Doris Feine

Doris Marilyn Feine, 78, of St. Charles, died surrounded by her family at her home on Saturday, Oct. 1, 2011, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Doris was born at home in Rushford on June 4, 1933, to Edward and Josephine (Woxland) Peterson. After graduating from Rushford High School in 1951, she was united in marriage to Kenneth Feine on Aug. 25, 1951. When they moved to St. Charles in 1965, Doris and Ken became members at St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church. For over 30 years, Doris worked as a supervisor in the touch-up department of Camera Art in Lewiston.

Doris and Ken enjoyed collecting antiques at garage and estate sales. They traveled to many states and loved wintering in Arizona. She was devoted to her family and supported her grandchildren’s many events, which were always written on the calendar. Her famous sponge cookies will always be remembered.

She is survived by her loving husband of over 60 years, Kenneth Feine; children, Gary (Kate) Feine of Preston, Sherry (Dave) Thompson of Stewartville, Mark (Dianne) Feine of St. Marys, Ga., and Tami (Norm) Doty of St. Charles; 11 grandchildren, Lucas Feine, Caleb (Tara) Feine, Josh Thompson, Zachary Thompson, Anthony Thompson, Amanda Thompson, Molly (Greg) Waugh, Abby Feine, Mackenzie Doty, Hannah Doty and Allie Doty; three great-grandchildren, Andrew Feine, Tyler Feine and Lauren Raymond; sisters, Jane (Pete) Quamen and Connie (Gary) Boyum; brother, Dennis (Ruth) Peterson; sisters-in-law, Delaine Kjos and Irene (Merlin) Doblar; and many nieces, nephews, and friends.

Doris is preceded in death by her parents; mother-in-law, Eleanor Feine; father-in-law, Willard Feine; and brother-in-law, Carroll Kjos.


A visitation will be held from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 5, at Hoff Funeral & Cremation Service in St. Charles, and also one hour prior to the service at church. Funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 6, at St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church in St. Charles, with Reverend Larry La Dassor officiating. Interment will be in the Brand Cemetery in Hart.
