Donald E. “Donnie” Feldewerd, 58, of Spring Hill, passed away suddenly of kidney cancer, surrounded by his family, March 21, 2023, at the St. Cloud Hospital in St. Cloud.

A Mass of Christian Burial was March 27 at St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Spring Hill with the Rev. Marvin Enneking officiating. Interment will be in the parish cemetery.

Donald Erwin Feldewerd was born Aug. 7, 1964, in Melrose to Aloys and Lorene (Bueckers) Feldewerd. He grew up in rural Spring Hill and graduated in 1982 from Melrose High School. After graduation, Donnie purchased a farm and started farming. On Aug. 29, 1987, he was united in marriage to Lisa Ann Laubach at St. Louis Catholic Church in Paynesville. The couple continued farming while purchasing his parents’ farm. In 1999, they welcomed a “surprise” son, Brandon. Together Donnie, Lisa and Brandon continued farming up until Donnie’s diagnosis.  

He was a member of St. Michael’s Catholic Church, St. Michael’s Men’s Society, Catholic Order of Foresters of New Munich and was a Spring Hill Township supervisor for many years. He enjoyed playing poker Wednesday nights, pontoon rides and, most of all, farming.

Survivors include his wife, Lisa Feldewerd of Spring Hill; son Brandon Feldewerd of Spring Hill; parents Aloys and Lorene Feldewerd of Spring Hill; sisters and brothers, Judy (Steve) Uphoff of New Munich, Marvin Feldewerd, Karen (Mark) Rademacher of New Munich, and Kevin Feldewerd of Spring Hill; mother-in-law Perci Laubach of Paynesville; brothers-in-law Lonnie Laubach of Arizona and Lane (Melissa) Laubach of Cold Spring; and many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

Donnie was preceded in death by his father-in-law, Ron Laubach.

Arrangements were made with Patton-Schad Funeral and Cremation Services of Melrose.
