Thomas M. Feeney

Thomas M. Feeney, age 65, passed away Monday, May 13, 2013, at Wheaton Franciscan–All Saints Medical Center.  Thomas was born in Racine on October 14, 1947, son of the late James F. and LaVerne B. (Nee:  Hay) Feeney.

Doerflinger.  Thomas retired in 2011 after teaching World History at Walden III for thirty years.  An accomplished writer, soon to be published author, and poet, Thomas also enjoyed canoeing, bicycling and photography, and was quite the foodie and connoisseur of great wine.  He was a loving and devoted husband and father who will be dearly missed.

Survivors include his loving wife of thirty-two years, Dorothy; his daughters, Morgan Anne Feeney and Shannon Marie Feeney; sisters-in-law, Phyllis Doerflinger, Patricia Luken, Jackie (Marvin) Sizemore; aunt, Gerry Hay; cousins, John Hay, Al (Marion) Hay; childhood friend, Gus Stanislav; nieces, nephews, other relatives and many dear friends.

A Memorial Service will be held on Friday, May 17, 2013, at 6:30 p.m. at the funeral home with Rev. Tony Larsen officiating.  Relatives and friends may meet with the family Friday at the funeral home from 4:30 p.m. until time of service at 6:30 p.m.  Memorials to Amnesty International, U.S. Chess Trust, or Friends of the Boundary Waters Wilderness have been suggested.

A very special thank you to Dr. Joel Niebuhr, the nurses and staff at Wheaton Franciscan ICU for their loving and compassionate care.
