chores. He will look down with a smile as they build another fort in the windbreak, climb the bales and dig in the fresh sand pile.
Marcie, Amber, Jordan, his brother Jim and granddaughter Kasity will carry on farming the century-old family farm that has withstood many shifts and changes.
Glen is also survived by his younger brother Randy of Winona, Minn.
Glen was baptized May 13, 1956, confirmed May 10, 1970, and married to Marcie on July 2, 1977, at St. John’s Lutheran of Hart, Minn. Glen’s faith, family and farming were always his top priorities.
Glen completed his degree in Farm Operation and Management from the Winona Area Technical Institute in June 1976. He eventually took over the century-old family farm from his dad (Vernon Feine).
All will miss getting the rundown of what everyone is doing on the farm. And the neighborhood will be under a little less watch without Glen looking up to see who just drove by.
The funeral service for Glen will be at 12 p.m. on Saturday, August 10, 2019, at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Hart, Minn. Burial will be in the church cemetery. Visitation will be from 10 a.m. until the time of the service on Saturday.
Hoff Funeral and Cremation Service in Rushford is assisting the family with arrangements.
